Record night for IU women

Kim Roberson became IU’s career leader in steals, Jori Davis scored a career-high 25 points and the Hoosiers shot 78.6 percent on 3s (11-of-14) to set a school record for 3-point percentage in a game.

It all added up to an 85-67 win at Northwestern Thursday night in Indiana’s final road game of the regular season. The Hoosiers (17-8, 10-6) needed all of that, trailing by 3 with 12 minutes to go before a 22-8 run over the next nine minutes broke the game open.

IU women at Northwestern: Discuss it there

I won’t be at tonight’s game in Evanston, Ill., but the IDS’ Jeremy Rosenthal will. He will be hosting a live in-game chat and updates on his Above the Rim blog. Click the link to join, and I’ll check in a few times to see how the Hoosiers are doing in their final regular-season road game.

You’ve got questions …

I’ve got answers, maybe. I’ll be joining in this week’s IU sports chat on Thursday at 11 a.m. with the intention of taking on any IU soccer or women’s basketball questions you may have. Click here to submit a question or join the discussion on Thursday.

Dumes will play against Wisconsin

Devan Dumes has served his time.

The junior guard will return to Indiana’s lineup Thursday night against Wisconsin.

Dumes, who leads the team in scoring, missed the last two games as a punishment for several elbowing incidents that occurred against Michigan State.

“We think we’ve covered the ground that needed to be covered,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said after practice today.

Live audio of Bloomington South-Detroit Country Day

Here’s a heads-up on our coverage for Saturday’s big Bloomington South (17-0)/Detroit Country Day (18-0) game that will offer by far the biggest challenge IU recruit Jordan Hulls and his South teammates have faced this season.

Thanks to WGCL, HTO will be able to provide a live audio feed of WGCL’s broadcast of the game. What this means is that anyone who can’t make it to the game or to the radio can listen to all the action on HTO. Brought to you by and We’ll have a link to that coverage here on

The pre-game broadcast will start at 4:05 p.m. Saturday, with tip-off at 4:30, so you can catch this game immediately after IU’s 2 p.m. game at Purdue.

H. Williams Kellenberger and I will both be at the game, and our live coverage will include Hugh’s Twitter feed of stats and updates (available on the lefthand side of Quick Hits, or as txt updates on your cell phone) and a live, in-game chat with fans, similar to our live game chats.

We’ll have more, of course, but this is the immediate, live game coverage. Thanks to our partners at WGCL for helping to make this live audio feed happen.

As you may know, USA Today’s rankings this week have Detroit Country Day ranked No. 4 in the country and Bloomington South No. 5. I don’t put a lot of stock on national high school rankings, but having two teams listed in the Top 5 has added a lot of interest to this game. The last of the tickets for the game sold out today.

ESPN, which has named the game its national high school game of the week, provides a run-down on Detroit Country Day’s imposing starting lineup: 6-foot-11 DaShonte Riley, 6-8 Donnovan Kirk (signed with Miami) and 6-5 Jordan Dumars (South Florida), Bennie Sowler (Michigan State for football) and 6-1 junior Ray McCallum.
