Indiana coach Tom Crean joined SiriusXM’s “Inside College Basketball” show Tuesday evening and talked to Jeff Goodman and Bruce Pearl about the suspensions of Peter Jurkin and Hanner Mosquera-Perea.
His comments are below.
On the facts of the case, specifically Mark Adams being labeled a booster for donations from 1986-1992: “The facts are pretty self-explanatory when you...
No. 1 Indiana enters Friday’s opener against Bryant with a thin frontcourt as a result of an injury to Derek Elston and suspensions to Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin. But those setbacks haven’t put a damper on the team’s excitement to tip off the season.
After earning preseason accolades, gracing magazine covers and having countless pieces written by the national media...
Early this evening, the NCAA and Indiana released separate press releases on the status of Peter Jurkin and Hanner Mosquera-Perea. The NCAA has ruled the players must each sit nine games and donate money to charity.
Here’s IU’s release:
Calling Indiana University’s corrective actions “substantial and meaningful,” the NCAA on October 31, 2012, ac- cepted as secondary a...
Indiana has been selected as the preseason No. 1 by Sports Illustrated and the magazine has selected Cody Zeller for one of its four regional covers for this week’s issue.
Here’s the complete release from Sports Illustrated:
(NEW YORK – Nov. 6, 2012) – This is the season Indiana basketball fans have been waiting for. The talented and experienced Hoosiers begin the season...
Indiana's Cody Zeller is back, and he's bigger and better than ever.
The preseason All-American has grown one-half inch and added 10 to 15 pounds of muscle. He's worked on his 3-point shot and hopes to include that in this season's repertoire, too, after not attempting a 3 all last season.
And he's the biggest reason the Hoosiers are ranked No. 1 as they head...
Two freshmen on Indiana’s #1 ranked basketball team, 6’8″ forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea and 7’0″ center Peter Jurkin, have each been suspended nine games by the NCAA. Why? Their former AAU coach/legal guardian donated $185 to Indiana 20 years ago, and apparently the NCAA counts that as receiving impermissible benefits. I’m not joking.
The NCAA has agreed to reinstate two Indiana freshmen basketball players after they serve nine-game suspensions and repay a portion of the impermissible benefits they received before arriving on campus.
Hanner Mosquera-Perea must pay back $1,590 to a charity of his choice. Jurkin will be required to repay $250 to a charity of his choice. Both players will miss the first nine games...
It was announced earlier this evening that two freshman of the Indiana basketball team, Hanner Mosquera-Perera and Peter Jurkin, have received suspensions by the NCAA after receiving impermissible benefits from a person the NCAA determined to be a Hoosiers booster and must now both sit out 9 games to start the season.
Mosquera-Perera and Jurkin must also pay $1,590 and $250...
Who has the stronger conference in 2012? SEC football or Big 10 basketball?
When you think of 2012 college football, first thing that comes to mind has to be the SEC Conference. They’re considered the powerhouse conference in all of collegiate football. In the recent AP Top 25 poll, the SEC has four teams ranked in the top ten and seven teams ranked altogether. Those teams are...
With last Thursday’s game against Indiana Wesleyan not hitting the Big Ten Network until Wednesday, the inaugural Film Session comes a little late this season. Onwards.
Indiana Wesleyan got off to a hot start against Indiana last Thursday thanks to an early barrage of open 3-point looks the Wildcats knocked down. A look at what went wrong for the Hoosiers defensively on three...
The Indiana Hoosiers Cody Zeller could end up achieving the same trifecta as Anthony Davis at Kentucky did last year. The Wildcats big man from Chicago won a national title, took home the college basketball player of the year award, and became the first overall pick in the NBA Draft.
Zeller may do the same this year. For those who do some online betting, the Hoosiers are the favorite...
Jordan Hulls walks into Assembly Hall wearing a T-shirt that reads "How Sweet It Is," a phrase intended to celebrate Indiana's return to the NCAA tournament regional semifinals last spring.
This fall, those words have a whole new meaning.
After spending three years in the abyss and another year trying to prove themselves, the Hoosiers are ranked No. 1 and squarely...
Indiana senior Christian Watford, sophomore Cody Zeller, associate head coach Tim Buckley and coach Tom Crean met with the media Thursday to preview Friday’s season opener at Assembly Hall with Bryant.
Watch and listen to all three press conferences in the embedded media players below:
Indiana safety Mark Murphy wears his favorite Packers jersey every Sunday in Bloomington, and Hoosiers quarterback Cameron Coffman still owns a Cheesehead.
While Badgers fans may not know their names yet, Packers fans almost certainly will remember their fathers.
Murphy's dad, also Mark, is Green Bay's president and CEO. Coffman's father, Paul, was an All-Pro tight...
