Tom Crean has developed a reputation for poor sportsmanship. After his team captured the Big Ten Championship at the Crisler Center earlier this month, Crean and Michigan assistant coach Jeff Meyer engaged in an argument after shaking hands. The dust up centered on Crean’s allegation that Meyer, who was an assistant coach during Kelvin Sampson’s scandal plagued tenure with Indiana, helped wreck the program.

Anyways, Crean’s team got thrashed by Syracuse in Washington last night. Indiana’s coach, a brother in-law of the Harbaugh bros,  chose to breeze by Jim Boeheim with a quick shake and head for the exits during the post game handshakes. Classy.

Crean does shake Boeheim’s hand, albeit for .0003 seconds before heading out. He has a history.
