Indiana coach Tom Crean discussed the loss of Verdell Jones III on Wednesday. Jones suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in the first round of the Big Ten tournament.
"We miss him. There's no way around it," Crean said. "He's a stabilizing force. He's grown up so much as a player, and was playing such excellent defense. He had a seven-rebound game at Minnesota. Those are paramount things, especially when you're playing a team like" New Mexico State.
