Not sure if any of you caught this (I know I didn’t), but apparently Indiana brought a fireman’s helmet to Saturday’s game at Minnesota. It was the job of one of the players at the end of the bench to bring it into the huddle at every timeout.
Assistant coach Tim Buckley was asked about it Monday when he filled in for Tom Crean on the Big Ten teleconference. He said it was the first time the Hoosiers had used “that particular prop” but that it it was part of a recurring theme the Hoosiers had discussed throughout the season. However, he said he would leave it up to Crean to disclose the theme itself.
Joe Boncore, Moses Abraham’s guardian, confirmed that Indiana has offered the 6-foot-9, 235-pounder a scholarship and that Abraham is trying to set up a visit to Bloomington for Thursday’s game against Wisconsin. The only hold-up could be a randomly scheduled game, Boncore said.
“We’re trying,” Boncore said. “As an independent school, they pick up games in the last minute. This is Prince Georges county. It’s like the hotbed of basketball here. Teams and games pop up in the last minute at obscure gyms. Right now it’s looking like that. We’re trying to make the Wisconsin game.”
Boncore confirmed that Indiana coach Tom Crean was at a game last week and offered a scholarship.
Moses Abraham, the 6-foot-9, 235-pound forward out of Tempe Hills, Md., will be visiting Indiana on Thursday, according to Scout.com’s Dave Telep (subscription required).
Abraham, a three-star prospect according to Scout and a four-star according to Rivals, was offered a scholarship by Indiana last week.
The story is that Tom Crean showed up in practice gear and took a private plane to see Abraham in person.
Abraham has offers from Georgetown, Arizona State, Florida, Tennesse, Texas, UCLA, Connecticut, Kansas State, Marquette, Maryland, Seton Hall and VCU.
Here is a YouTube clip with Abraham. He is wearing No. 12 in the black jersey.
Herald-Times photographer David Snodgress went inside the recently named Cook Hall last week and captured what the new basketball practice facility looks like.
Indiana University’s new basketball practice building next to Assembly Hall offers equal facilities for mens and womens teams, eliminating the need to share the single court in Assembly Hall and expanding training equipment.
A single wall divides the men’s (right) and women’s practice courts.
