Indiana freshmen Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin have yet to be cleared to play by the NCAA and Tom Crean was asked to provide an update on their status following Thursday’s 86-57 exhibition win over Indiana Wesleyan.
The process of determining the eligibility for both players is still ongoing based on Crean’s comments.

Mosquera-Perea, who was in uniform, sat out against Indiana Wesleyan with a left foot injury that has hampered him for much of the summer and fall.
Jurkin, a native of the Sudan, played 11 mi

2. Point guard Yogi Ferrell is going to be a big part of Indiana's success (or lack thereof) this season....
Maurice Creek scored 12 points and four other Hoosiers reached double figures as No. 1 Indiana routed Indiana Wesleyan 86-57 in Thursday night's exhibition game.
It's the only exhibition game Indiana plays this season. The Hoosiers open the regular season next Friday against Bryant.
For Creek, it was his first game action since Jan. 15, 2011, when he was diagnosed with...
Thoughts on a 86-57 win over the Wildcats:
I. It was enough that Maurice Creek, for all his body’s endured (broken knee caps and a torn Achilles), even stepped out onto the Assembly Hall court this evening. But after the warm reception from the IU faithful which included a quick chant of his name upon checking in, Creek scored to tie the game. He hit a three to give Indiana its...

Getting two weeks to prepare for what essentially becomes a play-in game for the Big Ten Championship, Wisconsin has used its bye week to get healthy and get a head start in its preparation for the Indiana Hoosiers.
