Hoosiers topple No. 1 Spartans

Thousands of fans -- many of them IU students -- stood in the bleachers screaming and waiting for the final 8.3 seconds of Sunday's game. Going into the final time out, IU was down by two, 58-56. Security guards and ushers held yellow ropes across the baseline to prevent fans from storming the court.

Coach reinvents team

When coach Kathi Bennett took over the women's basketball program last spring, athletics director Clarence Doninger expected a turnaround. Just not so fast.

While campus was empty last month, IU has continued to enact tough defense on its opponents, sprinting to a 12-2 start.

Hoosiers hold off Valpo

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Tom Coverdale saved his best for last, saving the perfect record of Indiana in its Hoosier Classic. Coverdale scored nine of his 17 points in the final seven minutes as Indiana held off Valparaiso 63-60 in Friday night\'s championship game of the 19th Hoosier Classic.

33.3% shooting dooms Hoosiers

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Missouri did exactly what it needed to Monday night -- it played tough, hard-nosed, in-your-face defense. And Indiana had no answer. The Tigers limited the Hoosiers to 33.3 percent shooting and walked away with a 68-63 victory -- their first in Bloomington since 1962.

Hoosiers rally for non-conference win over 49ers

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana knew it had to find a way to stop Charlotte's 3-point shooting barrage Saturday afternoon. In the second half, the Hoosiers did. Indiana rallied from a 17-point second-half deficit to stun the 49ers with an improbable 76-72 victory.

Judo stresses discipline

When many people think of IU athletics, they think of basketball, football or soccer. But IU offers more than just these varsity sports. One such sport is judo.

Club hockey team pummels Illinois

Wrestling team outduels Missouri in season opener

Based on the final score, it's difficult to say whether the IU wrestling team dominated the meet Friday night. But winning seven of ten matches is evidence to make such a claim.

Coverdale cited for illegal consumption

Game a battle between underdogs

Yeagley builds IU tradition

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- All Jerry Yeagley wanted was a shot at varsity status. That was his final four in 1973 -- turning IU soccer into a varsity sport. He never thought that 28 years later he'd have the second highest career collegiate coaching victories, or that his teams would have competed in exactly half of the final four tournaments they had a chance to make. But Yeagley's teams have been that successful.

End of the streak

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Senior forward Matt Fundenberger dyed his hair blond for good luck before the men's soccer team left for Ericsson Stadium Wednesday. When he highlighted his locks in 1998 and '99, the Hoosiers won national titles.

A familiar situation

If IU wins the national championship this weekend with its current record of 16-6, it would be the first team to win the title with more than five losses. Only Duke (18-5-1) in 1986 and Clemson (18-5-1) in 1987 had worse records and won the NCAA championship.
