IU women at Illinois State

After their big win over Bowling Green Thursday night, Felisha Legette-Jack’s Hoosiers will play in the WNIT quarterfinals at 3 p.m. Sunday at Illinois State.

Illinois State (26-7) defeated Marquette, 51-50, Thursday to advance to play Indiana.

IU is again sponsoring a Win Wagon to carry Hoosier fans to the game. According to IU, the cost for a seat on the Win Wagon is $20 and will include a ticket to watch the Hoosiers battle the Redbirds, along with beverages and snacks for the round trip.  The Win Wagon is scheduled to leave the North entrance of Assembly Hall at 10 a.m. on Sunday and will return to Bloomington following the game.

For more information and to purchase your Win Wagon seat, contact the IU Ticket Office at 1-866-IUSPORTS.

Story transferring to be closer to home

[7:50 Update]

A quote from Malik Story, provided by IU: “I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to play basketball at Indiana,” said Story.  “I have a tremendous amount of love and admiration for Coach Crean, the assistant coaches and my teammates. This was a very emotional decision for me, but I am blessed to have an outstanding support system in my family at home and I want to be able to share my collegiate experiences with them.”


Freshman guard Malik Story has decided to transfer from Indiana at the end of the semester so he can play at a school closer to his Los Angeles home.

Sources told The Herald-Times earlier today that Story had made the decision after discussing the situation with his family over spring break. Indiana head coach Tom Crean confirmed Story’s intent to transfer, and issued this statement through media relations director J.D. Campbell:

“I support Malik and his family’s decision to go to a school that is closer to home,” he said. “As a parent, I understand the need to be close to family. We have encouraged Malik to continue to take advantage of getting his individual workouts in with our team and to utilize the academic support system he has here at Indiana until the end of the semester.”

The Herald-Times has not yet been able to reach Story for comment.

Story’s departure opens a scholarship for the incoming 2009 class; Crean had signed six players even though only five scholarships were slated to be open.

We’ll have more as this story develops.

Help an IU athletics secretary with cancer

I wrote a story for today’s H-T about IU athletics secretary Kim Webber-Hill who has been fighting cancer since November 2007. IU’s head coaches are holding an online auction to help Kim that you can participate in by clicking here.

Here’s my story about Webber-Hill, who has bravely gone through a traumatic time and could really use some help financially that you can provide by bidding on items in the coaches’ auction.
