The Indianapolis Star is now reporting that Jamarcus Ellis and Armon Bassett have been dismissed from the Indiana basketball team.
This is a story we’ve been following for a week. As the Star report states, Bassett and Ellis have been late to a series of meetings. Our sources also say that they then refused to accept the punishment meted out by interim coach Dan Dakich.
He wanted them to run. They wouldn’t run.
When the team met today, Ellis and Bassett were not there.
So far, we’ve been unable to reach Ellis, Bassett or Dakich.
This is yet another interesting development in a season full of them.
Dakich said he would clean up the culture at IU and this appears to be a step in that direction.
But it is a bit curious that Dakich has been left in place to make decisions about the team that some other coach will probably inherit. It seems like Bassett and Ellis would have to do more than show up late for a few meetings and disobey a lame-duck coach to get completely booted from the program.
More on this as the story develops.
