             === NCAA upholds 9-game bans for Indiana freshmen ===
 
 Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Peter Jurkin and Hanner Perea, the Indiana
 freshmen  basketball players  suspended  nine games  for taking  impermissible
 benefits  from a  university booster, had their appeal denied on Friday by the
 NCAA Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement.
 
 The booster in question gave Jurkin and Perea $6,000 and $8,000, respectively,
 in  benefits,  including "plane tickets,  meals, housing, a laptop, cell phone
 and  clothing," even housing the foreign-born student-athletes during multiple
 summers.
 
 Jurkin  and  Perea are  required  to  repay  "$250 and  approximately  $1,590,
 respectively, to charities of their choice."
 
 The  duo  has already  missed five  games -- all  Hoosier wins  -- and will be
 eligible to play on Dec. 15 at Butler.
 
 The  report stated  Indiana has  suspended its  relationship with  the booster
 until July 1, 2013.
