Hat-tip to the Hoosier Scoop, which tells us that according to a Twitter post from Tom Crean, the NCAA Clearinghouse has cleared Maurice Creek to play this season. It doesn't seem that there was much concern on the part of the staff that it wouldn't happen, but this is important news for the program. As I have said before, it's impossible to know how good IU will be this year. It's possible for the Hoosiers to dramatically improve on their performance without significantly improving their record. Nevertheless, any hypothetical involving postseason play depends upon Creek, one of IU's two most highly-rated recruits, suiting up. That will happen. Whew.
