Eyeing IU


Crean on Evansville

Indiana travels to Evansville on Wednesday. Here are IU men's basketball coach Tom Crean's thoughts on the contest:

"We are really looking forward to get a chance to play in the new Ford Center,"

Crean said. "It's going to be a great environment for us to play in. We will

face a sellout crowd and they are coming off a big win. The IU fans in that

area have always been very supportive and it would not surprise me to see a lot

of fans from Washington there either.

"Winning on the road certainly is a step that this group of guys knows it needs

if it hopes to reach our goals.

"A lot of the players on both teams are very familiar with one another. Colt

Ryan really stepped up his game last year, but they have a number of guys who

can hurt you. They are an experienced and veteran team that will take advantage of any opportunity you give them."
