Tom Crean announces suspension for Hanner Mosquera-Perea

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Indiana head coach Tom Crean took to Twitter on Friday night to discuss the Hanner Mosquera-Perea situation.

Less than 48 hours before Indiana's Saturday game at Purdue, sophomore forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea was arrested and booked on charges of operating while intoxicated. Mosquera-Perea was also charged with operating with a blood alcohol content of .15 or greater.

As a result, Crean has decided to suspended him from games indefinitely.

"I had a chance to speak with Hanner before we left for Purdue," Crean's statement read. "The first things I told him were that we loved him and wanted to support him. We are disappointed in him but also disappointed for him. He knows he made some terrible choices which have turned into big mistakes. Hanner has let his family, loved ones and our program down and he knows that with choices come consequences. The law will handle some as will we. He will not be with us at Purdue and we will continue to work with him on a daily basis and will be withheld from competition indefinitely."

Mosquera-Perea is averaging 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds.
