Hoosier Headlines for March 11, 2010: Big Ten Tournament, day one.


  • Regular season in past, IU starts fresh at Big Ten Tournament (Indiana Daily Student)
    "IU’s body of work over the last nine weeks secured them the No. 10 seed in an 11-team conference tournament. It wasn’t a pretty season and certainly IU is not expected to make many waves up the road in Indianapolis. But a 30-game season ended last weekend and a new one begins today for the Hoosiers."

  • IU focuses on deep ball in third meeting with Northwestern (Indiana Daily Student)
    "But there’s one thing IU knows Northwestern won’t change when the two teams play in the Big Ten Tournament’s first round at 5 p.m. Thursday: its volume of 3-point attempts."

  • Quick turnaround could pose problems for Hoosiers (Indiana Daily Student)
    "And while common sense might say playing an opponent twice within one week is good for IU — especially since the Hoosiers will have a hometown crowd in Indianapolis — a quick rematch hasn’t always worked in the past."

  • Creek sees Indiana's future (The Courier-Journal)
    "The frustrations of watching his Indiana University teammates lose game after game caught up with injured freshman guard Maurice Creek last Wednesday night following a loss at Purdue. As his teammates shuffled into the locker room at Mackey Arena, Creek sat down in a chair, put his head in his hands and began to cry."

  • Jeremy Nash taking responsibility as Northwestern’s senior leader (Chicago Tribune)
    "I felt like it was my fault," Nash said. "I should have been more aggressive and made sure guys followed him after he hit his first couple of 3s. It's kind of personal now, and I don't plan on letting it happen again in the tournament."

  • Questions heading into the Big Ten Tournament ( Hoosiers Insider | The Indianapolis Star)
    "This much I know for sure. McLeod's dismissal had nothing to do with NCAA problems or compliance issues. All Crean has said on the issue publically is that it was something that needed to happen immediately moving forward."

  • Crean: Trust, loyalty important for next assistant coach (Inside the Hall)
    "The second-year coach was also asked about the dismissal of assistant coach Roshown McLeod, who has yet to speak publicly but plans to do so in the coming days via a press release."
