Roth update (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
"We're rehabilitating him and working on his strength and all those types of things like we would like to have him back (this year)," Crean said. "But it's totally going to be on what these future X-rays show when it's time for him to be evaluated again."
Crean on going on the road (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
"That's one of the scariest things for any team going on the road, to figure out how are we going to get to the line. Going against Ohio State, they have such good players, we'll prepare like Evan Turner is going to be out there."

"A lot of times it’s frustrating. Coming from high school where you were winning all the time … it’s hard to lose. We’re not used to losing. But we’re definitely on the right track. That’s what keeps us motivated every day, knowing that we’re going in the right direction, even if you can’t see it all the time."

Crean tweaking plays, practice (The Hoosier Scoop)
"Preparation at this time of year also goes through something of a metamorphosis. In conference play, teams know each other very well through years of experience. It’s a bit different in this case, because the conference hasn’t seen much of Indiana as it’s constituted, but at this point, there’s still enough film available for opponents to figure the Hoosiers out. So Crean and his staff are making some tweaks to make sure they’re not predictable."

"It's apparent the Buckeyes are struggling at both ends of the floor without Turner, a 6-foot-7 playmaker whom everyone besides William Buford needs to get good shots for themselves. Defensively, Turner is another long defender able to challenge shots and disrupt passing lanes, which the Buckeyes aren't doing well in his absence, either."
