BLOOMINGTON – Indiana forward Jeremy Hollowell will miss his third straight game and the university and the NCAA look into compliance issues.Athletic director Fred Glass released a statement less than an hour before Friday night's tipoff between IU and Jacksonville. He said the problem doesn't involve “any improper actions or inactions by the institutition or the men's basketball program.”

Glass also said Hollowell and his family initially raised these issues, that Hollowell has cooperated in the matter and that, in Glass' opinion, Hollowell “appears to be a victim –not a perpetrator – in this matter.”

Hollowell has appeared in 10 games this season and averaged 5.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.3 minutes.

Here is the official release:

“As he has for the last two games, Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass has directed the men's basketball program to withhold Jeremy Hollowell from tonight's game pending resolution of NCAA compliance issues. While stating that it is premature to discuss these issues in any detail, Glass stated that they do not involve any improper actions or inactions by the institution or its men's basketball program. Glass further stated that Jeremy and his family are actually the ones to initially raise these issues, that Jeremy has continued to fully cooperated in this matter, and that in Glass's opinion Jeremy appears to be a victim–not a perpetrator–in this matter. Glass expressed his appreciation to the NCAA for its assistance and cooperation and his optimism that these issues will soon be resolved. Until then, neither he nor anyone else at IU will have any further comment.”
