Video, Transcript: Crean, Ferrell, Sheehey after IU’s loss to Illinois at Big Ten tournament

Tom Crean, Yogi Ferrell and Will Sheehey met with the media following Indiana’s 64-54 loss to Illinois in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Watch their postgame comments and read a full transcript below:

Q. You guys got it going from the three-point line in the first half, missed the last 11. Did they come out on you more? What changed the rest of the game?

WILL SHEEHEY: The ones in the first half kind of came off movement and penetration. The second half we didn’t necessarily get the same penetration and movement that we did the first half.

Q. I’ll ask both of you, the zones seemed to give you some troubles. Was that a big factor in the game for you? You came out the second half really penetrating and they went to the zone. There must have been a reason for it.

YOGI FERRELL: We needed to move the ball more, still kind of play inside and out. But we didn’t do that the second half.

WILL SHEEHEY: I think we had some sets where we actually did have some pretty good movement within the zone but it wasn’t on a consistent basis.

Notes, quotes from Crean on Big Ten coaches teleconference

ITHUM002

The Big Ten held its weekly coaches teleconference on Monday morning to review the final week of conference play and to look ahead to this week’s Big Ten tournament at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Here are some notes and quotes from Tom Crean’s appearance:

· Prior to the call, the conference announced that Indiana’s Troy Williams was named the league’s freshman of the week and Nebraska’s Shavon Shields and Michigan’s Nik Stauskas were named the league’s co-players of the week.

· Opening comments: “We’re getting ready right now full-tilt for Illinois. We have great respect for them and really, with the exception of their game with Michigan last week, they have been playing great basketball over the last month. I don’t think there’s any question that they are playing with excellent confidence. Their defense is at a high level and they are really, really playing with tremendous energy. We’re going to have our work cut out for us at any point in time with anybody in this league, but certainly going into this game, we have great respect for what they are doing and how they are progressing and that’s where we sit.”

· On what Illinois is doing so well on the defensive end towards the end of the season: “I think they are just trying to control tempo. They are much like Ohio State in that they create a lot of turnovers with the way if you’re loose with the basketball. If you drive it into traffic, they make you pay for that. They are very strong defensively. They are opportunistic with their running game. The bottom line is that they are making it hard for you to get good looks and they expose you if you over-handle. And they are rebounding at a high rate. Those are the things that stand out the most to me.”

Hoosiers can’t stop second-half Wolverines effort, fall short in 84-80 defeat

ITHUM003

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The same script has played out over and over for Indiana this season: build a lead on the road and watch it slip away into a loss.

It happened on Saturday, once again.

After the Hoosiers built a 10-point lead in the first half at the Crisler Center, a 12-turnover second half saw the Hoosiers’ lead evaporate. And in the regular season finale, the Michigan Wolverines (23-7, 15-3) emerged with an 84-80 victory over the Hoosiers (17-14, 7-11) in front of an announced crowd of 12,701.

“There’s times this year, hence our record, that we haven’t been as consistent,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said following the game. “Even though we lost the game today, we did a lot of good things that we can build on.

“But it’s still the same things.”

Throughout Saturday afternoon’s game, though, the Hoosiers’ offense clicked. Against the conference’s No. 10 defense in league play, Indiana averaged 1.23 points per possession — its most since a 102-84 win over Washington on Nov. 21.
