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."

Team faces No. 4 Washington

·

A definite trend is forming as to how the men's soccer team spends its weekends. Rather than just relaxing or catching up on some studying as most college students tend to do on their Saturday and Sunday, this group of athletes battles against the elite teams in the country.

Hoosiers head back to Sweet 16

·

SACRAMENTO -- Sophomore A.J. Moye was shouting. Senior Dane Fife was joking about how close his college career came to ending. And junior Kyle Hornsby was talking about how good it feels to be going where no IU team has been since 1994. The Hoosiers are going to play in the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament, and an excited locker room after a 76-67 win Saturday night against North Carolina-Wilmington couldn't contain its excitement.

Injuries don't slow Hoosiers in win

·

INDIANAPOLIS - The ankle survived, and the back held up. Jared Jeffries and Tom Coverdale, who both spent practice time on the sidelines this week with injuries, each played at least 32 minutes and paced No. 21 and fourth-seeded IU in its 67-56 win over fifth-seeded Michigan State in the quarterfinal round of the Big Ten Tournament at Conseco Fieldhouse. Jeffries, who has endured an ankle sprain over the last six games, scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds. Coverdale, who began suffering from back spasms late last month, scored 11 points, had seven assists and four steals. "My back got kind of sore, but it's nothing that's going to keep me out of any games," Coverdale said. Coverdale wore a back brace during practice this week, but didn't use it Friday. Jeffries played on a heavily taped ankle, then wrapped it in ice immediately after the game. "It feels a lot better than it did the first time we played," Jeffries said. "They key is for me to keep ice on it and keep going for this three-day stretch." Both Coverdale and Jeffries are expected to play tomorrow, but Coverdale indicated he might have injured his left hand during the first half. The junior guard said he planned to get X-rays, but those came back negative.

Red and white to cream and crimson

·

After minor changes throughout the athletic department in his first six months as athletics director, Michael McNeely has begun to make significant changes at IU. The first came when McNeely supported the Bloomington Faculty Council's proposal to focus more intensely on academics and less on athletics. The second major change to his position was firing ex-football coach Cam Cameron and the hiring former Vanderbilt and Louisiana State coach Gerry DiNardo. The third and most recent change will be the most noticeable -- the use of the vintage cream and crimson IU school colors and the addition of a new logo and mascot. The red and white that fans see waved at IU sporting events could be missing as early as February.

Bittersweet

ATLANTA -- It wasn't supposed to end this way. Not after surviving the first two rounds for the first time in eight years. Not after shocking top-ranked Duke. Not after slipping past No. 3 Oklahoma to complete an improbable run to the NCAA championship game.

Stopping scorer key to game

·

IU guard Jill Hartman cringed when told Penn State's Kelly Mazzante had added a fade-away three-pointer to her entourage. "Really?" Hartman asked. "Oh my goodness." The nation's leading scorer at 25.2 points per game as a sophomore guard, Mazzante continues to develop her elaborate repertoire of dazzling offense.

If the Slipper Fits

ATLANTA -- The IU men's basketball team has been in this game five times before, but none of the Hoosiers' current players have. This will be the first national title game in school history for Maryland.

Knight's story to be released today

·

The fact that Bob Knight's new book will be released today, the week of the Final Four, is not surprising. After all, Knight is college basketball's most infamous coach, and the Final Four is its most exciting moment. What is surprising is that the team Knight once coached is back in the Final Four, on the shoulders of new coach Mike Davis. Whether the resurgence of IU basketball will rekindle interest in the program's past -- and Knight's book -- is yet to be seen.
