Notes, quotes from Tom Crean on the Big Ten teleconference

IUMinn0051

The Big Ten held its weekly coaches teleconference on Monday morning to review the seventh week of conference play. Here are some notes and quotes from Tom Crean’s appearance:

On how important it will be to have Hanner Mosquera-Perea available against Purdue: 

“Well I think it’s extremely important because it just provides a different kind of length and size. But we have got to do a really good job of moving our post defense around and we have got to do an even better job this time of moving Purdue around when they are on defense. And we are looking forward to that and really pull them into a position where they have got to guard more of the court or make a decision if they are going to guard more of the court. But bottom line is you can’t give inside players like A.J. Hammons and Isaac Haas any one steady diet. They’re very good at maneuvering and making moves and making counter-moves.”

Hoosiers come up one play short in loss at Maryland

021215jsj

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Indiana came into Wednesday’s game against Maryland at the XFinity Center with five Big Ten wins and no losses in games decided by six points or less. In close games, the Hoosiers had been making plays when it mattered most on the way to a 7-4 mark in conference play.

IU’s first trip to Maryland with the Terrapins as a Big Ten member presented another opportunity in a back and forth contest that came down to the final possession.

Mark Turgeon would call it a “great college basketball game” afterward. Tom Crean shared that sentiment, calling the contest “tremendous.”

But on a night where neither team would lead by more than six points and the lead changed hands 18 times, the Hoosiers could never seize control.

The result? A 68-66 loss in a game where Indiana could not make one more play to push past Maryland for a win. Victory was there for the taking and the Hoosiers simply could not grab it.

“We withstood some poor shooting, we withstood some excellent shooting from them, and at the same time we made plays,” Crean said. “We just made one less (play). It was a great win for them, tough loss for us and a great battle all around.”

Indiana had numerous chances to make just one more play.
