Chappell back at practice

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell, not listed on the club’s current injury report, was back at work during Wednesday’s practice after being held out of Tuesday’s sessions.

Chappell, who wore a walking boot to Monday’s press conference and has taken a physical pounding in recent weeks, will get some breaks from practices for the balance of the season according to coach Bill Lynch.

“We didn’t have Ben really do anything (Tuesday), on purpose — not because he couldn’t have, but we thought that was the smart thing to do,” Lynch said. “You’re going to take some hits from the defense when you’re throwing it that many times . . . and not scrambling.

“It’s just the nature of the position. You’ll take a lot of hits. He’s a big, physical guy, fortunately, and he’s really tough. But we worry about (the hits) and that’s why we’ll be smart from here on out to make sure he’s feeling good on Saturdays. Especially as much football as he’s played, as aware of the offense as he is, he’s locked in, still getting mental reps, even when he’s not going (on the practice field).”

Marc-Michel’s status being investigated

The NCAA is investigating Guy-Marc Michel’s amateur status, Indiana announced in a statement.

“Prior to attending North Idaho Community College, Guy participated in club basketball in France, where he finished high school and enrolled in some college courses,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a prepared statement. “In three years with the French club, Guy participated as a member of an amateur team. In his third year, he was “called up” for limited participation with a team that included professional players.”

Indiana anticipated an extended review of Marc-Michel’s status.

“We are hopeful for a positive resolution to Guy’s case within the coming weeks,” Crean said. “While he is not eligible to compete at this time, he will continue to improve in practice, and he’ll continue doing very well in the classroom, until the process is complete.”

Austin Etherington said that Cody Zeller was predictably low-key after his official visit, but did say one thing of interest.

“He just said he had a good time,” Etherington said. “And that’s all the really matters.”

Etherington, who befriended Zeller when the two played together for Indiana Elite Team Indiana this past AAU season, said he tries not to push Zeller.

“You just have to know who he is,” Etherington said.

Dedmond out again, five listed as questionable

Junior tight end Max Dedmond will be out of action again this week with a knee injury according to Indiana’s Tuesday injury report. Dedmond, who has five receptions for 37 yards and two touchdowns this season, injured the knee in the Illinois game, but Indiana coach Bill Lynch has said he doesn’t expect Dedmond to miss the rest of the season.

Safety Chris Adkins (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable and could finally see the lineup. He’s been out all season with his injury.

Tight end Ted Bolser has a concussion and was held out of practice Tuesday. He is also listed as questionable. So are cornerback Adrian Burks (hip), kicker Nick Freeland (hip) and safety Lenyatta Kiles (groin).

Offensive tackle James Brewer (ankle) is listed as probable again. Senior quarterback Ben Chappell did not practice on Tuesday because of his injuries, but was not listed on the injury report.

Alaska-Anchorage at IU women

Jori Davis leads IU with 16 points, Hope Elam adds 15 and Sasha Chaplin finishes with 13 rebounds as Indiana pulls away over the final few minutes. HOOSIERS 72, SEAWOLVES 49

7:57: A jumper in the lane for Andrea McGuirt and a McGuirt 3 in transition push the Indiana lead to 12. HOOSIERS 50, SEAWOLVES 38

11:58: Indiana started the half with a 10-0 run and now matches its largest lead on another Elam 3. But the bigger concern is Sasha Chaplin limping off with a leg injury just a few minutes ago. That’s something IU has seen too much of in her brief career so far. HOOSIERS 42, SEAWOLVES 33

15:42: Hope Elam hits just the second 3 of the game for Indiana to make the lead six, while Alaska has yet to score this half. HOOSIERS 34, SEAWOLVES 28

Both teams end with a bit of an offensive flourish. Jori Davis with 12 points to lead Indiana in scoring, while Sasha Chaplin has hauled down nine rebounds. But rebounding as a whole has not been a strong suit for the Hoosiers, who were outrebounded 24-18 and gave up 12 offensive rebounds. Indiana shot 29.6 percent to Alaska-Anchorage’s 32.2 percent. SEAWOLVES 28, HOOSIERS 27 (more…)
