Dec. 30, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana head coach Tom Crean, along with associate head coach Tim Buckley, senior Jordan Hulls, juniors Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey, and sophomore Cody Zeller preview the Hoosiers' game vs. the Hawkeyes on Monday, Dec. 31 in Iowa City.
Head Coach Tom Crean
"Fran McCaffery has been one of the better coaches in the country for some time. He and his staff have put their stamp on the Iowa program as is evident by how hard they play and how physical they are."
"We're getting ready to go into a tumultuous period, as is everybody else in this league. When you've got this many teams that are ranked, and then you're getting ready to play a team like Iowa that is 11-2 and as good as they are. Some of these other teams that could be ranked that aren't ranked right now for one reason or another...none of that make any difference...everybody is good. Iowa is very good and we've got a lot of things to be better at over the long haul, and we've also got things we've got to get better at in the short-term before we play that game. So, I'm not real good at the reflection part of it."
Associate Head Coach Tim Buckley
"Aaron White is one of those under the radar guys who has improved in so many areas, as a ballhandler, as a rebounder, as a shooter He is very athletic and long. Devyn Marble is kind of the same way and he has come in a developed into on of the better players in the Big Ten. He is a matchup problem for every team he faces because he is so versatile and can play three positions. Now they have added some good, tough, competitive freshman who have talent and skill and I think that has improved their program."
