The Indiana athletics department posted some comments from coach Tom Crean and guard Maurice Creek about Friday’s season opening practice on iuhoosiers.com. Here’s what they said.
On the overall impressions of the practice:
“I thought our guys, the anticipation of getting here, were phenomenal and sometimes when you have that you lose your wind or you lose your intensity at some point and time early in the practice and that never happened. Our fatigue level is something our guys really worked hard to get over today, I thought we went extremely hard, but I thought we also were very competitive more importantly. There was a lot of efficiency inside the practice, the good news is there is a lot of room for growth and the players are good enough to reach it and that is exciting.”
On getting the opportunity to show a practice to a national audience:
“I think it’s great for our fans, I think it’s great for recruiting. It’s an honor. ESPN is about ratings and they wouldn’t be in a situation where they would come to a school that wasn’t going to draw some ratings. I think it was phenomenal. It was an absolute honor to have ESPNU here, to have Dan, Jay and Bram here and their whole crew and I thought our players never reacted or did anything where they played to the camera. They’re used to big crowds and they are used to attention.”
On being able to come back full go for a practice for the first time in 20 months:
“It felt pretty good to be able to come out with the guys and get a feel of the game again. I feel like we went long and hard and I’m ready to give my body an ice bath and relax a little bit.
On your strong shooting performance:
“I knew I had to have a quick release with the athletes we have on this team and with the tempo that we play. I focused on that and it felt really good today.
