IU basketball down to 10 scholarship players for Sunday game vs. Louisiana

The luxury Indiana was enjoying when it started its last two games with all 13 scholarship players available has quickly vanished.

The Hoosiers will be down to just 10 available scholarship players when they face Louisiana on Sunday evening.

As we previously reported, Trey Galloway is out after having surgery on a wrist injury.  Indiana has labeled him as out indefinitely, although social media posts by his family indicate a 4-6 week timeline.

As we reported in our Report Card following the St. John’s game, point guard Rob Phinisee has a calf injury and he will not play tonight.  Indiana is officially describing Phinisee’s issue as “a leg injury he suffered in the second half against St. John’s.”  Indiana’s backup point guard, Phinisee is averaging 4.0 points in 20.3 minutes of action per contest.

Finally, freshman center Logan Duncomb has been suspended for three games following a violation of team rules.  Indiana did not release any further details regarding the rules violation.  He has appeared in one game and logged four minutes.

IU (3-0) and Louisiana tip at 7:30 p.m. Eastern.  The game will be televised on BTN.
