Frontrunners in playoff race

·

As the dog days of August come to an end, the excitement of the baseball season has grown exponentially. Five of the six division races are still up for grabs, the wild card race is anybody's guess, and, of course, there is the ever present home run race. While no race can match the excitement brought in 1998's record breaking season, this year's race is special for one reason: All of the frontrunners also find themselves in a pennant race.

Hoosiers still in Big Ten title hunt

·

Wednesday was a big goof -- a black mark on IU's Big Ten slate. But Mike Davis' message was simple, and he said it even before IU lost to Wisconsin in Assembly Hall Wednesday: Win or lose, the Hoosiers are still on top of the Big Ten.

Moye sparks Hoosiers, crowd

·

INDIANAPOLIS- Luke Recker was definitely the star of Saturday's first Big Ten semifinal at Conseco Fieldhouse. But sophomore A.J. Moye was the star for the Hoosiers. In his usual role of coming off the bench, Moye gave IU a huge lift throughout the game Saturday, scoring 14 points in 25 minutes of action. He also drew an offensive foul and played terrific defense on whomever he was guarding.

Pair loses in tournament, misses quarterfinals

·

Karie Schlukebir and Linda Tran would have liked one more victory. The junior-sophomore pair had been invincible since March 9, winning 15 doubles matches in a row before falling last week, one round short of All-American status.

Take me out to the ball game

·

One of my favorite advertisements I have ever laid my eyes upon in a magazine was for a then-new Major League Baseball video game. It had a Wrigley Field worker looking out onto the field from inside the monstrous green scoreboard that sits behind the centerfield bleachers. Under the worker in the picture the type says, "If heaven were anything like Wrigley Field on a Saturday afternoon, then death wouldn't be so bad." We should adopt that as our national motto.

How sweet it is

·

SACRAMENTO -- With just more than 46 seconds left in Saturday night's game in Arco Arena, junior Kyle Hornsby made a layup and drew a foul, giving the Hoosiers a seven-point lead on North Carolina-Wilmington. This was after IU had burned two timeouts trying to get the ball past half-court against the Seahawks' trapping press. As Hornsby pumped his fist, IU coach Mike Davis slid down into his courtside chair, legs and arms extended, palms open to the sky and a big smile on his face, as if to say "Finally."

Kram leaves legacy

·

Losing a leader is never easy. But, the women's soccer team is losing not only a leader in graduating senior Kelly Kram, but also a dedicated teammate, an experienced player and a humorous personality. After four years of stellar play for the Hoosiers, Kram will graduate tomorrow with a degree in exercise science.

·

INDIANAPOLIS -- Bruno Junqueira knew all about the top threats to his first Indianapolis 500 pole. He'd raced against Helio Castroneves, Felipe Giaffone and Tony Kanaan since they were driving go-karts in Brazil, and he grew up watching Raul Boesel race Indy cars.

Davis' words stir controversy

·

When Christmas break began, the Hoosiers sat at 6-2 and were coming off of two consecutive wins in their first two home games of the season. IU was headed to Miami to take on the Hurricanes and escape the cold of the Midwest. Things change, and they did for the Hoosiers over the last three weeks. What IU men's basketball coach Mike Davis was doing in the courtroom began to receive more attention than wins and losses.

Paying his dues

·

Imagine this: The setting is the difficult Bethpage Black golf course during the U.S. Open. In the first round of play, a player posts six birdies -- more than any other player in the field. His good play continues through the second round, he makes the cut, and this player finds himself paired with Greg "The Shark" Norman to begin Saturday's round. The player continues to shoot well, and he finishes tied with "The Shark" at the end of the day. By the end of the 72nd hole on Sunday, the player finishes ahead of such notable players as Norman, John Daly -- a PGA champion, Jesper Parnevik and tied with Jose-Maria Olazabal -- a two-time Masters champ

Team dominates IUPUI 1-0

·

Sophomore forward Lucas Christian scored 11 minutes into the game and the men's soccer team dominated the match Friday in its spring season opener, a 1-0 victory against IU-Purdue University at Indianapolis. The Hoosiers, playing their first of six games this spring, created scoring opportunities early against the Jaguars but failed to convert most of them. The same problem plagued IU last season against IUPUI, when the Hoosiers tallied 25 shots but needed two goals in the final five minutes to win 2-0. Sophomore Pat Noonan, who created many of IU's chances, called the team's effort "decent."
