Murray State at IU women

A turnaround jumper by Georgie Jones with 15 seconds left gave Indiana its first lead since it was 2-0, and Sasha Chaplin added two free throws with 3.1 seconds left to seal it. Murray State’s desperation heave was well short. HOOSIERS 70, RACERS 67

3:52: Down one, Indiana missed four free throws and a jumper before Danilsa Andujar made 1-of-2 to tie the game, but a Murray State putback regains the lead. Racers have the ball and the lead. RACERS 62, HOOSIERS 60

7:47: Getting over the hump always the hardest part of a comeback, and that’s what Indiana is facing now. Hoosiers have twice had the ball down just three but turned it over, allowing Murray State to score. RACERS 58, HOOSIERS 53

11:29: Indiana keeps clawing back, getting within two on Aulani Sinclair’s long 3 moments ago, as close as the Hoosiers have been since it was 6-4. RACERS 51, HOOSIERS 49

15:19: Jasmine McGhee continues to enjoy her best game as a Hoosier, getting IU within five. But back-to-back 3s from Murray State push the lead back to 11 in no time. No doubt IU is playing better now, but Racers make you pay for every lapse in concentration. RACERS 46, HOOSIERS 35

Indiana went to more man-to-man defense late in the half, which helped cut down the Murray State 3s and offensive rebounds. Hoosiers just need to keep pounding the ball inside and attacking the basket. They are missing some chippies on the way to 26.3 percent shooting from the field, including 0-of-4 3s. Murray State is 5-of-20 from 3 and shooting 36.8 percent overall after that hot start. Racers also winning the rebounding battle, 30-25. RACERS 35, HOOSIERS 25 (more…)

Belcher apologies in statement to the IDS

Indiana wide receiver Damarlo Belcher released a statement to Justin Albers of the Indiana Daily Student apologizing for his dismissal from the football team. He said that he wasn’t seeing eye-to-eye with Wilson but denied rumors that his dismissal was because of a failed drug test.

Update, 4:30 p.m.:  Belcher forwarded his statement to the Herald-Times via text message. It follows.

I’m sorry. I know I let a lot of people down, including myself. I take full responsibility for my actions because I could have went about them in a better way, but me and (coach Kevin) Wilson wasn’t seeing eye to eye on some things, but I respect his call. This is a lesson learned. I also want to say sorry to my teammates. I know I had a lot of young guys looking up to me and to my fans. I plan on finishing school and looking forward to training in a couple weeks to get ready for the next level.

Donnell Jones back on depth chart and other notes

After missing several weeks with an ankle injury, senior Donnell Jones is listed as a starting safety on this week’s Indiana depth chart. He is backed up by redshirt freshman Shaquille Jefferson, who is on the depth chart for the first time this season. Redshirt freshman Drew Hardin is not on the depth chart. He missed the Ohio State game with a concussion.

With freshman Cody Latimer finished for the season, Connor Creevey found his way on to the wide receiver depth chart behind redshirt sophomore Jamonne Chester. Fred Jones is also back on the depth chart at defensive tackle. Mick Mentzer, who had been one of the backups, is no longer on the depth chart. He has battled injuries for much of the season. Junior Will Matte is listed as the starting center, though he hasn’t started the last two weeks because of injury.
