BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Senior guard Donald Perry left the Indiana basketball team Wednesday.
Coach Mike Davis said Perry, who was suspended for six weeks earlier this season, decided he didn't want to be part of the program after the Hoosiers'

"We're disappointed that Donald is leaving, but we wish him the best," Davis said.
Perry did not attend Tuesday's game at Ohio State.
He was suspended in October for a violation of team rules although Indiana officials never identified which rules were broken. Perry was reinstated in
December and played in three games for a total of 8 minutes.
