Seniors say goodbye with Minnesota win

All the excitement Tom Coverdale had regarding Tuesday's game was not tucked away. More than once during his last appearance in Assembly Hall, the senior guard was waving his arms to pump up the crowd, and following one adrenaline-filled moment, Coverdale pumped his fist and screamed into the stands before joining his team in the timeout huddle. The IU men's basketball game against Minnesota signaled more than just the end of Coverdale's, senior guard Kyle Hornsby's and senior forward Jeff Newton's careers in Bloomington. It was also crucial for the Hoosiers, who needed a win to help their chances for an NCAA tournament berth.

Their last dance

When Tom Coverdale, Kyle Hornsby and Jeff Newton each arrived as freshman in Bloomington ready to make an impact on the IU men's basketball team. Throughout their time as Hoosiers, the men have experienced the striking low of losing a coach and the ultimate high of making it to the NCAA title game. Not to mention all the trying and exciting games smashed in between. Tonight their eventful careers in Bloomington come to an end as they will take the floor of Assembly Hall one last time when IU faces the Minnesota Golden Gophers at 7 p.m. The game is scheduled to air on ESPN.

Newton huge in Hoosier win

Where in Assembly Hall was senior Jeff Newton when Iowa went on a 21-6 run to get back in the game Saturday night? The forward was sitting on the bench with a towel over his lap, his jersey untucked, just watching as the Hawkeyes gave the Hoosiers a scare in the waning minutes of regulation.

Team lacks energy in loss to Fighting Illini

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- What the IU men's basketball team didn't need in the midst of three games on the road was exactly what they got -- a six-day break that only helped the Hoosiers forget their revitalizing performance during the win at Iowa last Wednesday.

Rematch with Illinois

The IU men's basketball team is set to take the floor at 9 p.m. tonight in Assembly Hall against the University of Illinois. Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, it's not the Assembly Hall that is home for them. Instead, IU travels to Champaign-Urbana to face the No. 18th ranked Fighting Illini (17-5, 7-4 Big Ten) in the like-named stadium. The game, which is set to be aired on ESPN, is a rematch between two of the 2002 co-Big Ten season champions. IU and Illinois first faced each other this season on Jan. 18 in Bloomington. At the time, the Hoosiers were ranked in the top-20 and the Illini were enjoying a top-10 ranking.

Finally! IU grabs first Big Ten road win

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The men's basketball team did something a little different Wednesday night. Against Iowa in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, the Hoosiers picked up a halftime lead. And this time, they didn't squander it. For the first time in seven tries, and not since Dec. 31, 2002, IU picked up a road win against the Iowa Hawkeyes, 79-63.

IU hopes to stop five-game skid

The last time the IU men's basketball team experienced a five-game losing streak, a Republican was president and war was a reality. Perhaps the national events from 31 years ago are oddly familiar, but the winning drought presently plaguing the Hoosiers is unfamiliar territory for the current team.

Freshman player decides to transfer

It may not have been too hard to read Daryl Pegram's unhappiness. With just two early season game appearances for the IU men's basketball team to his credit, the freshman forward spent the last couple of months on the bench, dressed in street clothes.
