Tom Crean takes high road in altercation wtih Maryland fan

Tom Crean takes high road in altercation wtih Maryland fan

WASHINGTON -- Indiana left their postseason fate in the hands of the NCAA Tournament Selection committee following their 70-60 loss to Wisconsin in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament at Verizon Center. 

The Hoosiers have made four of the last five NCAA Tournaments and have reached the Sweet Sixteen three times. But head coach Tom Crean's seat remains as hot as ever, a notion not lost on fans in attendance Friday night. 

As Crean exited the court on Friday, a fan in a Maryland shirt berated the nine-year Hoosiers head coach. "You ruined the program," the man shouted.

After briefly exchanging words with the fan, Crean simply pointed him out to security and eventually continued to the locker room. 

It was an ironic phrase to shout considering Crean was involved in an alteration with a Michigan assistant coach in 2014, yelling "You helped wreck our program."

The assistant coach in question was Jeff Meyer, who was an assistant at Indiana when Kelvin Sampson was the focus of an NCAA investigation that led to the program's steep decline.

Crean did not comment on the incident following the game.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.
