Tom Crean really, really wanted Indiana to foul Wichita State sooner

Friday March 20th, 2015


Late in Indiana's game against Wichita State on Friday, the Hoosiers needed to get a foul and stop the clock. Tom Crean knew this, apparently better than his players did. 

An excruciating 13 seconds dripped off the clock between when the Shockers took possession and Indiana's Troy Williams finally fouled Ron Baker. Television cameras showed Crean desperately pleading his players to get a foul but they did not, not until 13 seconds disappeared.

Indiana ended up losing, 81-76.
