Indiana to play at Boston College in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

A source confirms that Indiana will play at Boston College in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge this coming season.

The Eagles finished 15-16 least season, 6-10 in the ACC before firing head coach Al Skinner and hiring Steve Donahue from Cornell. The Eagles graduate just one senior and return their top three scorers, but also lose several players to transfers.

An official announcement and dates and times are expected later this week.

Harris, Thomas will be at May Classic

The latest team list for this weekend’s Adidas May Classic includes the teams of two top prospects.

D3 Heat 2012 (Gary Harris) and Queen City Prophets (Aaron Thomas) will both be in the 17U field. That means Harris, a rising junior, is playing “up” a year.

The pools and schedule are supposed to be released this evening. When they are, we’ll post them here and, before the tournament begins, post an IU prospect-focused schedule.

Here is a link to the May Classic website.

Say Aloha to Taufa

An IU press release today announced that the Indiana women’s basketball team has signed 6-foot forward Milika Taufa of Lahaina, Hawaii to a letter of intent for the 2010-11 season.

Taufa averaged 15.3 points and 9.1 rebounds in leading Lahainaluna High School to the Hawaii Division I state championship. She scored 26 points in the title game and rallied her team from 11 down with a minute to play in the third quarter with 15 minutes in the final nine minutes. She also had nine rebounds and five blocks to earn Most Outstanding Player honors.

Here’s video of Taufa from the 2009 state tournament. The best part comes at the :41-second mark when she levels an opponent with a screen, then rolls to the free-throw line and knocks down the 15-footer as the buzzer sounds to end the quarter.

Roberts keeping IU in top 3

As D’Angelo Roberts’ recruitment continues to gain momentum, the North running back continues to hold in high esteem the school that offered him his first scholarship.

Indiana remains in Roberts’ top three, the junior wrote in a text message Monday afternoon.

Roberts declined to name the other two schools.

Indiana offered Roberts on Oct. 13. He was the first junior that the Hoosiers extended a scholarship invitation to.

Since then, he has kept Indiana high on his list, even as schools with grander traditions became interested in the record-setting back.

Eight Big Ten schools (the lone exceptions being Ohio State, Northwestern and Illinois), Florida, Ball State, Western Michigan and Western Kentucky have all been on North’s campus in recent weeks.

Ohio State and Illinois have expressed interest in Roberts previously (he went on an unofficial visit to Champaign, Ill. last fall).

I will link to the rest of this story in tomorrow’s Hoosier Morning.

Sabourin added to Olerud Award watch list

Indiana first baseman Jerrud Sabourin has been named to the John Olerud Award watch list for the best two-way player in college baseball (two-way meaning he pitches at times). I know there’s not a huge amount of IU baseball interest on this blog, but I simply find it interesting that they named an award after John Olerud. (more…)
