Tom Crean cries when asked about Verdell Jones III’s knee injury (Video)
Coming off of three straight losing seasons under Tom Crean, the Indiana Hoosiers finally have their swag back. They are comfortably in the NCAA Tournament and are competing for the Big Ten Tournament championship. However, senior guard Verdell Jones III may have played his last game for the Hoosiers. During Indiana’s 75-58 victory over Penn State on Thursday, Jones went down with a knee injury that Crean described as “not good.” As you can see from the video that the Big Ten Network (via Business Insider) shared with us, Crean was shaken up about the injury after the game.
Some people will view this as phoniness, but I have no problem with it. There’s nothing tougher in college basketball than being a senior and having to miss your last shot at a National Championship because of an injury. Crean feels for Jones, and I don’t blame him.
