1. HOOSIERS HQ
The team Tom Crean thought he had re-emerged to whip Iowa in the Big Ten Tournament, Mike writes.

IU came together and put together a filibuster in the nation’s capital to delay the demise of its NCAA hopes, I wrote.

Indiana’s Michael Hixon won the 1-meter diving event at the NCAA Zone C meet Thursday, we reported.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Missouri appears to be in wait-and-see mode with Indiana’s Tom Crean, Ron Davis of the Columbia Missourian writes.

Indications are the Missouri coaching search remains centered on Tom Crean, who has plenty of ties to the job, and Cal coach/former Purdue player Cuonzo Martin, Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes.

Tom Crean denied reports of mutual interest between himself and Missouri, Gregg Doyel and Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star reported.

At least for a night, Indiana looked the part of a contender again, Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star writes.

The shots went down and the intensity went up for the Hoosiers against Iowa, Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

Better late than never for Indiana to play up to its potential, Greg Gottfried of the Indiana Daily Student writes.

The November versions of both Indiana and Iowa resurfaced in Thursday’s Big Ten Tournament game, Mark Emmert of the Des Moines Register writes.

Wisconsin hopes to regain some of the momentum it has lost when the Badgers play Indiana today, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes.

Three key storylines for the Hoosiers against the Badgers, Alex Bozich of Inside the Hall writes.

Kevin Wilson denied any wrongdoing at Indiana in his first public comments since leaving IU and being hired at Ohio State, Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch writes.

  1. Listened to the clip of Bob Knight’s extended tantrum on Dan Patrick’s show. What a little man. Wishing death on the people who fired him. My indifference to ever seeing him at Assembly Hall again is bottomless.

  2. This Purdue/Michigan game is a good one.

    On a side note, are Matt Painter and Tom Crean the Bill Paxon and Bill Pullman of college basketball?

  3. Speaking of Purdue, long will that fan base put up with the mediocrity that is Matt Painter. Sure he wins a Big title every 4 to 5 years but his tournament record isn’t great. Here IU fans are ready to run Crean after winning 2 Big titles in 4 years and a couple of Sweet 16 appearances. Yet the last time PU was in the Sweet 16 was 2010. I guess with very little history mediocrity reigns supreme.
