Men's soccer defeats Maryland in overtime

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - A men's soccer player and a coach joked after IU's 2-1 overtime win against Maryland Friday that when no one else can score a goal, just "dial 1-800-BACK."

In the 77th minute, defensive back David Prall knocked in his first career goal off another Mack corner kick. Defensive midfielder Justin Tauber, a senior, also assisted on the goal.


Transcript of Knight press conference

Coach Bob Knight: Who'd we beat or who'd we lose to? You might understand, I hope you'll understand, this very thing, the reason why you're here right now, is the reason why i'm not teaching a class, it's the reason why i'm not doing the tip-off lunch, it's the reason why i'm not going to put myself in a position where this kind of thing can happen.

Freshman alleges Knight assault

Coach Bob Knight never stops teaching. He said that's exactly what he was doing when he grabbed freshman Kent Harvey's right arm about 2 p.m. Thursday in Assembly Hall. Harvey's stepfather, Mark Shaw, said the incident was more than a lesson in manners - it was a unwarranted assault.

No position on the football team might have benefited more from the Hoosiers' 11-day training camp in Marshall, Ind., than the offensive line.


Team travels to Maryland, competes in classic

Before the season began and Purdue disposed of Central Michigan last Saturday by a 48-0 count, Boilermaker coach Joe Tiller outlined the central key to any success Purdue will have this year. Not surprisingly, it involves quarterback Drew Brees.
