On Thursday evening, the Indiana Athletic Department announced that sophomore forward Devin Davis and junior forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea had been dismissed from the team. The dismissal comes after Davis was cited for possession of marijuana by the Indiana University Police Department. Mosquera-Perea was also present during the incident.
Indiana's Athletic Department released the following statement:
"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," per the school.
Davis missed all of last season for Indiana following a head injury as the result of a car accident in early November of 2014. During his freshman season, he played in 19.8% of the team's minutes and had an offensive rating of 98.3 over the course of the season. He scored a season high of 10 points against Chicago State.
Mosquera-Perea played 37.0% of the team's minutes last season including 19 points in the team's NCAA Tournament game against Wichita State. He was considered to be one of the team's better frontcourt players last season.
With the two dismissals, Indiana is now two scholarships under the limit for the 2015-16 season. The Hoosiers have now seen a total of 5 players either transfer or be dismissed from the program this offseason. Jeremiah April, Max Hoetzel, and Stanford Robinson all opted to transfer and now both Devin Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea have been dismissed from the roster.
