John Harbaugh attends Terps-Indiana game to support brother-in-law, Tom Crean

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh stands among Hoosiers fans during the first half.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh strolled into the Xfinity Center about an hour before tipoff Wednesday night, taking a seat behind the Indiana bench. His brother-in-law is Hoosiers coach Tom Crean.

"It's like Tom said, I love my sister [Joan] and Tom's married to my sister," Harbaugh said.


Harbaugh has been to Maryland games over his seven years in Baltimore, typically sitting in the seats belonging to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, who was one of the basketball team's biggest supporters when Gary Williams was the coach.

"He probably wouldn't have let me sit in those seats [rooting for Indiana]," Harbaugh said.


Harbaugh didn't wear the crimson-and-cream colors of the Hoosiers; he dressed in a neutral gray warmup jacket.

"I wore Under Armour, I figure Kevin [Plank] will be happy," Harbaugh said.

The last time he saw the Hoosiers in person was a couple of years ago, when Indiana was crushed by Syracuse in the NCAA East Regional at Verizon's Center in Washington, D.C.

"That stifling 2-3 zone," Harbaugh said.

Harbaugh said that Crean told him that "Maryland matches up better with Indiana than Indiana matches up with Maryland."
