Marijuana Leads to Two Hoosier Players Kicked Off Team

IUNCAAPrac00441

Devin Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea have been kicked off the Indiana Hoosiers basketball team for an incident on Monday that involved a citation for marijuana for Devin Davis. Mosquera-Perea was in the same dorm room hanging out when the police arrived.

Both players were given second chances by IU Coach Tom Crean to remain with the program after making mistakes that exhibited a lack of judgement. In Mosquera-Perea’s case, it was operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol on Feb. 14, 2014, which could have resulted – but fortunately did not – in a serious injury. And in the case of Davis, it was a disregard for Crean’s advice for 20 minutes earlier that night of what to steer clear of on Halloween night. In the early morning hours of Nov. 1, 2014, Davis was involved in a serious accident that also involved alcohol.

Davis missed the entire 2014-2015 season following that accident, and had some major and serious brain injuries.

This is a major blow for both Crean and the Hoosiers. Also lost for Indiana is Max Hoetzel who is leaving after just one year with the team. Max Hoetzel will head to San Diego State to play for Coach Steve Fisher.

Max Hoetzel was my pick to be the sleeper of this years freshman class not just for the Hoosiers, but for the entire NCAA. He will thrive with Coach Fisher after the mandatory sitting out of one year for transferring.

He appeared in 31 games at Indiana and shot 34.5 percent on 3-point field goals in 7.7 minutes per game.
