There were a few different media availability opportunities involving Indiana on Monday, including the Big Ten teleconference, availability with assistant coach Tim Buckley and a couple players, and Tom Crean’s weekly radio show. Here are some of the highlights.
· Injury updates: There really weren’t any, at least as far as they concern Maurice Creek and Derek Elston. Crean said on his radio show that both are practicing and Creek has participated in more 5-on-0 drills, but there is still not timetable for his return from a foot injury. Elston was expected to be ready to play Saturday against Minnesota, but he never entered the game and Crean has kind of been vague when talking about him. It’s unclear whether Elston is sitting out due to a lingering injury or because of performance-based concerns.
· How bad was Indiana’s second half on Saturday?: Not very, if you’re asking Crean.
“We didn’t play as bad as we were led to believe in the second half,” Crean said on his radio show.

This isn’t the same Indiana team that had lost 10 consecutive games to the Badgers. This team was supposed...

Watch and listen to their comments in the embedded media player below:
Well that first half was difficult to watch. At the very least I was hoping for the Gophers to be competitive against Indiana and keep it close in order to justify their top 10 ranking. Sort of like if Mississippi or Miami was suddenly ranked in the top 10 I'd be quite skeptical and expect them to not be able to hang with the truly elite teams, I am guessing many felt the...
First place in the Big Ten is on the line when Wisconsin comes to Assembly Hall on Tuesday. Can the Hoosiers stay on top?
Fresh off its big win against No. 8 Minnesota, Indiana look to keep its momentum going when it takes on the plucky Badgers, who are coming off a huge victory against Illinois of their own.

It was pretty for one half and ugly for a good part of the other, but the No. 5 Hoosiers withstood a rally from No. 8 Minnesota on Saturday afternoon to prevail 88-81 and moved to 15-1 and 3-0 in the Big Ten.
