INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — 5th ranked Indiana will have freshman forward Jeremy Hollowell back Monday, at Iowa. Hoosiers athletic director Fred Glass issued a statement Sunday saying the NCAA has cleared Hollowell of any potential infractions. On Friday, Glass said Hollowell and his family notified the school of a potential “compliance issue.” Glass says those details will be released later.

Glass thanked the NCAA for making a quick ruling and accepting Indiana’s self-reported secondary violation, which led to the immediate reinstatement of Hollowell. Indiana can use another body in the line-up after losing sophomore forward Austin Etherington for the season to a fractured left kneecap. Backup guard Maurice Creek also is out indefinitely with a right foot injury.
