College basketball: Indiana No. 1 in preseason AP Poll
Tom Crean didn’t look like any of the other people in the Maui airport that day.
He had just coached his third, fourth and fifth games in his first season at Indiana. He looked how you would expect a coach to look after losing games by 38 and 26 points, then managing to beat Division-II Chaminade in the seventh-place game of the Maui Invitational by only two points. The Silverswords got off a possible game-winning 3-point attempt at the buzzer.
Others waiting for flights to the mainland on the day before Thanksgiving in 2008 were wearing leis and carefully carrying pineapples. Not Crean.
