After being cited for possession of marijuana and subsequently suspended, Devin Davis has now been dismissed from Indiana along with his teammate Hanner Mosquera-Perea (who was with him when he got caught). Indiana announced that both have been dismissed from the school with a release issued on Thursday.
Indiana put out release stating (h/t Brent Yarina via Twitter):
“Indiana Men’s Basketball announces that sophomore Devin Davis and senior Hanner Mosquera-Perea have been dismissed from the program effective immediately for not living up to their responsibilities to the program.”
Davis missed all of last season after being involved in a car accident where teammate Emmitt Holt was the driver, even though he did not cause the accident. Holt was suspended four games for underage drinking.
With head coach Tom Crean perhaps on the hot seat, this is not exactly the start he needs heading into next season. Davis missed all of the 2014-15 season but averaged 2.4 points in 8.4 minutes per game as a freshman. Mosquera-Perea, meanwhile, is coming off a season in which he averaged 6.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game on .594 shooting from the field. Their loss will certainly will affect the Hoosiers’ depth next season.
Indiana is coming off a season in which they went 20-14 and made it back to the NCAA Tournament, before losing to Wichita State in the Round of 64.
