Here's what Loyola of Maryland coach Jimmy Patsos said after his team beat Indiana 72-67 Tuesday.
"Please understand what a special person and a great coach you have (in Tom Crean)," he said. "He left a good situation to come to a great situation. He's young and he's doing it the right way. That's going to pay off in the long run. We were very lucky to be here and very lucky to win.
"…It's special to play against a Big Ten team too, because they're kind of physical. That press in the second half, I can't replicate that in practice or in game or in a MAAC situation, whether it's Siena or the best team in our league. So that was good practice for us. This place is really loud, and we were lucky. We made a million lucky shots in the first half. There were about eight of them that I was screaming to get back on defense but they went in. So sometimes you get lucky."
