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.

Early, late runs seal win for IU

·

Rick Pitino was motionless, sitting on the bench by himself with his right hand held to his mouth. Both teams were headed to their locker rooms Saturday afternoon for halftime, but Pitino was still sitting on the bench, trying to figure out what had just happened to his team.

Fiden looks to future

·

Sarah Fiden splashed onto the scene for IU swimming last year as a freshman. In her first year as a Hoosier, Fiden set three individual school records in the 500-yard freestyle, 1000-yard freestyle and the mile. 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.

Hoosier underdogs triumph against Purdue

·

Although the IU women's tennis team's previous record against Purdue under Hoosiers coach Lin Loring was 41-1, the Hoosiers were the underdog to the Boilermakers on Saturday. But even with a lower Big Ten and national ranking, IU beat Purdue 5-2. The victory contributed one point to the Titan Series between IU and Purdue.

Hoosiers struggle to score, drop two

Hoosiers hang close but fall to N.C. State

The women's basketball team kept up with its second top 10 foe in a week. But yet again the Hoosiers couldn't manage an upset as IU (1-2) stumbled 50-44 to No. 10 North Carolina State Friday at Assembly Hall. IU failed to score in the final 2:40 minutes after senior center Jill Chapman pulled her team ahead 44-41. She fouled out with 1:41 remaining.

Davis becomes favorite among national media

·

ATLANTA -- It's hard not to like a guy as easygoing as Mike Davis. And for the national media that got to know him for the first time in Atlanta this weekend, it would be an understatement to say that they fell in love with him.

Iowa could make a 'Big' mess

·

INDIANAPOLIS -- Reggie Evans and Iowa are looking for a second chance to make up for an underachieving regular season. Luke Recker scored 25 points and Evans added 19 and a career-tying 18 rebounds as Iowa opened defense of its Big Ten Tournament championship with an 87-72 victory over Purdue Thursday. The Hawkeyes (17-14), the tournament's ninth seed, advance to Friday's quarterfinals against No. 1 seed Wisconsin (18-11). Recker and Evans combined for 24 points in the second half, as Iowa led by as many as 20. Recker, the former Indiana high school star who played two seasons with the Hoosiers, hit a fadeaway three pointer that saw him tumble into Alford for a 69-54 lead with 8:37 to go. A year ago, Iowa, as the sixth seed, became the first Big Ten team to win four games to win the title.

Sophomore steps up from first season

·

As the Hoosiers prepared for last year's regional meet, they received some bad news. Then-sophomore Amanda Bell would not be able to run in that meet because of injury. Coach Judy Bogenschutz had a decision to make: Who would she send to run in Bell's spot? Bogenschutz called on then freshman Becky Obrecht to run the biggest race of her life. "I was excited because I hadn't raced for a while. It was a big race. I was glad that coach had the confidence in me to run that race," Obrecht said. Obrecht hadn't run a 6K race all season. This was going to be her first race in five weeks. Obrecht stepped in and ran a good race, placing 5th on the squad and 80th overall.

IU bench helps scoring burden on way to victory

·

It's no wonder Notre Dame entered Tuesday's game against IU shooting 52 percent from the floor. If the Irish don't shoot from three-point range, they shoot from three feet. Inside, inside, inside was the approach in the second half of IU's 76-75 victory, and the results didn't leave coach Mike Davis happy.

Team shows fire, can't seal win

·

IU coach Kathi Bennett held up a laminated white sign with huge, black letters spelling, "IOWA." Her team displayed weak intensity after a feisty first half against the Hawkeyes Sunday. She didn't want it to happen again. Not against No. 11 Purdue. Not for the Barn Burner. Her Hoosiers heeded Bennett's reminder -- at least after the first five minutes of the second half. The Boilermakers unleashed an 8-0 run to start the half. Then point guard Heather Cassady flaunted her senior leadership. After that senior forward Erin McGinnis unveiled her crazy three-point shooting savvy. The Hoosiers displayed passion in waves at Assembly Hall, but couldn't smother Purdue center Mary Jo Noon (18 points) and forward Laura Meadows' tenacity to seize rebounds.

Spirit of Sport returns

For the 26th year, the Division of Recreational Sports is hosting a sports "all-nighter" in an effort to benefit the Special Olympians of Indiana Feb. 8-9 from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. Held at the School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, Spirit of Sport was designed as a charity function to get IU students, staff and faculty involved in recreational sports, while raising money and awareness for those athletes representing the state in the Special Olympics. The event was contrived in 1976 and has raised over $277,000, with the most successful year coming in 2001, raising over $15,000.
