The volleyball team is on a two-game losing streak after dropping matches to conference foes Penn State and Ohio State. The Hoosiers (12-8, 3-7 in conference play) are tied for seventh in the Big Ten with Michigan, heading into a game with Michigan State Friday.
Colin Rogers hadn't started a game in his collegiate soccer career until four weeks ago. Since then, the IU junior goalkeeper has started and won seven consecutive games.
The women's soccer team ended its Big Ten season Friday, losing a 1-0 game to Purdue. With 3:35 remaining in the first half, Purdue freshman back Jenny Kinkead put the game-winner past keeper Chrissy Heubi. That would be all that the Boilers would need as IU extended its scoreless streak to 463 minutes. It was the eighth time the Hoosiers have been shut out in the conference season.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- No member of the men\'s soccer team knows what losing a Big Ten game feels like. In fact, the Hoosiers haven\'t lost a Big Ten game in 38 matches. The unbeaten streak extends back to Oct. 13, 1995, when IU lost to eventual national-champion Wisconsin 2-0.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The men's soccer team needed a penalty kick in the game's 20th minute Sunday to beat Ohio State in its final regular season Big Ten game. The penalty kick, scored by senior forward Matt Fundenberger after junior midfielder Tyler Hawley was taken down in the penalty area, was all the scoring that took place at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, as IU won 1-0.
The football team's best week of practice this season resulted in IU picking up its biggest win in the coach Cam Cameron era. After getting embarrassed 58-0 last Saturday at Michigan, IU (3-4, 2-2 in Big Ten play) recovered Saturday to defeat No. 22 Minnesota 51-43 before a Homecoming crowd of 30,882 at Memorial Stadium. The win marked Cameron's first victory against a ranked opponent. IU's last win against a ranked team was a 10-0 victory against Michigan State in 1993.
Women's soccer coach Joe Kelley is starting to do the things he said he hoped to do with his lineup. The wealth of talent he possessed at the beginning of the season disappeared during the bulk of conference play as injuries kept Kelley's plans purely on paper.
Freshman outside hitter Monique Pritz must not be a big fan of ESPN2. Upon learning that the volleyball team's match Saturday at Ohio State would be nationally-televised, she deadpanned "Oh really?" A shrug of her shoulders accompanied her unsuspected interrogation.
In baseball, there is always a player that is considered the "utility" player. He's a player that could play any position on the field the coach feels necessary. For the women's soccer team, the utility player is freshman Kim Sturm. Last year Sturm had to fight through an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury that had benched her during her senior year of high school and her freshman year at IU. Despite the injury, she has returned this season to play an extensive amount of roles on the field.
When it comes to team chemistry, the talk often centers around two topics: senior leadership and new talent. And then there's the middle child, constantly seeking attention. Everyone's heard of the sophomore jinx -- the phrase used for second-year players who flounder after a stellar freshman season. Fortunately for this year's men's soccer team, the sophomore jinx is nothing but a myth.
Mike Tyson's boorish behavior at a recent press conference was quite strange. The former heavyweight champion cut loose with a vulgarity-strewn rant that left officials and the media perplexed as to the result of this Friday's match with Andrew Golota (36-4, 29 KO\'s).
It's 8 a.m. What have you done today? The crew team has been training in the water of Lake Lemon for two hours. To some it might seem crazy, but to the team it is routine. Whichever the case, it's the reason for the success of the women rowers.
Diver of the Year and three-meter national champion last season. Jeff Huber coached Reiling and the women's team to a national championship last season, and he did the same with the men. Huber was named Big Ten Diving Coach of the Year for the fourth straight season for his accomplishments.
