Hoosier Headlines for January 30, 2010: previews of the trip to Illinois.

 

  • Hoosiers thinking big (Post-Tribune)
    "After watching the Hoosiers outmanned and shoved around in a 58-43 home loss to Iowa last week, Crean said he is toying with the idea of utilizing a bigger lineup at Illinois today."

  • Hoosiers hoping practice pays off (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
    "The Hoosiers had a chance to work on different lineups after an awful rebounding performance (outrebounded 39-23). They had the chance to sharpen their shooting after failing to hit a three-pointer for the first time in 277 games. And they had a chance to figure out different ways to score after finishing with a season-low 43 points against the Hawkeyes."

  • Illini look to put ribbon on first half in Big Ten (Herald Review)
    "Bruce Weber liked what he saw from his Illini basketball team during their 77-67 victory at Penn State on Wednesday night. Now he'd like to see it again. And again. And again." Building consistency is what Illinois has been working for and one game with improved leadership, better defense and sharp shooting doesn't qualify as consistency in Weber's mind.

  • Crean wants Hoosiers to become tougher on the boards vs. Illini (Evansville Courier & Press)
    "Having seen his Hoosiers repeatedly beaten on the boards in the past month, Indiana University basketball coach Tom Crean has made it clear what today's priority will be at Illinois. He considers rebounding the key to victory in today's 1 p.m. game, which will be televised by ESPN2."

  • Blue bloods are falling on hard times (FOX Sports on MSN)
  • Indiana coach Tom Crean might switch from 3-guard sets at Illinois(The Courier-Journal)
    "Indiana University basketball coach Tom Crean is expected to shake up his rotations for the Hoosiers' game at Illinois on Saturday. That outcome could mean fewer three-guard combinations on the floor, and more of Christian Watford and Derek Elston alternating at the small forward position."

  • In the pink: Illinois faces Indiana (chicagotribune.com)
    "Actually, the pink-trimmed uniforms and all-pink shoes aren't intended for Indiana. Illinois is one of four teams around the country that will wear pink Saturday in honor of Coaches vs. Cancer Awareness weekend."

  • Indiana at Illini preview: It doesn't have to be pretty. (Hail to the Orange)
    "When last we saw the Hoosiers, Mike Tisdale was in the midst of his mid season renaissance, when he wasn't so worried about getting into foul trouble that he was still able to defend. And when he was able to destroy his opponents with his natural advantage of extreme height, reach and shooting. He took advantage of the Hoosiers to the tune of 27 points and 9 boards. If he can get his confidence back, I see no reason why he wont be able to do it again."

  • IU In-State Recruit Watch: Matt Carlino and Marquis Teague (The Hoosier Scoop)
    "Teague remained non-committal about his recruitment. He said he’s going to wait until the season is over, then make his decision. He hopes to commit before the summer. The list, he said, is still the same, including Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, Ohio State, Purdue and Cincinnati. Though Louisville and Kentucky are widely considered the favorites, IU is still hanging around despite the bumps in the rebuilding process."
