Kelvin Sampson and D.J. White address the media.

Sampson has read a short statement saying he’s aware of the NCAA statement of allegations and will make no further comment after tonight about them until after the NCAA’s process is complete.

Sampson said he never intentionally misled the NCAA investigators and he looks forward to working through the NCAA process.

He then refused to answer several questions about the allegation, saying he’ll only answer questions about tonight’s game.

Here’s one related question he did answer. He was asked what he thought about the reaction of fans tonight and said he didn’t notice it.

“We’re a family,” White said. “We stick together through anything.”

We’ve got a much larger contingent of media here than usual. Sampson is making an opening statement. He said that basketball is sometimes a game of breaks. He said that with 16 seconds left, IU needed a break with a travel call, or maybe that wouldn’t have even been a break. Sampson said he thought Brian Butch’s game-winning 3-pointer was going to bounce high off the backboard, but obviously it hit the right spot.

“Sometimes it’s better to be luckier than good,” Sampson said.

————–

Coach Ryan has finished and we’re waiting for Coach Sampson’s arrival in the press room.

————–

Ryan said that Wisconsin had mostly wide-open 3s in the first half. He said that rather than trying to take the Hoosiers out of the zone at the start of the game, he was fine with continuing to attack it.

————–

Ryan has acknowledged, by the way, that he didn’t diagram that final Butch bank shot. He gave the credit to forward Marcus Landry for driving like a guard to the basket to draw defenders before passing it out to Butch.

————–

We’ll have updates from the post-game press conference in a few minutes, as soon as Bo Ryan finishes up and Sampson enters.

There was a comment in an earlier post saying that the poster could not believe what he heard after the last 3-pointer. I don’t have BTN nor radio (out of state) so I missed that. What happened?

Asking a Fan to remove his Shirt because he had printed “Bring Back Bobby” we all should be embarassed that the University would ask someone to surpress their freedom of speech. It’s should not matter f you like Coach Kight or not, the fan has the right to express his feelings. I have seen far more offensive shirts and action in Assemble Hall than a fans shirt. The most offensive thing I ever saw in Assemble Hall was the behavior fans showed towards Shean May a few years ago. And yet the University failed to appoligize for the fans unsportsmanship.

I find it VERY offensive that someone would be so offended by someone wearing a “Bring Back Bobby” T-shirt, that they would force the person to take it off! They would have had to carry me out wearing cuffs and leg shackles!
