ESPN.com’s Andy Katz is reporting that IU freshmen Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin won an appeal that will allow them to travel to Brooklyn for Indiana’s games on Monday and Tuesday in the Barclays Center, but neither player will be in uniform.
According to Katz, Tom Crean said today that the appeal for a reduction in the 9-game suspension for Mosquera-Perea and Jurkin will be held on Friday.
UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad won his appeal with the NCAA this past Friday, which made him eligible to compete immediately.
Muhammad will play for the Bruins tonight against Georgetown and potentially against Indiana on Tuesday if both teams win on Monday.

It has been quite some time since we saw the old Bobby Knight.

Watch and listen to what both players had to say in the embedded media players below:
BROOKLYN — Thoughts on a 66-53 in over Georgia:
I. Here’s the reality of this one: Yes, it was ugly for the first 30 or so minutes, but Indiana’s final offensive surge to end the game made it respectable. The Hoosiers ended up shooting 51.5% on 2s and after starting out just 1-of-12 on 3-pointers, four late ones had them at 5-of-16 for the night (31.3%). That adds up to a...
Indiana is still a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll and Louisville is again a solid second. Then come the changes, with Kentucky dropping five spots to eighth.
The Hoosiers (3-0) receive 46 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. The Cardinals (5-0) get the other 19 No. 1 votes.
Ohio State and Michigan both move up one place...
