STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Guard Jamarcus Ellis missed Indiana's (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) regular-season finale Sunday against Penn State because of disciplinary reasons.

Hoosiers interim coach Dan Dakich made the announcement in a statement released before the Hoosiers were upset by the Nittany Lions. He said Ellis did not travel with the team to Happy Valley.

Ellis is averaging 7.1 points a game in his first season at Indiana after transferring from a junior college.
