Indiana's Tom Crean, Nebraska's Tim Miles exchange words

Thursday January 1st, 2015

Indiana coach Tom Crean and Nebraska coach Tim Miles exchanged words during Wednesday's game at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb.

After Nebraska guard Tai Webster fouled Indiana forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea in the second half, Crean appeared to point and shout something in Miles direction. 

The two coaches walked toward each other before meeting near midcourt, where an official had to restrain Miles as he screamed in Crean's face. While Miles fumed, Crean stood with his hands on his waist before turning and walking away. 

After the game, Crean reportedly said that he did not tell Miles to "shut up," even though video footage may have suggested otherwise. Miles, meanwhile, reportedly said that he did not recall whether Crean told him to "shut up."
