    Indiana Head Coach Tom Crean

    Opening Statement
    "We really don't because this is what our biggest issue is living with guys who don't understand. There are some unacceptable numbers for us. We can call it inexperience, we can call it youth, but I call it soft. We can't win with 31 deflections and 35 rebounds. We got very quiet early on in the game. Leadership is not going to come from one person, not the way this team is built. It's got to come collectively."

    "So many turnovers were unforced. I told the team this morning that the scariest thing going into a road game was our mentality. We're not disciplined enough to move the ball consistently. I'm really disappointed in our toughness and lack of rebounding, lack of screens, that's not the way we practice and not the way we played against Michigan."

    "We don't have the 1-2 guys that will pull people together - we will eventually, whether it's through development or through recruiting. We've got to continue to upgrade our team constantly. Our practices have not been indicative of this."

    "We need to go home and have tough practices. The last thing we're going to do is back off. We're going to continue to fight and battle or I'm not going to play certain guys. You can't have your front line get seven rebounds. I can't have players that are capable of so much more not get those balls."
