Apparently, Crean is now telling his guys to flop and act like they get hit by elbows to draw a flagrant foul. Late in the Minnesota game, where Crean was outcoached again, the camera caught Crean telling his players to watch for the elbows and sure enough after the timeout Sheehy fell to the floor trying sell being hit by an elbow. As a fan of Purdue and the game of basketball, I cant stress how much this bothers me because of how much Purdue has been screwed by this rule. It literally cost Purdue the Villanova game. Gave MSU all the momentum in the first game too, if I recall correctly.
I hope Crean receives so much heat for this that he doesnt resort to this again as its just not welcome in the game. Try hard, play hard, but dont cheat hard.
