Where they played

The court today.

I think this picture, the work of our superb photographer Chris Howell, really gives you an idea of Lucas Oil as it was arranged for today’s game.

Imagine this place in 2010 when it hosts the Final Four. The court will be situated in the middle of the field and even more temporary seating will be used to surround it. It’s hard to imagine the energy that will be in that building.

Indiana soccer update

  • The game never gets to penalty kicks, but it ends on one. Indiana is whistled in the box, and the Red Storm put away the PK for the sudden-death game-winner.
  • A late corner by Indiana goes for naught, and overtime is on the way.
  • Believe it or not, we are tied. St. John’s has just been peppering the box, and now we’re even with two minutes left in regulation.
  • With 18 minutes remaining, Eric Alexander notches a goal that really counters the intense pressure St. John’s was mounting. Hoosiers now have a goal to play with.
  • An injury break in the second half, and Indiana maintains the lead with 35:32 to play. Hoosiers just missed a couple of chances to extend the advantage moments ago.
  • It’s halftime now, and the Hoosiers are 45 minutes away from returning to the College Cup.
  • With under 10 minutes to play in the first half, Ofori Sarkodie gave Indiana a 1-0 lead over St. John’s in the NCAA quarterfinals. Sarkodie was on the receiving end of a beautiful give and go for his first goal of the season.

No. 5 Gonzaga 70, Indiana 54

Tom Crean, coaching.

Tom Crean says there are no moral victories. He can’t run his program that way because it could lead to losing ways seaping into the fabric of what he’s trying to rebuild.

But for fans and observers, today was just that. Indiana stuck with Gonzaga and played tough the entire way. Sure the turnovers are disconcerting, and many of the players attribute them to “stupid mental mistakes,” but they are hardly unusual this time of year and are to be expected from a team this young.

We’ll have more coverage in a bit.

We’re allowed to this time. That, or we’ll be ready for fisticuffs.

IU women win again

By   |   Friday, Dec. 5, 2008 - 10:27 PM   |   4 comments

The Indiana women’s basketball team was one of only four Big Ten teams to win in the Women’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

The Hoosiers rallied from nine down in the first half to win going away at Miami (Fla.) Friday night, 69-54. Amber Jackson led the way with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Former North standout Whitney Thomas added six points and nine rebounds, including her second 3-pointer of the season. That’s four victories in a row now for Coach Felisha Legette-Jack’s crew.

Good tickets still available

If you’ve got some free time tomorrow and would like to watch the Indiana basketball team continue its development against a possible Final Four team in Gonzaga, you can still get good (discounted) tickets.

And those tickets will also allow you to see Notre Dame, another team that figures to make a deep run in the tournament, against Ohio State.

That and it’s the first basketball game at Lucas Oil. Even to a cynical reporter like me, that’s cool.

Ticketmaster.com can get you some seats.

Soccer will be on the air

One item I did not get in today’s IU soccer notebook is that Saturday’s game at St. John’s will be broadcast on WGCL. That would be 1370 on your AM dial or 95.9 on your FM dial.

Chicago Fire and Big Ten Network voice Chris Doran will have the call starting at 4:45 p.m. Saturday with the game starting at 5.

There will also be a video webcast that can be accessed at www.redstormsports.com, or just clicking the link.

The ambitious fan may wish to view the game online while listening to Doran’s dulcet tones on the radio, but the lag in broadcasts may make that more like watching one of those classic kung fu movies.
