IU basketball media day

Two open events coming, Crean says:

An open scrimmage after the Northwestern game, and the “Haunted Hall of Hoops” on Halloween.

———-

“I don’t look at Indiana as a place that has fair-weather fans.”

That’s what Crean believed before he even got here, he says. And he’s realizing that even more now. So he hopes that fans will stick with the team through what inevitably will be an arduous season.

Speed soccer

The Indiana men’s soccer team recorded the fastest goal in school history Tuesday night at Butler when Daniel Kelly scored just 11 seconds into the game en route to a 2-0 IU win.

The previous record was 16 seconds, set just a few days over 26 years ago by Mike Hyella against St. Louis on Oct. 2, 1982.

The Butler goalkeeper misplayed a pass back to him and Kelly took advantage. My guess is that Kelly’s record will likely stand 26 years and then some.



Porter out after wrist surgery

UPDATE: The Saints have put Tracy Porter on the injured reserve list, meaning that after a fast start to his NFL career this season, now he’s out of the year.

——————–

From the Associated Press:

METAIRIE, La. — New Orleans Saints cornerback Tracy Porter underwent surgery on what coach Sean Payton described as a dislocated right wrist, but it was not clear Tuesday how long the rookie starter would be out.

“He had a procedure to put it back in place,” Payton said. “I don’t want to speculate, but I know the procedure went well.”

Porter hurt the wrist while attempting to defend a desperation heave by Minnesota’s Gus Frerotte on Monday night. Bernard Berrian caught the pass for the tying touchdown as he collided with teammate Aundrae Allison, Porter and Saints safety Josh Bullocks near the goal line. The Vikings went on to win, 30-27.

Defensive backs sometimes play with soft casts after similar injuries, but Payton did not sound optimistic about Porter’s chances of returning for Sunday’s game against Oakland.

“It required surgery to get it back in place, which is not good,” Payton said.

Porter was the Saints’ second-round draft pick last spring and won the starting job in training camp. Through the first five games of the season, he’s been credited with 25 tackles, including a sack, to go with one interception and five passes defended.
