Thought this was interesting

Bassett, Ellis kicked off team by IU's Dakich

From AP and Indy Star dispatches

Indiana University basketball starters Armon Bassett and Jamarcus Ellis were dismissed from the team by interim coach Dan Dakich, The Indianapolis Star reported yesterday.

Both players missed two prearranged meetings last week. They were told if they missed the second meeting, they would be kicked off the team.

Bassett, a sophomore, averaged 11.4 points a game last season. Ellis, a junior, averaged 6.8.




I also read somewhere that they didn't show up for their punishment either. I have a hard time feeling sorry for them.

Some were speculating that Dakich was making the situation look worse for any incoming coach so that they might turn the job down and Dakich get the position by default. Looks like that myth was debunked.

They missed the meeting, then missed the run in the morning that was punishment for missing the meeting. My guess is Dakich was trying to clean up house and get rid of the bad seeds, regardless of if he was staying. He's a good coach who doesn't take crap. He was running the program as if he were there for the long haul, so he did what he felt is right. Can't blame him.

I can't blame the guy either. In fact, I have more respect for him. Now, if only the Bengals would do the same thing with Chris Henry and kick his butt off the team. That guy 'allegedly' got in trouble again last night. Threw a beer bottle thru some UC student's window and then punched him. WTF. Henry's claiming it's mistaken identity. But, he turned himself into the police.
