    Re: Indiana set to hire Tom Crean

    Per Inside the Hall:

    The buzz this evening is that former Ball State head coach Tim Buckley will follow Tom Crean to Indiana and become the top assistant to the new head coach. Buckley was originally on Crean’s staff at Marquette before coaching at Ball State for six seasons. Buckley then went to Iowa as an assistant to Steve Alford before returning to Marquette.

    Buckley’s most notable moment as a head coach came in 2001 when he led Ball State to wins over Kansas and UCLA in the Maui Invitational. As an assistant coach at Marquette, he played a big part in bringing Dwyane Wade to Milwaukee. His strong mid-western ties should bode well for recruiting the Big Ten.

    Buckley was a horrible head coach, but a lot of great assistant coaches can't make that transition. Likely a very good pickup for Crean's staff.

    I see Xavier just nabbed Holloway. Nice.

    I don't think Crean will miss him long.

    I'll be surprised if Ebanks doesn't end up in Memphis. Crean definitely has a tough road ahead.

    sad part is that all of this is self inflicted. With the NCAA violations hanging over their head it also makes recruiting tough in the short term. At this point IU needs closure more than anything.

    From the Herald-Times blog.


    Amid reports that Terrell Holloway has signed with Xavier, the other former Indiana commit who escaped his scholarship has set up visits to the four schools he is now considering.

    Devin Ebanks, a 6-9 high-scoring wing out of New York City, will begin his visits this weekend with a trip to West Virginia. He’ll play in the Jordan Brand Classic all-star game a week later, then take weekend trips to Texas, then Rutgers before ending his tour on May 9 with a visit to the campus of the national runner-up, Memphis.

    He plans on making a decision shortly after that visit.

    Though Ebanks has been in contact with new Indiana coach Tom Crean, it looks like a re-commitment to Indiana is unlikely. Sources in New York say that Ebanks has been scared off by the unstable situation in Bloomington.

    His AAU coach, Lawrence McGugins, said that Ebanks still loves the Indiana fans and appreciates the history of the university.

    “It’s really just a shame what happened there,” he said. “This isn’t a fun process for us. There were a lot of strong ties there. But you only really get one chance to get this right, and we need to do what’s best.”

    Ebanks was the highest ranked of Indiana’s 2008 recruits (Rivals considers him the No. 13 player in the country) and was expected to fill part of scoring void left by the departures of D.J. White and Eric Gordon.

    Indiana’s incoming class is now down to forward Tom Pritchard and guard Matt Roth, neither of whom are ranked by Rivals.com.

    He'll get to do exactly what he wants at Memphis. Run up and down the court, shoot the ball whenever he wants, and never play a lick of D.

    Because Crean would have forced him to become a complete player. He won't have to put that work in at Memphis.

    Look familiar?

    Good points. I should spend a few posts letting everyone know how overrated Ebanks really is and how he'd be a terrible fit at IU anyway. Good riddance to him, for sure.

    Yeah. Who wants the #13 rated prospect in the country. We got JUCOs and walk-ons better than him!

    Yeah, who needs him. Crean needs to start recruiting floor slappers by golly.

    Rumor has it Armon Bassett is shooting jumpers at the Hall with Tom Crean. Interesting.

    Re: Indiana set to hire Tom Crean

    I would rather have 4 year players than a one year guy like Ebanks. We have had our one year player in Gordon and honestly he was good but not great and he always seemed to have one foot out the door. I want Crean to go after guys like Purdue has like Hummel or Johnson guys who will be there all four years.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
