Hoosiers have an eye on marquee opponents #iubb

The question drew a smirk from Thomas Bryant.

Is the Indiana center, along with his Hoosier teammates, viewing November’s rematch against North Carolina with a measure of revenge?

“Come on now. Come on. You should know that,” Bryant said. “Yeah. We’re all looking forward to it.”

That Nov. 30 showdown with the Tar Heels, who eliminated IU in the NCAA Tournament’s round of 16 in March, stands as one of the highlights of a muscular pre-conference schedule. Bryant has made clear his desire to take another shot at North Carolina, and late this fall in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge he’ll have that opportunity.

The Tar Heels are on a list of matchups bringing intrigue to the November and December slate of games. The Hoosiers are also scheduled to open the season against Kansas at Pearl Harbor, face Butler in the annual Crossroads Classic and meet Louisville in Indianapolis in the first game of a three-year series.

IU players have only just begun their summer workout sessions, but they’re already eyeing the marquee non-conference games to come.

“Being at Indiana, that’s what we want to do,” Bryant said. “Play the best competition out there. Playing against those guys will bring the best out of all of us.” (more…)

IU Hall of Famer Earl Faison dies at 77 #iufb

Indiana announced Monday that former All-American defensive end Earl Faison has died. He was 77 years old.

Faison was a three-year letterwinner at IU from 1958-60, earning third team All-American and All-Big Ten honors as a senior. He returned a 92-yard blocked field goal for the game’s only score in IU’s first Old Brass Spittoon win over Michigan State in 1958.

Faison, a native of Newport News, Va., also led the Hoosiers in receiving in 1958 and 1960. He was IU’s most valuable player in 1960, and played in the East-West Shrine Game, the All-American Bowl and the Hula Bowl. (more…)

Men’s basketball senior Yogi Ferrell and women’s swimming freshman Lilly King are Indiana’s Athletes of the Year, the school announced Monday.

Ferrell is the first Hoosier in the 21st century to win a pair of Big Ten basketball titles.
