Column: Survive and advance

I officially have no idea what the hell is going on in this tournament anymore. It doesn’t matter what seed you are: Any given team on any given day can go down.

Tonight the Hoosiers will take on a VCU team unlike any foe they have faced in conference play. The Rams pride themselves on a defense that has recorded the most steals in Division I, including the eight they forced in a 62-59 win against Wichita State Thursday.

New Mexico State really has nothing to lose. It's the classic NCAA Tournament storyline of big-time program plays favorite to little known school playing with a chip on its shoulder.

Column: On with the Madness

On to Selection Sunday. The Hoosiers ran into one of two Big Ten teams it has not beaten this season and lost in a way nobody expected, as IU fell 79-71 against Wisconsin.

This game is IU’s to lose. By defeating Purdue, the Hoosiers earned fifth place in the Big Ten and a matchup with the last place Nittany Lions in the first round of the conference tournament.


In one of the most surprising regular seasons of all time, which of the IU men's basketball team's 24 wins sticks out the most? Below, five of those wins are ranked not by which were most important to the Hoosiers’ tournament résumé, but by which meant the most to the program and the season.

Column: So long, Assembly Hall

The sound of bouncing basketballs, whistles and barking head coaches grew louder as I approached a pair of closed, big, black doors. It was my first time in Bloomington, when I was on my campus visit during the winter of 2007.

Even though IU is now securely in the NCAA Tournament, there is still a lot to play for Sunday. First and foremost, it is the chance to give these five seniors a win in their last game at Assembly Hall.

Column: Persevering from the post

Tom Crean was shorter than expected. That is what surprised senior forward Tom Pritchard the most on his first day at IU. Not the scandal that rocked the foundations of Indiana basketball to spawn an unprecedented rebuilding project. Not that the squad he would be playing on was bringing back a combined average of just 12.8 minutes and 1.6 points per game from the prior season in Kyle Taber and Brett Finklemeier.
