Crean hires IU all-time leading scorer Cheaney to join staff


Indiana Hoosiers head coach Tom Crean has had a tough time at the once-proud basketball school trying to get it back on track.

The fallout from NCAA violations involving former coach Kelvin Sampson has hampered the program and Crean has not been able to post a winning record in three seasons.

But Crean, a hard worker, is bringing back a fan-favorite and the school’s and Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer as part of his staff.

Tom Izzo says no to Cavaliers; James’ future primary reason

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cleveland Cavaliers are left with Plan B whether it be Byron Scott, Kelvin Sampson or Mike Woodson.

Plan B comes into play because Michigan State head basketball coach Tom Izzo turned down a chance to double his salary and possibly coach LeBron James in the NBA, choosing to stick with the Spartans to chase NCAA championships.

Izzo told members of the media at a Tuesday press conference that being unable to speak with James played a part in his life and career-altering decision.

For the past week and a half, Izzo has been trying to decide whether to leave the university that has been his home since 1983 and jump to the NBA to perhaps make $6 million dollars, a raise of $3 million that he’s being paid now and potentially coach one of the best basketball players in the world, LeBron James.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was persistent in trying to lure Tom Izzo to Cleveland. Sources have said that Gilbert was going to give Izzo a five-year $30-million contract but Izzo has said he had no contract offer and they only talked about parameters.

This past season, Izzo led Michigan State to the Final Four for the sixth time in 12 years. Only the late John Wooden of UCLA and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski also have accomplished the feat.

Coach Izzo has a chance to get back to the Final Four once again as he only loses Raymar Morgan out of his top five players.
