Hoosiers to face exhibition foe

·

The women's basketball team could walk away with an exhibition triumph at 7 p.m. today at Assembly Hall if the opponent shows the same form it has displayed all week. Two other Big Ten teams have overwhelmed IU's foe, Premier All-Stars, in the last five days. Michigan State knocked off the touring team of former college stars 93-74 Sunday. Penn State led its entire game against the All-Stars, winning 78-68 Wednesday night without the Nittany Lions' best player, Rashana Barnes.

Old foes, new chance for team

·

The women's volleyball team brings competition back home this weekend as it faces Ohio State today and Penn State Saturday. Previously this season, the Hoosiers lost to both nationally ranked teams on the road. Since then, team members said they feel they have improved and have proved that by winning three of their last five matches. They will go into this weekend with a 7-15 overall record and 4-10 record in the Big Ten.

Team relaxes before battling

·

With the best record in the Big Ten, the men's soccer team earned a bye into the second round of the conference tournament this weekend, which will take place at the McClimon Soccer Complex in Madison, Wis. The No. 4 Hoosiers (12-3-1, 6-0) will have an opportunity to relax Thursday while Michigan and Wisconsin battle for the right to meet them Friday at 2 p.m. for the semi-final match. Senior goalie Colin Rogers said although the bye is a benefit, the team hasn't forgotten last year's tournament, in which they lost to Ohio State.

Tournament success may depend on 'now veteran' freshmen

·

With head coach Jerry Yeagley returning a steady group of players from last year's College Cup team, it was unclear what kind of impact IU's heralded recruiting class would make in their first season. Now with the regular season in the books, there is no question that the freshmen will have a large role if IU is to make it through the Big Ten Tournament and to their fifth consecutive College Cup. "We have a lot of talented young players," Yeagley said. "Those freshmen are now veterans with a season under their belt so we don't expect them to make freshman mistakes any longer. These are guys who have played at a pretty good level before and hopefully won't be in awe."

Seniors reflect on career, prepare for last dance

·

Some may look at the four Final Four appearances and two national championships the men's soccer team has produced during the past four years and speculate that the squad's senior class must be spoiled rotten. But backs Josh Rife and Ryan Hammer, midfielders Bobby de St. Aubin and Tyler Hawley and goalie Colin Rogers have paid their dues, and they do not take anything for granted. "What makes this group (of seniors) unique is that all five of them had to prove themselves here," head coach Jerry Yeagley said. "They didn't come in as stars."

Varied training methods unite runners

·

Different runners specialize in different distances and events. But Coach Judy Bogenschutz said she is seeking a balance on her cross country team. "First thing I tell all of them in the fall is that they are 5K and 6K runners," Bogenschutz said. "They have to say that they're running this distance today and they have to run it well." Sophomore Audrey Giesler is one of the middle distance runners. She also said she tries to separate the two seasons. "I have to have the mentality that I'm a cross country runner now and not worry about track." Giesler said.

Team finishes 3rd in tourney

·

Playing in their fourth and final tournament of the fall, the Hoosiers posted their top finish at the Pine Needles tournament, which concluded Tuesday. After placing fourth in all three of their previous tournaments, the Hoosiers moved up a spot, finishing third. But coach Sam Carmichael said he saw room for improvement. "I think we had the same play we've had all fall, very inconsistent," Carmichael said. "Having to count an 80 the first round and an 82 the second round was just really hard on our scores. If I looked at the scores, I'd have to say we're not playing as well now as we were at the first of the year."

Purcell excels in tough situations

·

The men's cross country team has an important meet this weekend in Terre Haute at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional. So far this season, the Hoosiers have not been able to put together a team effort where each member runs well. But one sophomore, Nathan Purcell, has been able to consistently turn out good races at big meets. In his first year at IU, Purcell was red-shirted, but that was the least of his obstacles. One day he was leaving class for home with a teammate in front of Woodburn where the two had ridden their bikes to class that day. As they were leaving, Purcell was struck by a car on Seventh Street. He was not injured severely, but he did have to spend the night in the hospital.

Hoosiers fall to Life University

·

The hockey team is still trying to figure out what happened this weekend. Fifty-four minutes into Friday night's game, the Hoosiers were comfortably holding on to a 4-2 lead over the defending American Collegiate Hockey Association Division II champions, Life University. Sophomore goalie Charlie Pulley was a force in the net, robbing the Running Eagles on several opportunities.

Kyle Hornsby's season might depend on Mike Davis' fingers. They're crossed. That's how Davis will spend this season, hoping Hornsby can stay healthy and shoot the ball the way he did in IU's exhibition opener Sunday against Athletes in Action.

Volleyball looks to cash in on recent success

·

After two long and successful games at home last weekend the women's volleyball team hits the road Friday, traveling to Northwestern and Wisconsin for another weekend of Big Ten play. IU is 6-14 overall and 3-9 in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers' last two conference games proved to be a confidence booster for the team as they defeated Iowa in four games (24-30, 30-28, 30-20, 30-27) and nearly defeated Minnesota in five games (30-27, 30-32, 22-30, 30-19, 10-15).
