    Rosemont, Ill. - Coach Tom Crean and sophomore Verdell Jones III represented Indiana University Thursday morning at the annual Big Ten Media Day in Chicago at the Crowne Plaza O'Hare Hotel.

    Crean addressed the media in a press conference before participating in one-on-one interviews. Jones also participated in one-on-one interviews, as well as recorded interviews with the Big Ten Network.

    Jones averaged 11.9 points per game in Big Ten play a year ago and averaged more than 14 points per game in the final few weeks of the season. He is a native of Champaign, Illinois.

    The Hoosiers have a busy week ahead. They will be introduced at the Varsity Club Tip-Off Pep Rally Thursday evening and hold a free public scrimmage as part of their Haunted Hall of Hoops program on Saturday. The Hoosiers will sign autographs and hand out candy at 3 p.m., and have a workout and scrimmage at 4 p.m. A children's costume parade will be held at halftime.

    Their highly-coveted schedule calendar will be available in the Varsity Shop for the players to sign before the event.

    Indiana opens their exhibition season on Wednesday, November 4, at 7 p.m. against Grace College.
