Comeback falls short vs. rivals

The water polo team went into this weekend with a few goals in mind: play tough defense, convert power plays and beat Michigan. The Hoosiers came close to accomplishing all of those things.

Former Hoosier moves up in ranks

Morgantown, W.Va. -- Spurned by Bob Huggins and others, West Virginia hired Bowling Green's Dan Dakich as its head coach Thursday. Dakich played at IU and was an assistant to Bob Knight for 11 years there. At West Virginia, he'll try to rebuild a team that set records for losses in two of the past four seasons and was racked with discipline problems. The Mountaineers were 8-20 this season, 1-15 in the Big East.

Windy weather plagues trials

Braving strong winds and cold weather is a hard task for any Little 500 rider. Braving it alone can be even harder. The first series event of Little 500 was held Wednesday.

Hoosiers hope to regain crown

Last year, the Michigan State Spartans won the Indiana Invitational, breaking a streak of three straight tournament victories for IU in the event. This year, the Hoosiers hope to show last year's loss was an aberration.

Golfers enter key stretch

The men's golf team will go to Huntington, W.Va., to play in the Marshall Invitational this Friday and Saturday. The tournament will be held at the Guyan Golf and Country Club and will feature 20 teams. The meet will be the first time IU has played outside of the state of Florida since the spring season began in March.

Team looks for 2nd solid Big Ten showing

IU looks to snap five-game skid

The psychology of fan fanaticism

Potato chips and bags of M&M's litter the kitchen table.

A blonde-haired fan sprints in the living room after having printed off a picture from her computer.

Arbiters hear Team Major Taylor case

About 30 spectators spilled into the hallway in Franklin Hall yesterday at an arbitration hearing between IUSF and men's Little 500 team, Team Major Taylor.

One Last Celebration

It came near the end of the pep rally yesterday evening. "One more year, one more year." As the IU men's basketball team was presented with season trophies, the crowd of about 5,000 started in on Jared Jeffries, urging the sophomore forward to stay at IU instead of opting to enter the NBA Draft in June.

Baseball falls 5-4

After a successful weekend taking three out of four games against Big Ten opponent Illinois, the IU baseball team headed to Indiana State to take on the Sycamores. The team was unable to carry the momentum of the weekend into Wednesday night's game and fell 5-4 in 10 innings.

Pole vaulter has Olympic aspirations

Four years ago was the beginning of men's track and field coach Marshall Goss' career at IU. It also happened to be the first year for senior pole-vaulter Dino Efthimiou. Coach Goss and Efthimiou are a large part of the reason why the Hoosiers have returned to the Big Ten's elite.
