Fife's effort leads to win

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- When IU played Penn State Jan. 17 in Assembly Hall, junior guard Dane Fife played one of his best defensive games, shutting down Penn State guard Joe Crispin, one of the nation's most accurate shooters. A gritty performance from Fife on defense is hardly a surprise. But interim head coach Mike Davis has been waiting patiently this season for Fife to show more consistency on offense.

Haston scores career-high 29

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Although the Hoosiers are notorious for struggling on the road, junior center Kirk Haston found a sweet spot 550 miles east of Bloomington. Last February, he scored what was then a career-high 28 points against Penn State. Saturday, Haston was playing with four fouls and managed to score a career-high 29 points in IU's 85-78 overtime win against Penn State (13-7, 3-6 Big Ten) before a crowd of 15,232 at the Bryce Jordan Center. It was the first time the Hoosiers won back-to-back games on the road in the conference since the 1995-96 season.
