NCAA upholds suspensions for two Indiana players

INDIANAPOLIS — Two players for No. 1 Indiana have lost their appeals for reduced suspensions.

Freshman forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea and freshman center Peter Jurkin must sit out the remaining four games of their nine-game suspensions including Tuesday night's showdown with No. 9 North Carolina.

The NCAA ruled Nov. 6 both players would have to sit out after accepting benefits from an AAU coach who donated $185 to the school's Varsity Club. The school says those donations stopped in 1992. Under NCAA rules, though, the coach still fits the definition of a booster. Neither would have been suspended had they chosen another school because the benefits are permissible under NCAA rules unless they are provided by a booster.

Indiana is 5-0.

Athletic director Fred Glass says he is disappointed by the rulings.
