·

SAN ANTONIO - Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma knew what he was talking about three months ago when he said Oklahoma would be a tough team in March.

Evansville 'Ace' spoils Hoosiers' home opener

·

Valuable lessons can be learned from a loss. But it becomes harder to accept losing as a learning experience when it happens twice in one day. Perhaps the greatest lesson learned in the softball team's 5-2 and 4-3 losses to Evansville Tuesday was a tutorial in "Maggie Ross 101." The ace of the Aces' pitching staff was the Missouri Valley Conference's Pitcher of the Year in 2000, and if any Hoosiers (9-17) didn't know of her abilities before, they know now.

Three-part revamp plan under way

·

The athletics department is slowly working its way through a three-part plan to revamp the school's colors and logo, create a new icon and introduce a new mascot. The purpose of this plan is to create a department-wide brand identity for athletics, Jeff Fanter, director of Media Relations for the athletics department, said. After deciding last fall that the athletic department needed a more uniform look, the proposal was unveiled in January. The first change was to start using crimson and cream as the standard school colors, replacing the various shades of red and white used by the varsity teams. This part of the plan also involved the redesign of the block IU logo. A San Francisco-based company, Michael Osborne Designs, was hired to help with this project.

Hoosier great still on court

·

Great players have come and gone in the history of IU basketball. Some are remembered and some are not. Brian Evans, who started at IU from 1993-1996, is one who will likely be remembered for a long time. The forward's accomplishments at IU put him in close contention for IU's All-Century Team, and his talent has continued after his time on McCracken Court in Assembly Hall.

She was also a part of the Hoosiers school record setting 800-yard freestyle relay team. Fiden also received IU's Freshman of the Year award.

Records shattered in Illinois

·

Last year at the Legends Invitational hosted by IU in Franklin, Ind., the Hoosiers shot a round of 296. That marked the team's best effort of the year, three tournaments into the season. This year, at the Northern Invitational in Champaign, Illinois, on the second day of their first tournament, the Hoosiers matched that low round as they finished in fourth place. "It means a lot that in the first tournament we all of a sudden meet our goal from last year," sophomore Danah Ford said. "Overall, if we got that much better from last year to this year, it means we can get even better." The Hoosiers also set the IU team record for cumulative score in the history of the Northern Tournament with an 898. The Hoosiers' eventual fourth place finish in the tournament is perhaps more indicative of the much-strengthened field of play than anything else.
