The happenings beside The Hall

Construction continues on the basketball development center next to Assembly Hall, as you can see from this picture taken early Saturday morning.

Up, up, up.

Also receiving votes

The Indiana women’s basketball team made a national debut of sorts Monday, receiving votes in the AP Top 25 poll for the first time this season. The Hoosiers (10-2), now with a nine-game winning streak, got seven votes from the pollsters, good for No. 30 this week.

The only Big Ten team ranked is Ohio State at No. 16. The Buckeyes are 12-2 overall and tied with IU at 3-0 in the conference. No other league teams got votes.

Iowa at IU women

Not much to say really, just a dominant performance that keeps Indiana tied for first in the Big Ten as they get ready for a two-game road trip this week.

7:13, SECOND HALF: Megan Skouby now has 13 points for Iowa, but they are way too little, too late. The Hawkeyes have made this much more of a halfcourt game, but have gotten no closer than 21. HOOSIERS 62, HAWKEYES 39

11:33, SECOND HALF: Jamie Braun, Kim Roberson, even Ashlee Mells, keep the Indiana line moving as Iowa just cannot dent the lead despite some better play here in the second half. HOOSIERS 58, HAWKEYES 32

15:59, SECOND HALF: Whitney Thomas adds another 18-footer, but she also has picked up her third and fourth fouls. Iowa has definitely turned up the intensity to start this half, and is looking to get the ball to the 6-6 Skouby, who missed much of the first half with her own foul trouble. HOOSIERS 50, HAWKEYES 26

19:45, SECOND HALF: Whitney Thomas hits a short jumper to start the second half for her 1,000th and 1,001st career points as Indiana continues to dominate. HOOSIERS 44, HAWKEYES 17

Indiana outscores Iowa 14-2 over the final 4:29 of the first half, and this has become a full-fledged beatdown.

Glass used last two months to start his work

A story from today’s paper:

Kyle Hornsby and Fred Glass

IOWA CITY, Iowa — On his desk in Assembly Hall — which he set up on Friday, his first official day of work — Indiana athletic director Fred Glass has a two-page outline of things he’d like to accomplish first.

“But I’m so obsessive about it,” he said Saturday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, where he watched the men’s basketball team lose 65-60 to Iowa, “that I’ve highlighted the things on that list that are most important to me.”

Glass’ goals have not diverged from the ones he stated during his introduction on Oct. 29. After meeting with more than 140 people over the last two months, though, he now has a better idea of how he plans to ensure that Indiana once again becomes synonymous with NCAA rules compliance, continues a record of academic achievement and expands on its history of athletic excellence.

“It was just an amazing experience,” he said. “And a luxury. I knew that during the last two months I would have an opportunity that I wouldn’t have again once I was dealing with the minutia of running the department.”

New Indiana athletic director Fred Glass in in Iowa City accompanying the basketball team.

Former Hoosier Kyle Hornsby is with the team, too. He’s nearing completion of medical school and is, as you’d expect, hanging out with team physician Larry Rink.
