Invitational gears team for conference meet

With three weeks until the Big Ten Indoor Track Championships, coach Marshall Goss was looking for some sign of life from a number of his athletes. His wish came true this weekend at the Indiana Invitational. Goss said he believed the competition proved his athletes would be able to compete in the conference. "I felt that we competed very well," Goss said. "We still have a ways to go, but in looking at the areas across the board, you can pick out highlights.

Purdue prevails against Indiana

When any IU team faces Purdue, motivation isn't a problem. The motivation is Purdue. But this weekend's swim meet against the Boilermakers would also be that last time Purdue would swim in Lambert Pool. Try as they might, the men's swim team couldn't beat the Boilermakers. It won four of the events at the meet in a 131-112 loss to Purdue Saturday. "It was one of the Indiana-Purdue battles that we came up on the short end of," coach Kris Kirchner said. "We had some great performances by a bunch of different guys."

Fife's effort leads to win

Haston scores career-high 29

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Although the Hoosiers are notorious for struggling on the road, junior center Kirk Haston found a sweet spot 550 miles east of Bloomington. Last February, he scored what was then a career-high 28 points against Penn State. Saturday, Haston was playing with four fouls and managed to score a career-high 29 points in IU's 85-78 overtime win against Penn State (13-7, 3-6 Big Ten) before a crowd of 15,232 at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Minnesota too strong for Hoosiers

As the opening lineups were announced Friday night for IU's clash with Minnesota, it was understood a Hoosier victory would be nothing short of miraculous.

The loss gave the Hoosiers (13-4,1-3 Big Ten) their third consecutive conference defeat and preserved Minnesota\'s (14-1,3-0 Big Ten) perfect conference record.
