Rookie riders prepare for race

Anybody who has competed in the Little 500 knows riding a bike in winter-like conditions is challenging. For the next two weeks, rookie riders will experience just how difficult it is to prepare for the Little 500 and stay warm at the same time. "Riding in the cold stinks. Especially when it rains," said senior Alan Ireland, a Delta Sigma Pi rider and member of the men's riders council. "Some people are able to do it easier than others."

Illini depth overcomes Hoosiers

Interim head coach Mike Davis put it bluntly: "Illinois is just a better basketball team than we are," he said after Saturday's 67-61 loss to Illinois at Assembly Hall. There's no mystery to why the Hoosiers lost -- the No. 7 Illini are stronger, deeper and more experienced than the Hoosiers.

MSU divers capture competition

A story written about the diving at the Big Ten Women's Swimming and Diving Championship this weekend would essentially be a story about the divers from Michigan State. MSU's Summer Mitchell placed first in the 1-meter and third in the 3-meter and teammate Carly Weiden finished third in the 1-meter competition and won the 3-meter.

Michigan Big Ten's best

Claire Tousley of Zionsville said her mom decided it would be a good idea to take her to the Women's Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championships. Tousley, an elementary school student and swimmer, said she likes going fast. Tousley was likely smiling Saturday night, the final night of the three-day event. She did get to see quick swimming -- IU raced to a third-place finish, Penn State jumped to a quick lead but couldn't swim fast enough to hold on for the win and Michigan took the title.

Sitting pretty after day one

The first race of the finals in the 2001 Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championships might serve as an omen for the Hoosiers. Or at least they hope. The Hoosiers won two events, putting them behind only Michigan after day one of the three-day event at Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center. Penn State sits third.

Hoosiers hope long shot turns into tourney bid

After defeating Northwestern Wednesday, interim head coach Mike Davis said the Hoosiers can beat any team in the Big Ten. The rest of the league might have something to say about that. First up for the Hoosiers is conference leader No. 4 Illinois at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in Assembly Hall.

Team heads east in second weekend

Normally, junior Brooke Monroe and sophomore Stormy Hanson are just your run-of-the-mill energetic athletes. But this week the two have hardly been able to contain their excitement. After weeks of anxiously awaiting the start of the women's softball season, the Hoosiers' scheduled season opener Saturday at Evansville was canceled because of soggy field conditions. The cancellation of the game has made the co-captains that much more ecstatic about starting the season, which they will finally be able to do today against Virginia at the Triangle Classic at North Carolina State.

Team anxious for outdoor action, start of season

If IU's baseball players appear anxious, it's probably because they want to go outside and play. Because of poor weather conditions this spring, the Hoosiers have only ventured outdoors to practice twice, coach Bob Morgan said.

Hoosiers prepare for Big Tens with invitational

This weekend, the Hoosier Hills Track and Field Invitational offers the women's team opportunities to improve times and marks a week before the Big Ten Championships. Some athletes won't run their main events to avoid injury, while others will aim for personal records.

Hoosiers hunting for boost in standings

As the wrestling team's regular season comes to a close, Big Ten teams continue to jockey for position in the standings. The 22nd-ranked Hoosiers have an important weekend coming up with road matches against Big Ten rivals Michigan State and Wisconsin.

Hoosiers dominate Wildcats

With 2:02 remaining in the first half of Wednesday night's men's basketball game, Northwestern coach Bill Carmody screamed. Then, he stomped his foot, picked up his cup and plodded to the end of the Wildcat bench.

Swimmers' hard work to culminate today

The time has come. After a year of training and constant preparation for 11 teams, the Big Ten Women's Swimming and Diving Championships begins today at the Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center in the Student Recreational Sports Center.

Women hope to make splash as Big Ten championships begin

Many people want the chance to see the world, but few get do so while pursuing other dreams as well. Sophomore Tina Gretlund got that chance, traveling around the world as a member of Denmark's national swimming team.

Competitors don't bother senior

Senior Jenn Cristy, IU's most-decorated swimmer, will start her last Big Ten Championship today with the 50-yard freestyle.

Men's Basketball: Freshman holds his own off bench

As the last man on IU's depth chart, freshman forward Mike Roberts knows he'll only see action in blow-out games. Knowing Northwestern has won one game in the conference in the last two years, he was hoping the regulars would give him a chance to get off the bench and into last night's game.
