Junior comes back after year on bench

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- It's been a long time coming for junior forward Erin McGinnis.

Rested Hoosiers ready for revenge

After a week off from games, sophomore guard Tom Coverdale said it's time to get back to business. Not that he hasn't enjoyed the time to rest -- he's averaging nearly 38 minutes per game -- but he's looking forward to playing Michigan at 1 p.m. Sunday in Assembly Hall.

Football team signs 22 recruits

Football Coach Cam Cameron has said IU's weak point last season was its defensive secondary. Wednesday, he announced his plans to fix the problem.

Doninger suspends Honegger

After saying a week ago that the athletics department properly dealt with senior Rachael Honegger's guilty plea to a felony, athletics director Clarence Doninger agreed Wednesday to suspend Honegger from playing basketball during an IU Athletics Committee investigation. Honegger can practice and travel with the team but cannot participate in regular season or postseason games until the inquiry is completed.

Hoosiers trying to break out of slump

Junior forward Erin McGinnis said the women's basketball team isn't looking to win -- just not to lose.

Since then, IU has dropped five of its last seven games.

4 players sign letters of intent

After being shut out in half of its games in 2000, head coach Joe Kelley has spent the off-season looking for ways to boost the women's soccer team's offense. What he found were three players who have accounted for nearly 200 goals in their high school careers, and a defensive MVP to make sure the Hoosiers' 1.17 goals-against average doesn't get any higher.

Team looking for quick start

For softball coach Diane Stephenson, there is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding her squad this year. On top of the fact that her roster is dominated by underclassmen -- six freshmen and four sophomores -- poor weather has prevented the team from practicing outdoors, which has made it difficult for Stephenson to gauge her team's improvement.

Player of year to sign with soccer team

Ned Grabavoy Jr., the national high school soccer player of the year, plans to sign with the five-time national champion Hoosiers early next week, his father said Tuesday night.

Senior lets game speak for itself

If you want to find a quiet leader who lets his game speak for itself, look no farther than senior Mike Pinger.

Haston helps save squandered lead
