Sure you guys have heard about this already, but former Indiana verbal commitment and Bloomington South star is transferring from UCLA.
Carlino reclassified and graduated early to attend UCLA. He was supposed to be a senior at South this year.
Take it easy on this one…
Indiana (0) 18 21 20
So California (3) 25 25 25
3RD SET: USC showing killer instinct, IU looking lost forcing Dunbar to call TO. Scary thought, Stanford wiped this team out twice in Pac-10 play. IU coming back. At 15-15, USC now showing why its ranked in top 10, pounding two kills to jump-start a 5-0 run and USC rolls on into final eight. it’s the fifth time this season Hoosiers were swept, all by ranked teams outside of Purdue. IU ends 23-12.
2ND SET: Quick fact: IU 0-7 in regular season after losing first set, 2-0 in postseason. This looks more like it. IU gaining confidence, but seemingly paying for every miscue. Hoosiers had parried everything thrown at them so far, but lost it late after being tied at 17. IU is scrapping as hard as it can, but a kill off the block and an attack error ends it. Season on the line now. Back in 10 minutes.
Stats: Benson 9 kills (.353), Haverly 8 kills, Obeime 4, Marschall 3. IU hitting .110. Cox 12 digs. USC: Fonoimoana and Lauren Williams 7 kills, Jupter 6, setter Bateman 4 (with 8 digs and 2 aces). Easy to see how Trojan middles 6-4 Williams and 6-5 Alexis Olgard are hitting well over .350 for season. They just hit it straight down. USC hitting .224, 75 percent on sideouts to IU’s 59.
1ST SET: So what’s new, IU’s starting slow. At least half of USC points so far by Hoosier mistakes early. But IU looks no means overmatched so far and it tipping quite few shots at the net and libero Caitlin Cox (6 digs) is having a terrific game on the backrow. It’s just that USC is so tall with five in the regular rotation 6-2 or taller. Trojans putting up a great block, especially in the middle. But Ashley Benson is 3-for-3 so far in hitting, Jordan haverly has 4 kills, Ivie Obieime 2. In the end, USC too powerful so far and sneaky, too, with three dink kills. All-America Alex Jupiter and freshman Falyn Fonoimoana have to be as hard as anythign IU’s seen this year and with as much dipping movement as a major league slider.
Hi Jim Gordillo on line from Ohio.
What a great day in Dayton (has that ever been written before) as IU preps to take on USC in the first game of the Dayton volleyball regional.
Tip is at 4 and quite a few Hoosier fans were waiting when the doors to the UD Arena opened at 3.
The seating situation here is better than at U Gym where I sat at the end of the court and got balls hammered at us (and out computers and drinks) during warm ups. I’m just inside the baseline right across from the IU bench and we’ve had a few cross court shots bounce our way.
USC in home white, IU in crimson and cream.
IU fans out numbering USC’s group of 30 by wide margin. See if it helps.
Updates after we get going.

2ND HALF: It comes down to IU missing from outside, 1-of-20 on 3s and 19-of-59 overall. Miami outscores IU 6-0 in last minute. Davis finishes with 31 points, two short of tying a career best.
MIAMI 67, IU 61. Final.
1ST HALF: IU, with a lot of good looks but empty possessions, should have a big lead. Both teams can say the same thing, however, as the shooting and turnovers were about equal before Redhawks’ leading scorer Courtney Osborn, a Hamilton Southeastern grad, got free for a couple of wide open looks and buried them to put Miami up. Lead ballooned to 23-17. Hoosiers are getting nothing on the post as Andujar has played all but two minutes and is scoreless. The goal early seemed to be drive and dish or score, but Miami’s backed off. And IU, which was shooting just 38 percent coming in, is just 9-of-29 from the field, 1-of-10 on 3s and 2-of-6 at the line with 11 turnovers. Miami has 16 turnovers (averages 21.1), many unforced, but IU has six steals. Redhawks are 10-of-24, 3-of-9 on 3s and own backboards 21-15.
Elam has 7 points and Davis 6 for IU. Osborn is 5-of-8 for 13 points for Miami. It’s the lowest first-half output for both teams this year. Miami 25, IU 21.
Hi, Jim Gordillo here at Assembly Hall for tonight’s women’s basketball game between IU and Miami (Ohio). The Hoosiers had good luck against the Miami (Fla) volleyball team so the hoopsters will try and compete the Miami sweep. Stay tuned for updates.
IU will start Andrea McGuirt, Hope Elam, Whitney Lindsau, Danilsa Andujar and Jori Davis. Miami hit 12 of 21 3-pointers last time out against Marshall. We’ll see if that continues against IU’s active zone.
Just a few odds and ends from Thursday’s media availability:
— Bobby Capobianco will play on Saturday against Kentucky, coach Tom Crean said. He missed the last game against Savannah State because of an ankle sprain. Crean said the week off has been important in getting several players healthy.
— This Kentucky team is different, Crean said, but he also was very effusive in his praise for them. He talked in some detail about their length, and how that has made the Wildcats such a good 3-point defense team.
— Asked if the week off was beneficial, he said that’s a matter of your perspective. When IU was in a run of games close together, the coaching staff talked about getting into a rhythm (which he expects Kentucky is doing, having played Wednesday). With a week off, Crean talked to his team about getting better not just for Saturday, but for the season.
— I asked Crean about recruiting guys with realistic NBA dreams and what he wants to hear in terms of commitment. This was part of his response:
“I think the biggest key is that someone doesn’t come with their bags packed. That they come and unpack them. When you got one foot in and one foot out, or you got the car — it’s running and it’s in neutral in the parking lot. I think that’s when you run into problems.
So I don’t have any real theory on that. I think each situation is different, because each recruit is different. I think our job is to have a vision for them and a realistic vision for them. I have no doubt we have that with our recruits and our current players. And then it’s your job as a coach, a coaching staff and as an entire program to hold them to that vision, that they chose to come for that in the first place. That means Indiana first, putting their education at the top.
(On lightening academic regulations) We won’t ever do it like that. Everybody is on the same guidelines and that’s the way it’s going to be as we go down the road, because we’re going to be faced more and more of that at Indiana.”
— Jordan Hulls said the advances the team made during the offseason, becoming bigger, stronger and faster, will aid them in dealing with Kentucky’s athleticism. I asked if he remembered John Wall’s dunk last season and he said he did not (for the record, I don’t believe him).
