Cuban racks up 5th NBA fine this season

DALLAS — Dallas owner and IU alumnus Mark Cuban has received another fine from the NBA, this one totaling $100,000 for sitting on the baseline during the Mavericks game in Minneapolis, last week.

Hoosier advances to quarterfinals

In its first action since October, the men's tennis team saw some success at the Big Ten Singles Championships last weekend at Ann Arbor, Mich.

He was eliminated in the tournament's quarterfinal by the No. 7 seed from Illinois, Philip Stolt (2-6, 3-6).

Chapman is 'premier post player'

Some say the quiet ones are always more dangerous. This silent predator for the women's basketball team comes in the form of a 6-foot-5 inch junior from Montpelier, Ind. Her name is Jill Chapman. "She's that soft-spoken person," senior guard Heather Cassady said. "Every once in a while, she'll hit a big shot that will get her going, but most of the time she's kind of reserved."

Hoosiers need Big Ten win

Junior guard Dane Fife said he realizes interim head coach Mike Davis wants more offensive productivity from the guards. But Fife said the IU guards aren't quick enough to create their own shots. He even said that maybe, just maybe, the guards "aren't clever enough" to create their own shots. This could be a problem for the Hoosiers (10-7, 1-2 Big Ten) when they face Penn State (11-3, 2-2) and senior guard Joe Crispin, the conference's leading scorer, at 6 p.m. today in Assembly Hall. Crispin is an agile, off-the-dribble shooter averaging 26 points per game against the Big Ten, good for No. 6 in the nation.
