Indiana sophomore Yogi Ferrell and freshman Stanford Robinson were arrested early Friday morning for minor consumption of alcohol and possession of fake IDs outside of Kilroy's Sports Bar in Bloomington.

Both players, and Indiana coach Tom Crean issued statements about the arrests on Friday afternoon. Here's what they had to say.

FERRELL: "I apologize for letting down my family, coaches, teammates and fans and truly regret the mistake I made. This is something I have to learn from, use better judgement and I have a responsibility as a leader on this team to make sure nothing like this happens again."

ROBINSON: "I'm very sorry for my actions. I know I have embarrassed my family and this program and have let a lot of people down. I have no excuses for the mistakes I made and I take full responsibility for them."

CREAN: "We are aware of the two infractions with a couple of the guys on our team. One of our big problems on the court this year was solid decision making, which directly mirrors our lack of decision making off the court. We had too many players that had a maturity problem all year and that maturity has not grown yet to where it needs to be. This isn't about a time of year or a special week on campus. This is about poor judgment, selfishness of actions, and disrespect for what this program stands for. We will continue as we have all year to push the responsibility of what it means to play in this basketball program and to represent yourself beyond reproach. We have been successful in doing that in the past and will continue to demand those same principles."
