A little women’s basketball update here. Indiana won its season opener Friday night at Memphis, 78-74.
The Hoosiers built a 13-point first-half lead that dwindled to six by halftime and never got back in double digits. As a matter of fact, IU fell behind by five at 73-68 with 2:41 left. But the Hoosiers rallied back for the win. The home opener is Sunday at 2 p.m. against IUPUI.
On the future Hoosier front, www.wane.com has confirmed (with picture) that Fort Wayne Concordia standout Andrea Newbauer has officially signed to play for Indiana beginning in 2010. Newbauer ranks as the No. 50 point guard in the country according to ESPN HoopGurlz.
The Hoosiers have one other scholarship available, which it appears they will use, but no confirmation on that yet. Stay tuned.
Tom Crean promised his team would run. And, man oh man, did they.
The Hoosiers used 75 possessions to score 83 points, and held Howard to just 60 in the 2009-10 season opener for both teams.
Freshmen Maurice Creek (17), Derek Elston (14) and Christian Watford (14) led the team in scoring.
Howard was 4-of-22 from behind the 3-point line.
Indiana never able to break through down the stretch, and now the wait for Monday’s NCAA Tournament selection show begins. BUCKEYES 4, HOOSIERS 2
10:13: Time continues to wind down here and IU is still searching for a goal that would get them back in this game. Indiana attacking in numbers now, but OSU defense responding in kind. BUCKEYES 4, HOOSIERS 2
21:08: At the second-half TV time out. IU has had a few chances to score again, but no luck so far. I would say IU is likely to score one more, but the two questions that begs is: Can they score a second? and Can they keep OSU from scoring? BUCKEYES 4, HOOSIERS 2
39:27: As they have all day, Ohio State has the answer. A corner kick was headed down and saved by Soffner, but Ofori Sarkodie’s clearance was blocked into the goal. BUCKEYES 4, HOOSIERS 2
41:53: That didn’t take long — again. A scrum in the box and Will Bruin runs onto the loose ball and pounds it home to cut the deficit in half for Indiana. BUCKEYES 3, HOOSIERS 2
43:01: We’re just underway in the second half. Neil Wilmarth is starting up top in place of the injured Daniel Kelly. No changes in the back for IU, but the problem is more mental than physical anyway. BUCKEYES 3, HOOSIERS 1
If this was football, Indiana would have just taken a knee to run out the first half. The IU defense was getting shredded and the offense non-existent. Hoosiers seemed to suddenly revert to mid-season form in that half. If they can pull it together at the break, the Ohio State defense hasn’t been so strong that IU can’t score enough to get back in it. But the way things are going, the final may be more like 6-3.
At one point, Rich Balchan began shouting at goalkeeper Luis Soffner, who begged to differ. That’s how frustrated the Hoosiers were before the break. BUCKEYES 3, HOOSIERS 1 (more…)
Whenever anyone puts out a press release for any reason, they presume that they’ve said all there is that needs to be said about the topic, and that the release should be sufficient for everything a reporter might need. This of course, is never the case, because people never really talk like they do in a press release, and even if they are giving out what is basically the same information, it’s more interesting to read when you know that a real person actually spoke the words with his own mouth.
Indiana media relations all-star Jeff Keag just sent out the final injury report in advance of Saturday’s game at Penn State. It, however, contains little good news for Indiana fans.
Linebacker Tyler Replogle (head), safety Austin Thomas (shoulder) and running back Darius Willis (ankle) are all still questionable. Chris Adkins (elbow) is also questionable.
