IU looks to rebound in final home game

Fresh off a heartbreaking loss to Miami (Ohio) for the Midwest Collegiate Hockey League conference championship, the hockey team plays host to its final home series of the season against Chicago's Robert Morris College at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday at the Frank Southern Center.

Team hits road for fourth week

For the fourth consecutive week, the women's tennis team will take to the road. Protecting their 7-2 record, the Hoosiers will travel for a clash with Tennessee 11 a.m. Sunday.

Hoosiers rested, ready for Racers

The men's tennis team had its four-match winning streak broken last weekend at Minnesota, dropping the team out of the Top 25. But, with a win Monday against Brown, the No. 31 Hoosiers are looking to start a new streak.

Team looking to repeat Big Ten feat

The women's track and field team won't win this year's indoor Big Ten championships with 150 points like it did last year, coach Randy Heisler said. The Hoosiers will likely win more than the one event they did last year, but they won't win the meet by 38 points like last year.

Team to count on veterans at meet

Throughout the season, the men's indoor track team has shown signs of promise and has left talented opponents in its dust. This weekend, the men's Indoor Big Ten Championships present something different for the Hoosiers.

Hoosiers, Badgers trying to climb in standings

Time is starting to run out on the IU men's basketball season. With three conference games and only one guaranteed Big Ten tournament game, each battle grows exponentially in importance.

Senior looking to win back-to-back crowns

Jenn Brown stepped in for track coach Randy Heisler last week while his wife recovered from a seizure and surgery to remove a brain tumor. In Heisler's absence, Brown guided her teammates to season-best throws at Saturday's Hoosier Hills invite.

Illini fend off Hoosiers in final minutes

Bright lights shined through a darkened Assembly Hall Thursday as seniors Rainey Alting and Rachael Honegger, and the rest of the Hoosiers, were introduced in the final home game of the season.

Honegger plays

Senior basketball player Rachael Honegger was allowed to play her final game in Assembly Hall Thursday night, after serving a five-game suspension for pleading guilty to forgery. Thursday's 54-50 loss against Illinois was the final home game of the 2000-01 season for the Hoosiers. Honegger did not speak to the press after the game, but did address the crowd during the ceremonies honoring the two IU seniors.

Honegger might get to play today

Until Wednesday, senior basketball player Rachael Honegger had little hope she would be allowed to play during her last game in Assembly Hall today. Honegger has been suspended from playing since Feb. 7, when athletics director Clarence Doninger sidelined her pending investigation into her guilty plea to forgery.

Team to battle Illini on Senior Night

Senior Night is always special. But with an NCAA Tournament berth and a first-round bye at the Big Ten tournament on the line, tonight's game cannot be much more important.

Hoosiers look to rebuild tradition

The men's swimming and diving team has experienced some inconsistencies this year. This weekend it will face its biggest test -- the Big Ten Championships at the University of Minnesota. There, the team hopes to redeem this season's disappointments in a good showing in the conference's most important meet.

Spartans get their revenge

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Junior center Kirk Haston is the leading scorer in the Big Ten and the Hoosiers' go-to man. He's interim head coach Mike Davis' choice for Big Ten Player of the Year and one of the top post players in the conference. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo recruited Haston and called him the most improved player this season. But it takes more than one man to defeat No. 5 Michigan State, especially when he's playing with four fouls and held scoreless for the last 19 minutes of regulation.

Team signs 4 state player-of-the-year recruits

Four high school seniors -- all players of the year in their respective states -- have signed letters of intent with the IU men's soccer team, coach Jerry Yeagley said.

Center's play hurts Hoosiers

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State freshman center Zach Randolph won the Class 4-A IHSAA state championship at Marion High School last year, but his friend, IU freshman forward Jared Jeffries, won the Mr. Basketball award. Apparently, that didn't sit well with Randolph. He banged, bruised and muscled his way to 14 points against Jeffries and the Hoosiers in Michigan State's 66-57 victory Tuesday.

Hoosiers survive Wildcat comeback

Tuesday's baseball game started the home season off with a bang for IU. On the first pitch of the first inning, redshirt freshman Mark Calkins drove a home run over the center field fence. "I just saw a good pitch and hit it well," Calkins said. "I wasn't trying to hit a home run. I was just trying to get on base."

Former standouts going pro

When women's soccer player Wendy Dillinger graduated from IU in 1998, she played in soccer leagues across the country and competed in Europe, but the hope of a professional soccer league in the U.S. was a distant hope. With the formation of the Women's United Soccer Association, Dillinger's hope is becoming a reality.

Hoosiers looking for sweep

There is no question men's basketball interim head coach Mike Davis has his heart set on postseason play, and time is running out to get there. There are four games left in the regular season, and if Davis wants to reach 19 wins, the Hoosiers must win three of them. But with No. 5 Michigan State, Wisconsin and intra-state rival Purdue left on the schedule, Davis said the Hoosiers are entering the toughest part of the season. The Spartans are first on the list. The Hoosiers (16-10, 7-5 Big Ten) will face Michigan State (20-3, 9-3) at 7 p.m. in the Breslin Center in East Lansing, Mich.

Little 500 practice begins

Serene rides through campus and the streets of Bloomington seemed distant memories for many first-year Little 500 riders as Rookie Week started Monday at Bill Armstrong Stadium. "I was riding next to a girl who wasn't very vocal, and she actually touched the girl's bike in front of her and almost fell," said sophomore Alpha Delta Pi rider Lauren Moore. "Everybody kind of stopped to miss her. I was scared because I didn't know what way she might fall." Riders bumping into each other is a part of the race. Moore said she has seen the scrapes and bruises on her teammates. Rookie Week is designed to limit serious injuries to riders.

Pitchers seek stability

To say the Hoosiers are looking for a little more stability in their pitching staff after giving up a school-record 49 runs in three games last weekend against Furman would be an understatement. And the Hoosiers have one day off to try to find that stability before they face Indiana Wesleyan at 3 p.m. today at Sembower Field.
