Indiana suspends Williams, Robinson four games for failed drug tests
Indiana head coach Tom Crean announced Monday that sophomores Troy Williams and Stanford Robinson have been suspended four games each due to failed drug tests, according to the Indianapolis Star. ESPN's Jeff Goodman first reported the news.
Davis remains in serious condition in the hospital but is improving. Holt registered a blood alcohol concentration of 0.025 and was cited for illegal consumption of alcohol and operating a vehicle with a BAC above .02.
Williams, a forward, started all 32 games for the Hoosiers last season, averaging 7.3 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. Robinson, a guard, started nine games but played in all 32, averaging 6.4 points and 2.5 rebounds.
Behind junior Yogi Ferrell, Williams and Robinson are Indiana's next two leading returning scorers.
Holt was a three-star recruit coming out of high school and is from Webster, New York.
Several former Hoosiers players took to Twitter to address the state of the program following news of the suspensions Monday night:
