Penn State at Indiana soccer

Indiana improves to 18-0-3 all time in Big Ten openers, knocking off the Nittany Lions at Armstrong tonight. It took nearly 78 minutes for the Hoosiers to break though, but that they finally did, and the defense made the one goal stand up. It is the third straight shut out for IU. HOOSIERS 1, NITTANY LIONS 0

12:29: Stingy as the Penn State defense is, the Nittany Lions couldn’t hold out forever against a relentless IU attack. After a long throw-in by Indiana, AJ Corrado got the ball in the middle of the field outside the box, then chipped one over the top, where Alec Purdie flicked a header into the upper right corner of the net for the lead. HOOSIERS 1, NITTANY LIONS 0

Watford, Sheehey trying to continue to increase versatility

The addition of Cody Zeller to Indiana’s frontcourt takes certain kinds of pressure off Indiana swingmen Christian Watford and Will Sheehey, but in certain ways, both will  have to be even more versatile than they’ve been in years past.

Watford said at a media availability session Thursday that he’s excited about Zeller’s presence because it means he will likely spend more time at what he believes is his natural offensive position, small forward. Watford’s perimeter skills are unique for a 6-foot-9, 230-pounder, as he finished second on the team with 37 3-pointers and shot 38.1 percent from beyond the arc to lead the team in scoring with 16.0 points per game. Watford still had to spend some time in the post because the Hoosiers were so low on post scoring, however, so he spent a significant amount of time at both forward positions. (more…)

Big 12 looking at Neinas, consultant who pushed Kevin Wilson to IU, as commissoner

After nearly dissolving this week and clinging on to life only because the Pac-12 decided not to expand, the Big 12 is considering a change of commissioner. Dennis Dodd of writes that the conference is considering Chuck Neinas, a former Big 8 commissioner who has been serving as a consultant on coaching hires for several years. Among the connections he’s responsible for is the hiring of Kevin Wilson by Indiana.

Wilson doesn’t declare Willis out for the season, but says injury could end career

Indiana coach Kevin Wilson wouldn’t confirm a report from the Indiana Daily Student that junior tailback Darius Willis is definitively out for the season, but he expressed little hope of a return for the Franklin Central graduate and hinted that his injuries could be career-threatening.

Willis was the starting tailback in both 2009 and 2010 for the Hoosiers and compiled 885 yards and 10 touchdowns in those two seasons, but he’s continually battled injury. That includes a torn patella tendon in his knee that ended his season after four games last year.

Willis hasn’t practiced much since sitting out all of spring and making it in for only a handful of practices in the preseason. Wilson, who is rarely specific in describing injuries, said that Willis reaggravated the knee injury, which puts not only his season but his career in doubt.

“It could be the end of his career,” Wilson said. “It’s a recurring deal. He’s far enough along. That’s just for the doctors and his family to decide.” (more…)

Just in case you might be interested …

This release came out yesterday, so it’s not really news at this point, but figured I should pass it along.

As part of what is apparently being called “The Lockout League,” a series of games that have been scheduled between all-star teams from various summer pro-am basketball leagues, a team from the Knox Indy Pro-Am — that league the IU guys played in this summer — will play a team from the Washington D.C.-based Goodman League. Eric Gordon and D.J. White will be among the players on the Indy team, along with Lance Stephenson, Zach Randolph, Gordon Hayward, George Hill and several other NBA Players. The Goodman League team will be led by Kevin Durant and John Wall. (more…)
