Going west

Indiana coach Tom Crean discussed going out to Portland for the NCAA tournament.

"At Marquette, we were sent to the west coast for Thursday games. I have never not been involved where it wasn't a Thursday in all the NCAA Tournaments that we played in. As a staff, we're almost used to that, that's OK. Portland's a great place.

"I have not seen the Rose Garden, but a couple of our guys have been there. Calbert Cheaney has played in it. Watching games of it, it looks like just a spectacular place. It looks like the crowd support when the Trail Blazers play is phenomenal and I don't think it will be any different.

"I don't think it would have got the spot if they weren't looking forward to having great support. It's a great basketball area, it's a great sports area. It is a long ways away, hopefully our fans can travel. I know our west coast fans will be excited about that and hopefully a lot of our Midwest fans, hopefully some of our Indiana Hoosier nation fans can get out there. We are going to need all the support we can get."
