IU coach Tom Crean read a prepared statement on the absence from action of freshman forward Jeremy Hollowell after Friday's game. Hollowell did not play against Mount Saint Mary's, though he dressed. He did not dress out Friday.
Crean statement: Jeremy is dealing with a personal and a private matter that is in no way related to academic behavior or disciplinary issues. He has our full support as we look for a quick resolution. Out of respect for he and his family, we will not discuss it any further.
So far this season, Hollowell has appeared in 10 games (all but the last two), averaging 13.3 minutes, 5.7 points and three rebounds per game.
