Former IU basketball players react to recent news

Former Indiana basketball players weighed in Monday with their reactions to the recent suspensions involving Emmitt Holt, Troy Williams and Stanford Robinson.

IU athletic director Fred Glass told The Herald-Times on Monday night that seeing the tweets of former players touched an emotional chord.

“I saw some tweets from Derek Elston, Jordy (Hulls), Cody (Zeller) and Verdell (Jones) and those really hit home with me – using words such as ‘privilege’ and ‘higher standard’ and ‘hard work’ and ‘accountability.’” Glass said. “And (we’ve seen reaction) from even players before them, but those are Tom’s guys who helped bring this program back.

“We owe it to them and every former player at Indiana, and to Hoosier Nation, to represent Indiana basketball the right way. And we’ve had some guys not do that. And we’re going to set about doing everything we possibly can to get this where it needs to be.
