·

Hitting, pitching and defense are the fundamentals the baseball team wants to improve upon when it plays Purdue this weekend at Sembower Field. "We're going to have to pitch good, play good defense," sophomore third baseman Vasili Spanos said.

Penn Relays to test Hoosiers

·

Few sporting events rival the prominence of the Penn Relays, the first and largest collegiate track and field relay meet in the world. Ninth-ranked IU will send its top 20 athletes to join about 22,000 more who will attend the 107-year-old meet. Because of its size, the meet is nicknamed the "Penn Relay Carnival," but the Hoosiers are focused on taking care of business.

Long playoffs reduce excitement

·

Many NBA stars refer to the playoffs as the "second-season" -- a description meant to imply that the slate is wiped clean and focus is regathered. But perhaps the players give it a different meaning. Perhaps they are referring to the length of the post-season, which feels more and more like the regular season.

Cardinals hassle Hoosiers

Fresh off of Tuesday's no-hit victory against Miami of Ohio, the softball squad fell 4-1 to in-state foe Ball State Wednesday in the Hoosiers' final non-conference game. The loss drops IU to 15-33 on the season.

Men's tennis putting it together

·

Entering the Big Ten Championships today in Madison, Wis., the box scores depict an IU men's tennis team whose play has been mediocre in recent weeks. But a look at individual performance reveals a team gaining confidence. Perhaps the most prominent late-season improvement comes from senior Milan Rakvica. Playing at the No. 1 singles position, Rakvica has claimed victory against five of his last seven opponents. He was named Big Ten Co-Athlete of the Week in early April after upsetting No. 20 Graydon Oliver of Illinois in consecutive sets and knocking off Brad Erikson of Northwestern. Rakvica followed with another win against No. 54 Phillip Metz of Ohio State.

Women's team plays better in pairs

·

With the women's tennis team heading toward the end of regular season play, it is hard not to see the biggest strength of the team. In fact, you would be seeing double. IU's doubles play has become the backbone of the squad. The three doubles combinations have come on strong, winning the last 11 points, the last loss coming March 11 against Illinois.

'Asian Invasion' takes baseball by storm

·

Throughout the past half-century, the United States and Japan have made several trades that have benefited both nations. Among the items the Japanese exported to the good old U.S. of A: quality electronic equipment, karaoke, Godzilla movies and, on a more regrettable note, Pokemon.

Senior managers make their mark

·

Perhaps softball coach Diane Stephenson best summarizes the importance of senior managers Matt Nocks and Leslie Shaffer to the team.

Hoosiers capture sweep in flawless performance

·

Dominating defense, flawless pitching and clutch hitting. For most of its season, the softball squad has wondered where these have been. IU (15-32) found them Tuesday at the IU Softball Field, in its first series sweep of the season in a doubleheader against Miami (Ohio) 1-0, 3-2.

Tourney chance lost with team's defeat

A winless weekend on the road ensured the softball team will not meet its goal of reaching the Big Ten tournament. The last-place Hoosiers dropped two games to Northwestern (17-18, 6-7 Big Ten) on Friday, 4-2, 5-1.

Team cruises to 52-point win

Before this weekend, women's track and field coach Randy Heisler said it would be rough for his team to win because the Hoosiers would be competing against Eastern Michigan and Illinois and because those two teams wouldn't steal points from each other.

The best time of the year

·

This, my friends, is the best time of the year if you like sports. Taking nothing away from the drama and excitement of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, the NBA playoffs are the best postseason in sports. But the sports world -- the combination of everything going on at one time -- makes right now better than any other time of year.

Hoosiers fall again in weekend series

·

After losing two of three games to Eastern Kentucky this weekend at Sembower Field, the baseball team has lost every weekend series in the 2001 season. The Hoosiers began the three-game set with a doubleheader Saturday against the Colonels. In the first seven-inning game on the day, the Hoosiers hit two home runs -- one of which was a grand slam -- but came up three runs short, losing 9-6.
