Notes, quotes from Tom Crean on the Big Ten teleconference

IUMVS0009

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

· On Tuesday’s game at Wisconsin, how the Badgers match up with IU on the perimeter and what the Hoosiers will need to do defensively: “Taking size out of it, which is hard to do because they are so big at numerous positions, but the bottom line is how skilled they are. It would be one thing if it was just big guys that could do one or two things, but they can do a lot of things. They can drive the ball, they can pass the ball, they can all shoot the ball and they can all shoot it with range, especially now with the way Nigel Hayes is shooting it and Sam (Dekker) and Frank (Kaminsky) have improved immensely over a period of time. They’ve got seven or eight guys right now, taking Traevon (Jackson) out, it’s even surprising how they’ve played. It just goes to show the skill level in the system when you take a guy like Traevon out of the equation. The problem is that you cannot give into anything. If you back off of someone, they can knock in a 3, if you help, they can kick the ball, if you help they can all get to the offensive glass, so it’s really about defending the personnel as much as it is defending how they run their offense and it’s coming down and really understanding what you need to get defensively. We can’t get overly caught up in the lack of size that we have and the abundance that they have. We’ve got to get really caught up in the skill level of the players.”
