Hawkeyes host IU
(Reuters) Indiana’s chances to make the NCAA Tournament have been dwindling by the day but it hopes to take advantage of another stumbling Big Ten team when it pays a visit to Iowa on Tuesday. Four straight losses and six in the last seven games have severely jeopardized the Hoosiers’ chances to make the tourney, although an admirable effort at Minnesota the last time out has coach Tom Crean confident in a turnaround.
“I have complete belief that we will continue to get better,” Crean told reporters, after the tough 75-74 loss to the Golden Gophers on Wednesday. “We have just had a few too many situations where it comes down to one or two possessions and we don’t get it. But I have a tough group that is getting more tough-minded all the time and I totally believe in them.”
