Illinois at Indiana women

Illinois’ Fabiola Josil has her 3-pointer rim in and out at the buzzer and Indiana comes away with a thrilling victory — not to mention a much-needed one — to even the Hoosiers’ Big Ten record at 2-2. HOOSIERS 50, ILLINI 48

0:2.7: This time Braun loops in the lefty runner to give IU its first lead of the second half. HOOSIERS 50, ILLINI 48

0:6.7: Braun has a layup blocked out of bounds, and it is IU basketball with just a few seconds between us and overtime. ILLINI 48, HOOSIERS 48

1:33: Jamie Braun’s 25-footer from straightaway ties us up once again. ILLINI 48, HOOSIERS 48

3:57: We were tied at 39, 41 and 43, but Indiana just cannot get over the hump to this point. Whitney Lindsey at the line when play resumes. ILLINI 46, HOOSIERS 43

7:04: Indiana tied it on a basket by Jori Davis and had a Davis 3 rattle in and out for the lead, but Illinois got the rebound and scored to reclaim the lead. IU has not led since it was 12-10 in the first half. ILLINI 41, HOOSIERS 39

The Big Ten is really proud of itself

Rose Bowl Ohio St Oregon Football

My dad was born in Wisconsin. He moved to California at a young age. He grew up believing the Rose Bowl was the only bowl game. Even now, it is really the only one he gives a damn about.

But even he doubts the Big Ten. When we were talking a few weeks ago about the bowl games, he said, “The Big Ten has always sucked in the bowls. Always will.”

Well to my dad and the millions of Americans who have lived by the three truths — death, taxes and the Big Ten falling apart during a NCAA postseason — the Big Ten says, “No more.”

Because, well, the Big Ten went 4-3 this bowl season. Won the Rose Bowl for the first time since 2000. And the conference is proud. Damn proud. So proud it’s going to air all four wins — and a fifth game in which it came really, really close — on the Big Ten Network during the coming days.

So enjoy it, Big Ten fans. Because 4-3 is better than 3-4. (more…)

Thursday chattage, 11 a.m.

Knowing my luck, chattage is actually some sort of naughty French word. But really, I was just adding a nifty couple of letters to a normal word to try to jazz it up a bit. Because our discussions are nothing if not jazzy.

IU’s offense anemic in loss to Ohio State

COLUMBUS, Ohio — After a nearly flawless offensive effort in last Thursday’s win over Michigan, Indiana displayed perhaps its ugliest of the year against Ohio State.

The Hoosiers committed 24 turnovers, including 14 in the first half in a 79-54 blowout loss to Ohio State in front of 13,712 at Value City Arena. With about five minutes left in the first half, Indiana had more turnovers (12) than points (8).

When they did manage to get through an offensive possession without turning it over, they weren’t much more successful. They shot 34 percent (18-for-53) from the field and 22.2 percent (4-for-18) from beyond the 3-point arc.

Ohio State junior guard Jon Diebler scored 21 points and sophomore William Buford had 16. Junior guard Evan Turner battled foul trouble in his return from broken vertebra in his back, but still managed eight points, five assists and four rebounds.

We’ll have audio shortly.
