Indiana’s 6’3″ junior guard Devonte Green is suspended indefinitely as of January 22, 2019. He will not play this evening against the Northwestern Wildcats.
“Indiana University junior Devonte Green, a member of the men’s basketball team, has been suspended from game competition for not meeting the standards expected of members of the program,” and “there will be no further comment on the matter at this time.”
No further details have been released as of yet from Indiana University or Archie Miller. He did not travel to Evanston today with the rest of the team. There are rumors to why he is suspended for which we will abstain from spreading until we have further confirmation.
He also sent this cryptic tweet earlier today, which he later deleted.
Devonte has contributed 8.0 ppg and 3.3 rebounds while leading the team with 3.2 assists per game. He has seen an increase in minutes as of late during conference play due to injuries facing the Hoosiers especially when Phinisee was injured earlier this month and last month. His season high in points was 19 against Central Arkansas.
To make matters worse, De’Ron Davis is not playing against Northwestern on January 22. Fortunately, Race Thompson is in uniform against the Wildcats. With numerous fluctuations to the roster, Archie and the Hoosiers will need to find a formula that works and quickly to not further complicate the season as the Hoosiers are still facing a 4 game loss streak. They are going to go with the same starting 5 as they did against Purdue.
