Junior showing leadership

·

This is the first time junior Greg Schaefer has wrestled a full season, and he is making the most of his opportunity. After going 17-11 (6-1 Big Ten) last year, Schaefer is off to a fast start. He has put together a 15-2 record as the Big Ten season approaches next weekend. But the Big Ten conference is considered the toughest in the nation, with a majority of the teams ranked in the top 25. Because Schaefer has more experience under his belt, he realizes what lies ahead.

Team discovers winning formula

·

The formula for success at IU last season wasn't an effective one: Score at least 40 points or lose. And that formula seemed to be the case again early this season. The football team won only one of its first six games, and the lone victory was a 63-32 offensive onslaught against Wisconsin.

Purdue upset by Old Dominion

·

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Hamchetou Maiga's 17 points and 17 rebounds led Old Dominion to a 74-70 overtime upset Monday night of Purdue, last year's runner-up in the NCAA tournament. No. 2-seeded Purdue lost in the second round one day after defending national champion Notre Dame did. Seventh-seeded Old Dominion (27-5) will play No. 3 Kansas State in the Mideast Regional semifinals on Saturday in Milwaukee.

Team Major Taylor finishes race in ninth

·

Despite seemingly constant controversy, protests from other riders, legal action the day before the race and a pulled sponsorship, Team Major Taylor lined up outside the first row of Saturday's Little 500 and raced to a ninth-place finish.

Phi Delt, Kappa teams grab the top 2 spots

After the final results of the men's and women's Little 500 qualifications Saturday, the statement that on any given day, any team can win couldn't be more true.

Hoosiers wait for NCAA seed

·

The IU women's basketball team might have to accomplish a little more success before Hollywood gets rights to portray coach Kathi Bennett and company in a feature-length film. When asked what actress would play her, Bennett said, "We've got to get to the Final Four first."

Defense puts squeeze on Illini

·

By halftime Saturday, the Hoosiers had managed to grab a 46-35 lead over No. 9 Illinois. Three-point shooting had staked IU to that 11-point lead, but the Hoosiers knew defense would be the key to maintaining that margin. "We came in the locker room at halftime and told each other defense is what's going to win it for us," Jarrad Odle said. "If you come out and play defense, you don't have to rely on your offense. Once we kept doing that, we knew we were getting control of the game."

Cam loses one last time

·

Four wins in its last five games proved the football team started heading in the right direction this season, but it didn't convince Athletics Director Michael McNeely to keep Cam Cameron as head coach. McNeely fired Cameron Wednesday afternoon. Cameron finished his five-year tenure at IU with a 18-37 (12-28 Big Ten) record and no bowl appearances. The lack of improvement over the past five years led to McNeely's decision. "Five years is an important measuring standard for a program to demonstrate a high level of competitiveness and consistency, both on the field and in the classroom," McNeely said. "It is not an either-or proposition.

Kent State ends IU's tourney bid

·

SAN DIEGO -- Emotions ran high in IU's locker room after its first round game against Kent State Thursday. But they weren't positive emotions. IU lost 77-73 to a team almost everyone thought they would beat. Kyle Hornsby almost cried. Jeffrey Newton sat in silence. Dane Fife vented to the media.

Iowa ekes by IU for Big Ten tourney win

·

CHICAGO -- Even the announcement that IU is seeded No. 4 in the NCAA men's basketball tournament couldn't cheer up the Hoosiers after they lost 63-61 to Iowa in the Big Ten championship game. "Some of the coaches had a sigh of relief," junior center Kirk Haston said. "And the players are pleased that we finally got the respect we deserve." The Hoosiers haven't been ranked in either the AP or Coach's Top 25 polls all season. But the NCAA tournament selection committee ranked IU in the top 16 teams in the country by making it a fourth seed.

Irish defeat Hoosiers 1-0

·

This season the No.6 Hoosiers have prided themselves on a stifling defense, shutting out eight of the last ten teams they have faced. The backs have been known for smothering the opposing offense as it enters IU territory. Goalie Colin Rogers, with the lowest goals allowed average in the nation at .40, rarely lets the ball touch the back of the net.

65th Big Ten contest is anyone's game

·

Sometimes, 65th anniversaries are overlooked. They're not considered the milestones that 75th and 100th anniversaries are. But if IU defeats Iowa Saturday, the Hoosiers will return from their 65th match-up against the Hawkeyes with a big gift. A 2-2 record in an uncertain Big Ten where it is anyone's game. Both the Hoosiers and the Hawkeyes are 1-2 in the conference, but with five teams ahead of them at 2-1, the standings in the Big Ten are all up in the air.

IU flounders in opener

·

RALEIGH, NC - The experiment didn't work. Coach Cam Cameron admitted it. Tommy Jones knew it. And Antwaan Randle El's statistics revealed it. Cameron's fledgling idea -- moving Randle El to wide receiver and Tommy Jones to quarterback -- sputtered in front of a sellout crowd of 51,500 fans at North Carolina State's Carter-Finley Stadium Thursday night as the Wolfpack (1-0) rolled to a 35-14 victory.

Powerhouses to compete

·

Twenty-seven days ago at qualifications, the field for the women's Little 500 was set. Today, the field will be set loose to determine the 2002 women's Little 500 champion. "It's going to be an awesome race," IU Student Foundation assistant director and Little 500 coordinator Alex Ihnen said. "I think the race is going to be really competitive. The field is wide open. The returning championship team has maybe the strongest rider on the track, but a number of other teams are deeper.
