Hollowell to return Monday at Iowa

Freshman forward Jeremy Hollowell will suit up and is expected to play for IU against Iowa in the Big Ten Opener for both teams on Monday. He has missed the last three games as the team investigated his family's possible connection with an agent.

It could be the first game this season in which all four of IU's freshmen play.

Hollowell is averaging 5.7 points per contest.

IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass issued a statement on Sunday regarding the issue and said IU has self-reported the incident as a secondary violation and has reinstated Hollowell immediately.

The extent of the statement is as follows.

"Earlier today we were advised by the NCAA that they have accepted our self-reported secondary violation involving Jeremy Hollowell and, consistent with our proposal, immediately reinstated his eligibility. He will travel with the rest of the team to Iowa and be eligible to play in that game and all other games going forward. I would like to thank the NCAA for its assistance and responsiveness, especially during this holiday season when their office is officially closed. I also thank Jeremy Hollowell and his mother Chandra Lockett who raised this issue and have continued to be forthright and forthcoming throughout this matter. Finally, I thank our athletic department and men's basketball staff who worked diligently and professionally to help bring this to a positive conclusion.  I am proud of how Indiana University has handled this situation. We will release the details of this matter later this week. Until then we will have no further comment."
