After Indiana won its first outright Big Ten regular-season title since 1993 with a 72-71 win over Michigan, Tom Crean decided to confront Jeff Meyer. Meyer is a current assistant with Michigan and was previously an assistant coach at Indiana during Kelvin Sampson's controversial time with the program. It's hard to say what exactly went down, but Crean clearly tracked Meyer down at the end of the game and yelled, among other things, "you know what you held up the program." After the game, Crean did not elaborate on the altercation.

Crean was photographed being restrained by an Indiana staffer.

He was asked about the incident after the game, and offered very little comment.

"It's a heated game," Crean told reporters. "Go ask him."

Crean took over the program after Sampson was forced to resign when the NCAA accused he and his staff of four major NCAA violations for making more than 100 "impermissible phone calls to recruits."
