Coach Crean's Weekly Press Conference
Nov. 5, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Head Coach Tom Crean met with members of the media on Wednesday afternoon to talk about his team's progress and in looking forward to Friday night's exhibition against Anderson. He was joined by players Devan Dumes and Nick Williams.
Indiana will begin its 109th season of men's basketball when it hosts Anderson University, an NCAA Division III institution from nearby Anderson, Indiana, on Friday evening. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. at Assembly Hall. The contest will be the first for Coach Crean and his staff.
Crean and his staff will put one of the least experienced teams in NCAA Division I history on the floor for the 2008-09 season. Senior Kyle Taber (28 points) and sophomore walk-on Brett Finkelmeier (2 points) are all that return from last year's 25-8 squad which advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Indiana will take the floor with seven new scholarship players and three additional walk-ons to start the season with Taber and Finkelmeier during the first semester.
