The latest on Dumes

By   |   Thursday, Mar. 12, 2009 - 11:38 AM   |   2 comments

Heard from a few sources in Indy this morning that Devan Dumes was at Indiana’s shoot around but did not partake in any vigorous activity.

Heard from an official team source that he is still being evaluated and a final decision on his availability for today’s 5 p.m. game against Penn State won’t be made until much closer to 4 p.m.

Dumes, Indiana’s leading scorer and best on-ball defender, has missed most of the last two games after injuring his knee early in the Michigan State game on March 3.

AAU and agents

By   |   Wednesday, Mar. 11, 2009 - 1:47 PM   |   3 comments

Another interesting story from the Yahoo team of Dan Wetzel and Josh Peter, who’ve been discussed on this blog before.

In this installment, they explore the ways sports agents are attempting to buy influence with AAU coaches.

Specifically, they explore one interaction between a New York-based agency and the So-Cal All-Stars, a prominent program that annualy produces multiple Division I players (including Malik Story, who is mentioned in the story.)

It’s worth a read.



IU women outside looking in?

By   |   Tuesday, Mar. 10, 2009 - 7:22 PM   |   2 comments

That’s the prediction of two “bracketologists” right now, and with only a few conference tournaments remaining, not much is likely to change.

Both ESPN.com’s Charlie Creme and CollegeRPI.com’s Jerry Palm list the Hoosiers as one of the last four teams out of the field of 64. That means the Hoosiers are close enough that the committe could surprise the experts, but it looks like heartbreak. Both men have five teams getting in from the Big Ten, with Minnesota one of the last four in the tournament. IU (19-10) and Minnesota (19-11) tied at 11-7 in the Big Ten, but the Gophers won the only head-to-head matchup in Minneapolis.

Other tournaments haven’t gone IU’s way either with third-seeded Charlotte a surprise winner in the Atlantic 10 and Central Florida winning Conference USA as a five seed. That’s at least one and maybe two spots lost that might have gone to IU.

The NCAA women’s selection show airs Monday night at 7 p.m. on ESPN. Indiana fans are invited to a selection show party with the team at Coaches Bar & Grill from 6-8 p.m. Monday night.



Dumes still questionable

This just in from Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean regarding the status of leading scorer Devan Dumes’ availability for Thursday’s Big Ten Tournament game against Penn State:

“I’m not overly hopeful, but at the same time we’re not ruling him out. We just have to see how he heals up over the next few days and see what happens.”
