BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University men's basketball coach Tom Crean has suspended indefinitely junior guard Devan Dumes for his actions during Saturday's game at Michigan State.
"After coming home and having the opportunity to review the game film, I believe that discipline is necessary and deserved in this matter," said Crean. "A line was crossed that was unacceptable. However, Devan is one of ours and like with all of our players we want them to learn and understand what it takes to be successful."
Dumes will not play when IU visits Minnesota on Tuesday night.
"I truly regret my actions and I will learn from this situation," said Dumes. "I apologize to everyone involved for doing something that is uncharacteristic of how I play the game. I am looking forward to putting this behind me and being a better leader to my teammates."
Dumes will continue to practice and travel with the team.
