Crean addresses Elston, Bawa (The Hoosier Scoop)
"We’ve gotta have a lot more out of our five position," Crean said. "We’re really searching to figure what’s going to help us, and we’re looking for some consistent measures right there, and at the same time I look at it, we’ve gotta get Derek Elston more minutes. He’s had a couple of tough situations where we played four guards against Ohio State, we played four guards against Michigan. So it makes it harder for him. He’s not ready to defend those type of people yet the way we have to defend him. But we’ve still gotta get him on the court because he’s capable of getting rebounds."

"When coach Tom Crean says he is "encouraged," it's not bull. The team GPA after the first semester was 3.06; and while that won't mean much Thursday at Michigan, it suggests a work ethic and understanding that bodes well for on-court success. So if you can warp, say, future Jordan Hulls into current Jordan Hulls, if you can fast-forward Maurice Creek's healing time (the freshman guard returned for the first time after last month's surgery to repair a fractured knee), if you can accelerate the development of all the Hoosiers, you've got something special. Until then, well, these next two months look awfully rough."
