Tough loss for Indiana tonight after rallying from nine down to take the lead, only to see Illinois have an answer. Amber Moore’s career night (27 points) a big part of that equation.
Three Hoosiers in double figures, led by Hope Elam’s 19. Jori Davis with 16 and Alisha Goodwin 14. ILLINI 74, HOOSIERS 67
0:47: Indiana has not been able to do anything as Illinois reasserts itself, including a runner by Amber Moore to give her 27 points. ILLINI 69, HOOSIERS 65
3:10: Indiana took its first lead at 56-54 and eventually led 61-57, but that lasted just two possessions before the game was tied again. However, Karisma Penn just fouled out fouling Jori Davis on a 3-point attempt. She leaves with 16 points and 9 rebounds. ILLINI 61, HOOSIERS 61
7:44: Indiana finally made its move with an 11-2 run to tie the game at 48. Lineup that got things going was Jori Davis, Andrea Newbauer, Simone Deloach, Aulani Sinclair and Alisha Goodwin. ILLINI 50, HOOSIERS 50
11:48: Simone Deloach and Andrea Newbauer just making their first appearances of the game as IU searches for a spark. Illinois leads by seven, matching its largest lead of the game. ILLINI 44, HOOSIERS 37
14:37: Illinois getting some easy baskets in transition to go with Amber Moore’s unconscious shooting take a seven-point lead on several occasions. Indiana has got to pick it up or another loss is heading their way. ILLINI 41, HOOSIERS 35
Illinois took a seven-point lead, but IU closed the half with a 5-0 run on a Jori Davis 3 and an Alisha Goodwin runner. The latter came after an offensive rebound by Milika Taufa, her second in the final minute. Davis’ 3 was her first basket of the game. Hoosiers are 5-of-17 from 3 and 5-of-13 inside the arc.
Illlinois had just three players score in the first half. Amber Moore has 12 on four 3s, Karisma Penn has 10 and Macie Blinn 7. Illini are 5-of-12 on 3s, above their season average of 33 percent. ILLINI 29, HOOSIERS 27
Indiana has added former Michigan quarterbacks coach Rod Smith to coach QB’s and be co-offensive coordinator with wide receivers coach Kevin Johns. Michigan offensive line coach Greg Frey has been added to coach the offensive line, and Jerry Montgomery has been hired from Wyoming. He will coach defensive tackles. Mark Hagen, who was originally supposed to coach defensive tackles, will coach the ends.
This means IU needs just one more assistant, a running backs coach.
The release follows. (more…)
We got a hold of Kevin Wilson’s memorandum of understanding, which apparently has not yet been committed to a formal contract. Some of these details were already reported by Lamond Pope of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. Some weren’t. They follow.
The Major League Soccer 2011 SuperDraft started at noon on ESPN2, but Indiana’s Will Bruin finally heard his name called just before 1 o’clock.
Bruin was drafted No. 11 overall by the Houston Dynamo, who traded up to get that spot. The No. 11 pick started the day in the hands of Seattle, was traded to Portland and then to Houston at the last minute.
Bruin was expected to go in the top five, possibly as high as No. 3 overall, but some surprising moves by teams at the top of the draft left Bruin waiting and waiting.
IU teammate Rich Balchan had the opposite experience. Largely expected to go in the second round, Balchan followed right behind Bruin, getting drafted by the Columbus Crew at No. 12 overall. Former Hoosier Danny O’Rourke is also on the Crew roster.
4:15 p.m. UPDATE
Just got off the phone with Will Bruin from Baltimore. He admitted to feeling like Aaron Rodgers as he slid down the draft board but was happy with the end result.
“It was definitely a good experience, nerve-wracking, but it worked out in end. You hear a bunch of things from different people, and nothing ever goes according to plan.”
