IU women ink 3 spring recruits

The Indiana women’s basketball program announced the official signing of 6-6 center Quaneisha McCurty (ranked 34th-best player in the nation by Blue Star Basketball), 5-8 point guard Candyce Ussery and 5-11 JUCO player of the year Jasmine McGhee Wednesday.

They join fall signees Necole Sterling and Linda Rubene to make up what is ranked as the nation’s No. 23 recruiting class according to All Star-Girls Report. Below is the official release on the trio with comments from IU coach Felisha Legette-Jack. (more…)

Bloomington South grad Price’s career ended by back problem

Aaron Price’s football career is apparently over.

The Indiana sophomore offensive lineman and Bloomington South grad has a degenerative condition in his back, IU coach Kevin Wilson said, and will seek to be classified as a medical non-counter. Price will continue to receive his scholarship at Indiana, but will no longer participate in football and will not count against Indiana’s limit of 85 scholarships.

“He’s got some degeneration medically in the back where it just couldn’t hold up,” Wilson said. “It was a concern through winter, but he did a great job in the winter. He actually came out in the first week in spring, but it started going south on him. Just long-term health, it’s not in his best interest… He was doing well, but he does have a major issue with a major part of his body. He tried. Local kid. No issues from us. It just health-wise couldn’t hold up. It’s unfortunate for him.”

Price started the first 10 games of last season at left guard and played in all 12 games. The 6-foot-4, 288-pounder was an All-State pick at South.

In other notes from Tuesday’s availability session, Wilson said the spring game will not have split up rosters, but will first team offense against first team defense and second team offense and second team defense. For purposes of scoring, the first team offense and second-team defense will essentially be a team as will first team defense and second team offense. Players will switch from team to team, however.

Notes from spring football teleconference, Day 1

The Big Ten is giving the media the opportunity to check in with the league’s football coaches and selected players today and tomorrow via teleconference. Today, the teams in the Legends Division (we’re just going to have to get used to that now) were represented. Tomorrow is the Leaders, which includes Indiana.

Some notes from today.

  • Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he’s happy with the progress he’s seen from a team that once again finds itself in transition. This Wolverine squad will use more downhill, power running than it did under spread offense aficionado Rich Rodriguez and it’s switching from a three-man front to a four-man front on defense, but Hoke thinks his players are picking things up quickly. “Our seniors have done a great job in their leadership,” Hoke said. “They’re being an example for the rest of the team.” (more…)

Fever draft Jori Davis

Indiana senior guard Jori Davis was selected by the Indiana Fever with the No. 33 overall pick in the third round of the WNBA Draft Monday afternoon.

Davis, who averaged 19.5 points and 5.6 rebounds en route to second team all-Big Ten honors in 2010-11, becomes just the third Hoosier ever drafted. She joins Quacy Barnes, the No. 22 overall pick of the Sacramento Monarchs in 1998, and Jill Chapman, the No. 21 overall pick of the Detroit Shock in 2002.
