If you haven’t heard, comedian Kevin Hart is scheduled to make an appearance at the IU Auditorium Dec. 7 at 7 p.m.
The same day at 2 p.m., the IU women’s basketball team will have a home game against IUPUI.
Players on the team are planning on attending Hart’s show, so the Hoosiers are hoping to fill out Hart’s day, too. Below is a video made by members of the IU women’s basketball team begging — I mean, begging — Hart to show up at the Hoosiers’ game.
Only time will tell if he will answer the call, but the Hoosiers certainly make a case that Hart should stop by Assembly Hall.
WARNING: This video contains screaming reminiscent of “Beliebers” at a Justin Bieber concert.
While Indiana is expected to beat teams like Lamar, there are much different expectations for a team like Lamar coming into Assembly Hall.
But Lamar head coach Tic Price had an interesting response when asked whether his players would need to overcome any sort of intimidation factor playing the Hoosiers in Bloomington.
“Our kids are so young, they don’t know,” Price said. “They know about Indiana, and I think they respect the tradition here. Right before the game I said ‘Scott May is not going to come through that tunnel tonight. Isaiah Thomas is not going to come out through that tunnel tonight. That’s the ghost of the past. We gotta play the here and now. That’s what we did, but we played a very good basketball team tonight.”
Lamar did not show any fear against the Hoosiers in an 85-72 loss. While Indiana head coach Tom Crean talked after the game about his team’s inexperience and how it might have hurt the Hoosiers on the defensive end Saturday night, Price also felt like his team is going through a “maturation process.”
“Every team in the country goes through adversity. This is our time,” Price said. “We finally began to get a rhythm.”
Two nights after beating a ranked Southern Methodist University team, Indiana managed a 85-72 score against Lamar Saturday at Assembly Hall.
The leader of five Hoosiers who reached double-figure scoring, James Blackmon had 21 points and six rebounds, including a 5-of-7 success rate from 3-point range. Yogi Ferrell added 19 points and 3 assists.
While the Cardinals shot 5-of-23 on 3-pointers, and they turned the ball over 12 times, Lamar produced 48 points in the paint and were able to hang with the Hoosiers.
Lamar’s 6-foot-6 senior forward from Jamaica, Tyran de Lattibeaudiere, led the Cardinals with 18 points and eight rebounds.
Just three days after being released from an Indianapolis rehabilitation hospital, Devin Davis was back at Assembly Hall on Saturday night for the first time since suffering a traumatic brain injury when he jumped in front of a vehicle driven by teammate Emmitt Holt in the early morning hours of Nov. 1.
Davis, who was joined by his father, Devin Davis Sr., at the game, was in the locker room with his teammates before emerging with them for pregame warmups. He watched from midcourt along side assistant coach Tim Buckley, even joking with his teammates at times.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — He smiled when he was told that his 90-yard touchdown run in the third quarter of Saturday’s 42-27 loss at Ohio State was the second-longest in Ohio Stadium history.
That wasn’t even Tevin Coleman’s most noteworthy feat of the day.
Coleman broke Vaughn Dunbar’s Indiana single-season rushing record with 228 yards and three touchdowns against the Buckeyes. The big day for Coleman gives him 1,906 yards for the season, besting Dunbar’s mark of 1,805 set in 1991.
“It’s a blessing,” Coleman said.
He captured the top spot in IU’s record book on his 90-yard run that gave the Hoosiers a 20-14 lead midway through the third. Coleman also had touchdown runs of 52 and two yards.
The only run in IU history longer than Coleman’s is Mickey Erehar’s 98-yarder at Iowa in 1912, while Coleman’s 228 yards were the third-most ever allowed by an Ohio State defense.
Coleman was held to only 50 first-half yards until breaking through in the second half.
“That’s how it’s gonna be against these big teams,” Coleman said. “First, you’re not gonna hit big runs on a great defense. You gotta keep running, hitting the holes hard and soften them up. Eventually a big one’s gonna come for you.”
Wilson sat Coleman for two offensive series following his long run, saying the IU running back was winded. It’s not the first time that has happened this season.
“I’m working to increase my stamina and get better at that,” Coleman said. “But things happen and he’s just looking out for me.”
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he pulled Coleman aside before the game to tell the IU junior how much he was admired. Meyer added that once Coleman gets in second gear, he’s tough to catch.
“I asked Kevin (Wilson) about him — a great Christian kid, great kid,” Meyer said. “Wish him well in the NFL, if that’s what his desire because he’s a really good back. Top 10 back — maybe higher than that.”
