I’m at Bill Armstrong Stadium for some spring soccer this evening. We’ve got 30 minutes left to go between Indiana and IUPUI, but so far tonight, no goals in 150 minutes of soccer.
The Hoosiers are playing a 3-5-2 formation this spring after playing a 4-4-2 last fall. In the first game vs. Cincinnati, the IU lineup was: Will Bruin and Alex Purdie at forward; Darren Yeagle, Eric Alexander, Andy Adlard, Nick Blevins and Lee Hagedorn at midfield; Caleb Konstanski, Tommy Meyer and Cameron Jordan in back with goalkeeper Luis Soffner.
In the second game, IU started: forwards Neil Wilmarth and Tim Wylie; midfielders Tyler McCarroll, Joe Tolen, Alex Boler, Adlard and Max Weston; defenders Chris Haffner, Ofori Sarkodie and Daniel Kelly with goalkeeper Nate Mitchell.
I’ll have a story about the Hoosiers spring progress in a few days, but right now I’d just like to see somebody score a goal.
UPDATE: It was a perfect night – 180 minutes with no goals.
Indiana freshman guard Nick Williams has decided to seek a transfer and will not return to the program.
His departure has been the subject of message board chatter for a few weeks, but Williams and coach Tom Crean continued to discussing the matter before deciding that it would be best if Williams, who was not pleased with his role last season, moved on.
Former IU women’s basketball player Leah Enterline has been named the new girls’ basketball coach at Southport High School according to the Indianapolis Star.
Leah is the older sister of current Hoosier Lindsay Enterline, who just completed her freshman season. Leah played her final season at IU under current Indiana coach Felisha Legette-Jack.
… and still trying to figure it out.
Indiana women’s basketball assistant coach Marc Wilson is leaving the program. His contract was not renewed. I’ll have more on this later this week.
While we’re on the subject of women’s basketball, IU recruits continue to garner postseason honors. Sasha Bernard, a 5-foot-6 point guard from Delray Beach, Fla., earned first team all-state honors after averaging 15.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game.
Jasmine Davis, a 6-foot-2 forward from Massac County High School in Metropolis, Ill., was an Associated Press and Illinois Basketball Coaches Association First Team All-State honoree as well. She set the single season mark in rebounds and recorded the most double-doubles in school history.
From NBC’s new show, “Parks and Recreation.” It’s set in Pawnee, Ind. and it’s about, apparently, the parks and recreation department in the fictional small town. Amy Poehler stars, and I’ve seen one guy in the commercials that I recognize and remember being pretty funny.
But, it is comedy. And Indiana. And that usually equals Bob Knight.
We all knew this weeks ago, and I got confirmation on Thursday. But the Indianapolis Star is really high on being the “first” to report it, so we could not publish anything until this morning’s paper.
What was once a really tight race between Hulls, Derek Elston, D.J. Byrd and Stephan Van Treese became an absolute wipeout.
Hulls received 131 votes from high school coaches and members of the media. Rochester’s Bruce Grimm Jr. was next, with 26.
Then Elston with 18, Byrd with 16 and Marion’s Scott Wood with 15. Some 20 other guys received 12 votes or less, and I’d like names on those votes because, for the life of me, I cannot name 20 guys worthy of winning Mr. Basketball after the top five. That’s some funny business.
But, back to Hulls. He took the award like I expected him to, with grace and reverence for what it means to be forever linked to names like Greg Oden, Eric Gordon, Damon Bailey and Kent Benson.
I was amused, this morning, to find out that Larry Bird did not win Mr. Basketball. Steve Collier, of Southwestern, did â€” he went to Cincinnati and was not drafted into the NBA or ABA. Oops.
A few days ago, I said I voted for Hulls. This is why.
