Louisiana Tech drops four players

# Head coach Kerry Rupp of Louisiana Tech has informed three freshmen, guard Dwayne Lathan of Chatham-West Monroe, La; forward Orren Tims of Ruston, La; and forward Brandon Mims of Shreveport-Evangel Christian, La; along with junior guard Drew Washington of Friendswood-Clear Brook, Tex., that their scholarships would not be renewed for the 2008-09 season. Rupp gave no specific reasoning other than a desire to move the program in a different direction. In Rupp's first season last year, the Bulldogs struggled to a 6-24 finish, including a 3-13 record in Western Athletic Conference games. Lathan, Tims and Washington all played in 30 games, while Mims saw action in 23 contests. The school media relations department released a statement from Rupp: "There are many factors that affect a decision not to renew a scholarship," he said. "High expectations are placed on our student-athletes both on and off the court. This is always a tough decision for a coach, and we wish them the very best in the future."

Morgan gains release from LSU

# New head coach Trent Johnson of LSU has granted a requested release to Top 100 center J'Mison Morgan of Dallas-South Oak Cliff, Tex., ranked No. 39 overall in Class 2008. Morgan, who had signed with the Tigers before the coaching change, is now considering UCLA. "The bottom line with me will always be that I want players here who want to play for LSU," Johnson said. "There is some closure with this decision, but no player will ever be bigger than the program."

Crean: Four players out at Indiana

# Head coach Tom Crean of Indiana has announced that junior forward DeAndre Thomas of Chicago-Westinghouse, Ill/Chipola CC, Fla., will be dismissed from the team. In addition, suspended Armon Bassett, a sophomore guard from Terre Haute-South Vigo, Ind/Hargrave MA, Va; and Jamarcus Ellis, a junior guard/forward from Chicago-Westinghouse, Ill/Chipola CC, Fla., will not be reinstated.

This news comes a day after freshman center/forward Eli Holman of Richmond Cal., told Crean he will not return for next season. Holman became agitated once Crean explained the process for transferring. Because Holman was yelling and angered, campus police were called. Statements were taken but no charges were filed.

"Last night and this morning I had the opportunity to apologize to Coach Crean and today I would like to extend that to everyone involved in the program for allowing my frustrations to get the best of me," Holman said in a statement issued by the university. "I appreciate everything Indiana University and coach Crean have done for me and I hope nothing but the best for the program in the future."

Indiana lost freshman Eric Gordon to the NBA draft when he declared and signed with an agent and seniors D.J. White and Lance Stemler had exhausted their eligibility. The latest departures leaves the Hoosiers with three returning players in sophomores Jordan Crawford, Brandon McGee and senior Kyle Taber. Indiana has signed freshmen Nick Williams (a one-time Marquette recruit), Tom Pritchard, Matt Roth and JC transfer Devon Dumes.

Bassett and Ellis had appealed their earlier suspensions by interim coach Dan Dakich and, after Crean spent time with the pair, there was not enough support to reinstate them. Thomas was deemed not a good fit.

The Hoosiers finished 25-7 (14-4 in the Big Ten) and lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament to Arkansas under Dakich. He had replaced Kelvin Sampson who resigned in late February, a week after receiving a notice of allegations from the NCAA. Crean then left Marquette for the Indiana position. Sampson is expected to join the staff of Milwaukee Bucks for next season.

"Before you build a team you need to develop a family," Crean said in a press release. "We will go through the learning process, feel some growing pains and experience some bumps in the road along the way. We need the Hoosier Nation to rally around this program as we go through these stages."

"Our staff if going to ensure that anyone who attends this University and wears the Indiana uniform will make this privilege among their highest priorities and not treat the opportunity as an entitlement," Crean added.

Eli Holman upset during Hoosier meeting

# Freshman center/forward Eli Holman of Richmond Cal., threw another potential problem into Indiana's rebuilding project, telling coaches he intended to transfer before apparently throwing a tantrum in their office that required a call to the campus police. "His behavior took me, along with the other people in the office, by surprise," coach Tom Crean said in a statement. "We saw him as a danger to himself and wanted to take precautionary measures to help him. We felt bad for Eli and, hopefully, were able to help him."

Capt. Jerry Minger of the Indiana University police department said police were called as more of a precaution and that no one felt threatened. Police did not arrest Holman. "It was first reported that he threw a potted plant, and later the secretary said he knocked it off as he was leaving," Minger said. Athletic director Rick Greenspan took Holman into his office for about an hour as officers waited outside, and Holman left calmly without speaking to police.

Losing Holman would leave Indiana with only five returning players from last season's roster. He averaged 1.0 points and 1.7 rebounds in six games before injuring his left wrist and taking a medical redshirt.
