Crean goes small, this time with 4 guards (The Indianapolis Star)
"Indiana coach Tom Crean has employed three-guard lineups consistently throughout the season, generally when he hasn't been happy with the production he has received from his frontcourt players. Saturday, he took it a step further. For the final seven minutes of the first half and a good portion of the second half, Crean went with four guards on the floor in Indiana's 81-58 loss to Minnesota at Williams Arena."
More trouble for struggling IU (The Indianapolis Star)
"Minnesota (16-10, 7-7 Big Ten), playing its second game in less than 48 hours, was good from inside and out against the Hoosiers. The Gophers made nine 3-point field goals, and held a commanding 38-16 advantage in the paint."

"After putting his big men on the bench, IU coach Tom Crean said he saw the ball movement he envisioned from what was planned to be a guard-heavy offensive attack."
Dumes goes off for Hoosiers (Indiana Daily Student)
"Dumes has had his ups and downs with IU the last two seasons, often shown by his shot selection. But to say he hasn’t been a key player for IU, at least during the Big Ten season, would be wrong."
