Crean: “There’s certainly no way” Devin Davis plays this season

_JS25416

Indiana sophomore Devin Davis, who returned to school this semester after a traumatic brain injury in early November, will not play this season.

On the ESPNU college basketball podcast this morning with Andy Katz and Seth Greenburg, IU coach Tom Crean said that Davis has returned to classes, but not on a full-time basis, and that the hope is that he’ll be fully recovered for next season.

“He’s got a lot of different things that he’s having to deal with and continuing to build his therapy,” Crean told Katz. “He’s making progress, the doctors say he’s making progress and his attitude is great. There’s certainly no way he’s going to play this year, obviously, but hopefully he’s going to have a full recovery and an even better understanding and maturity to be able to go next year.”

Notes, quotes from Tom Crean on the Big Ten teleconference

IUMary0005

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

· Opening statement: “Well we’ve got a short time here after playing yesterday to get ready for Purdue who is playing very, very well. So our focus is on that and at the same time, we’ve got to continue to learn from our week. We did some really good things in our Maryland win and we turned back around against Ohio State and did some good things, but we didn’t do enough of them. And Ohio State played very, very well and we’ve got to continue to understand how to get people out of their comfort zone, how to take away strengths of the other team and at the same time, continue to play to our strengths. Part of the challenge is making sure that we’re teaching these guys constantly what enables them to win, why they’re successful and keep moving on and moving forward with all of those type of things and that’s what we’re looking forward to doing today and as we get ready for Purdue.”

· On the status of Robert Johnson: “I didn’t realize this until we saw it on the film, which is really disappointing, when he fell, there was actually, it looked like, a red folder or papers that were laying close enough to the court that he slipped on, that were on the baseline by the cheerleaders. It’s one of those inadvertent things you hope never happens, but it did and they were just laying there as he finished his layup. So we didn’t realize that at the time in the game, at least I didn’t realize it until we saw it on the film, but I think the best news for Robert is that he went back into the game and now we have to continue to monitor it in a very close way and hopefully it doesn’t linger. But he was treating it last night and moving forward with that. It’s really going to be … we’ll just go and see what happens at the end of the day and see how he feels and as we get closer tomorrow and I don’t think it’s anything that is going to be long lasting, but there’s nothing that says it’s going to be OK for this game either, so it’s too early to tell I think.”

Five takeaways from Indiana’s win over Maryland

IUMary0022

Indiana moved to 15-4 overall and 5-1 in the Big Ten with an 89-70 rout of No. 13 Maryland on Thursday night at Assembly Hall.

Here’s a look at five takeaways from the win over the Terrapins:

· This was easily Indiana’s best offensive performance of the season: The numbers speak for themselves: 1.39 points per possession against a team that came in giving up .90 points per possession in Big Ten play. 15-of-22 from behind the 3-point line. An effective field goal percentage of 75. And a turnover percentage of just 15.6 percent, a number that was a rarity a season ago.

Add it all up and the onslaught was just too much for even a red-hot Maryland team, which came into Assembly Hall with a three-game winning streak and a 17-2 record overall.

“Indiana was terrific all night from the start to the end,” Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon said. “Made some incredible shots. Yogi Ferrell made a lot of tough shots. (James) Blackmon was great. The whole team was great and they were hard to guard.”
