IU's Crean suspends Masquera-Perea

Indiana forward Hanner Masquera-Perea was indefinitely suspended Friday after an arrest for drunken driving.

Hoosiers coach Tom Crean, whose team plays at Purdue on Saturday, made the announcement on his Twitter account Friday night.

Crean wrote in five separate posts: "I had a chance to speak with Hanner before we left for Purdue. The first things I told him were that we loved him and wanted to support him. Hanner has let his family, loved ones and our program down and he knows that with choices come consequences. The law will handle some as will we. He will not be with us at Purdue and we will continue to work with him on a daily basis and will be withheld from competition indefinitely.

"We are disappointed in him but also disappointed for him. He knows he made some terrible choices which have turned into big mistakes."

Masquera-Perea was arrested and charged Friday morning with operating while intoxicated with endangerment and operating with a blood alcohol content of 0.15 percent or higher. The 0.15 blood alcohol content is nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Masquera-Perea had played a limited role in all 24 games this season averaging 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8 minutes.
