Minnesota 12, Indiana 5 (Final)

Evan Crawford comes through with a RBI-double, and Chris Hervey’s fielder’s choice drove in a run, and Jake Dunning’s shot up the middle scored Crawford. But that was it.

Minnesota 12, Indiana 2 (Heading to the Bottom of the Ninth)

Derek McCallum drove in A.J. Pettersen with a towering shot to left field.

Pettersen had gotten himself into scoring position by dashing for second base when Leieninger wheeled and thought about throwing to first for the pick off. By the time Leieninger threw to first and Sabourin threw to second it was too late.

After the McCallum shot, pinch hitter Jon Hummel rocketed a line drive over the left field wall. This is a dude who has had seven hits this year; two of them have been home runs.

Story transferring to be closer to home

[7:50 Update]

A quote from Malik Story, provided by IU: “I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to play basketball at Indiana,” said Story.  “I have a tremendous amount of love and admiration for Coach Crean, the assistant coaches and my teammates. This was a very emotional decision for me, but I am blessed to have an outstanding support system in my family at home and I want to be able to share my collegiate experiences with them.”

Freshman guard Malik Story has decided to transfer from Indiana at the end of the semester so he can play at a school closer to his Los Angeles home.

Sources told The Herald-Times earlier today that Story had made the decision after discussing the situation with his family over spring break. Indiana head coach Tom Crean confirmed Story’s intent to transfer, and issued this statement through media relations director J.D. Campbell:

“I support Malik and his family’s decision to go to a school that is closer to home,” he said. “As a parent, I understand the need to be close to family. We have encouraged Malik to continue to take advantage of getting his individual workouts in with our team and to utilize the academic support system he has here at Indiana until the end of the semester.”

The Herald-Times has not yet been able to reach Story for comment.

Story’s departure opens a scholarship for the incoming 2009 class; Crean had signed six players even though only five scholarships were slated to be open.

We’ll have more as this story develops.
