Hoosiers come home for Classic

After back-to-back wins against Southern Illinois and No. 10 Notre Dame, the Hoosiers play host to the Ameritech/Indiana Classic with a 4-3 record and an abundance of confidence.

Wildcat coach learns from mistakes

Northwestern women's head basketball coach June Olkowski understands the position that IU's women's basketball coach Kathi Bennett holds. Olkowski was a first-year coach last year.

Hoosiers upset No. 10 Irish

SOUTH BEND -- As IU's point guard, sophomore Tom Coverdale's job is running the Hoosiers' offense. Against Notre Dame Tuesday night, he was IU's offense. Coverdale topped his previous career high of 13 by halftime on the way to a 30-point performance in IU's 86-78 upset win against No. 10 Notre Dame. At times, the only way to stop Coverdale was to grab his jersey, as Notre Dame's Troy Murphy did late in the second half to prevent an easy basket. "I had no idea Tom Coverdale would score 30 points," interim head coach Mike Davis said. "Coverdale stepped his play up in the first half and hit a three pointer that gave us momentum going into halftime."

Defense slows Murphy

SOUTH BEND -- Junior Notre Dame forward Troy Murphy is no secret. It's hard to hide a 6-foot-11 player who averages 26.8 points and nine rebounds per game, and the Hoosiers (4-3) knew their defense would be crucial against the No. 10-ranked Irish (4-1).

Midfielder provides versatility, strength to team

In the final 27 minutes of the IU-North Carolina men's soccer game Saturday, the Tar Heels sent practically their entire team at the Hoosiers' goal in an attempt to tie the game. At one point, junior goalkeeper Colin Rogers moved toward the far post, exposing an open net when North Carolina had the ball. At that moment, junior midfielder Tyler Hawley sprinted to the near post just in time to clear a ball that landed centimeters from the goal line.

Hoosiers seek to avenge earlier loss to Creighton

John Swann has proven himself this season. The sophomore marking back has repeatedly marked the opponent's most dangerous attacker, and, for the most part, he's been successful in shutting his man down. Swann didn't let UCLA's McKinley Tennyson Jr. or Portland's Olympian Conor Casey do much against the Hoosiers. And just this past weekend, he kept North Carolina's Chris Carrieri, the nation's leading scorer, from scoring a goal.

Around the Game

The Big Ten named 13 members of the IU women's soccer team with the honors of Academic All-Conference. The Hoosiers have the third most conference selections behind Iowa (16) and Penn State (15).

Team gets 4th in tourney

Sophomore Megan Geers won the 200-yard breaststroke and freshman Sarah Fiden took first place in the 1,650-yard freestyle for the women's swimming team Sunday in at the Miami Invitational in Oxford, Ohio. Fiden defeated her nearest competitor by almost 13 seconds with a time of 16:49.62.

Hoosiers to face Irish

It's gotten to the point where the University of Notre Dame athletics department decided to give Troy Murphy his own Web site, complete with a diary, photo gallery, quotes, bio and stats -- everything an Irish fan would tear right into, short of the guy's shoe size.

Hoosiers return to final four

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Eddie Robinson said he took his eyes off Ryan Mack for two seconds Saturday at North Carolina's Fetzer Field. For two seconds, Robinson watched the ball instead of his man. Because of that brief moment, the Tar Heels can only watch the NCAA men's soccer College Cup this weekend. Mack, a junior midfielder, received a ball from senior midfielder Justin Tauber and turned on Robinson in those two seconds, finding himself a half step ahead of the Tar Heel midfielder with nothing in front of him. Then, with 31:08 remaining in the quarterfinal game, Mack sent a shot to the upper near corner and past North Carolina goalkeeper Michael Ueltschey. IU hung on to win 1-0. The victory, IU's third in three tournament road games thus far, sends the Hoosiers to their fourth consecutive final four.

Laskowski seeks top athletics job

John Laskowski, a former IU basketball player, said he has applied for the position of athletics director. An 18-member search committee headed by Vice President for Administration Terry Clapacs is seeking a replacement for athletics director Clarence Doninger, who is retiring June 30.

Almost an upset

Junior forward Rachael Honegger\'s three pointer with 1.3 seconds remaining fell short as No. 8 Louisiana Tech escaped a major upset, holding on to beat IU at the Houston Hilton Classic Saturday, 54-53.

Coach finds final four trip difficult, but rewarding

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- In late October, Jerry Yeagley chuckled as he talked on the telephone with a fellow men's soccer coach about the Hoosiers' top-four position in the national polls. Yeagley thought his team was "overrated." He was right.

One win, one tie for hockey team

The hockey team tied its home game with the University of Dayton Friday, but an 11-man scoring assault allowed the team to prevail against the Flyers Saturday.

Taking shots pays off for IU

Shoot or sit. That was the choice interim head coach Mike Davis gave his guards Saturday before their game against Southern Illinois.

Guard grows as player, leader

Mike Davis called sophomore guard Tom Coverdale on the day he was named interim head coach, and it was a call Coverdale will never forget.
