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.

DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns Sunday to lift Denver to a 38-3 win over Kansas City that sealed the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs for the Broncos. Manning finished the season with 4,659 yards, only 41 short of his career high. He finished with 37 touchdown passes, and none will be more memorable than the last two — circus catches by Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas that turned the game into a blowout.

Denver (13-3) won its 11th straight and leaped past Houston for the top seed after the Texans lost to Indianapolis 28-16 earlier in the day. The Chiefs gained only 119 yards all day and finished their season 2-14. They will get the top pick in April’s draft.
