LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A pair of Indiana University basketball players were cited for underage alcohol possession last week.
Thomas Bryant, a highly-touted 18-year-old freshman center and Emmitt Holt, a 19-year-old Sophomore were cited Friday morning at 12:50 AM according to WTHR-TV in Indianapolis. Each was allegedly observed in the possession of a bottle of vodka as car passengers outside a Convenient Food Mart on Dunn Street in Bloomington.
The school released this statement Monday afternoon.
"We are aware that men's basketball players Emmitt Holt and Thomas Bryant were each cited Friday for underage possession of alcohol. We take this matter very seriously and are continuing to gather information."
Holt was the driver of a car that hit teammate Devin Davis. Holt had a blood alcohol content of .025 at the time of the accident and was suspended from two exhibition games and the first two regular season games. A pair of I.U. big men, Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea were dismissed from the team earlier this summer after a citation for marijuana possession. Coach Tom Crean cited a pattern of poor decisions.
