The losses have piled up for Purdue — three in a row on the Boilers’ record. And then, during Saturday’s practice, one more from its starting lineup.
LOUISVILLE — North Carolina got the fast start it sought against Louisville and the No. 14 Tar Heels displayed that energy in numerous areas, giving coach Roy Williams a lot to like — for the most part.
Archie Miller has said on numerous occasions in his 28-game career as the Indiana basketball coach that he had been waiting for Robert Johnson to have one of those "can’t miss" type of nights shooting the ball.
LOUISVILLE — Louisville interim coach David Padgett opened his Friday press conference with some breaking news, announcing that he won’t be following in the expensive footsteps — or clothing choices — of his predecessor, Rick Pitino
NEW ALBANY — Jamie Johnson scored 31 points as the IU Southeast men’s basketball team capped an undefeated regular-season at home with a River States Conference West-clinching 82-63 win over Cincinnati Christian on Thursday night.
I got into a back and forth on Facebook on Wednesday afternoon with an Indiana fan trying to convince me why he believed IU’s late-season run could earn the Hoosiers a trip to the NCAA Tournament in Archie Miller’s first season.
Looking for a reason Indiana was able to hold off Illinois on Wednesday night at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall? The biggest number for the Hoosiers was 38.
New Albany held on to its No. 1 position over unbeaten Warren Central in the latest IBCA single-class coaches' poll. New Albany and Warren Central each had eight of the 20 first-place votes. Third-ranked South Bend Riley (19-0) garnered the other four.
Dakota Mathias looked like a man who had just been punched in the gut. And in some ways, he had after the No. 3-ranked Boilermakers’ 68-65 loss at No. 4 Michigan State.
Michigan State coach Tom Izzo ran his hands through his hair as he paced the sidelines at Mackey Arena last year, struggling to find an answer to one of the Big Ten’s toughest questions.
BLOOMINGTON — When Indiana traveled to Minnesota in early January and knocked off the Golden Gophers, freshman forward Justin Smith played an integral role in the victory.
WEST LAFAYETTE — Coach Jeff Brohm ambled down the stairs at Purdue’s new football performance complex Wednesday afternoon to find a handful of reporters waiting for him.
The Boilermakers had just extended their NCAA-best winning streak to 19 games when senior forward Vincent Edwards took a moment to enjoy his own personal streak.
Devonte Green’s play on the offensive side of the ball in particular resulted in the sophomore guard earning his first start since Nov. 24 Monday night against Rutgers.
For the third straight game, the Boilermakers survived a scare, grinding out a win when they couldn’t rely on 3-point shooting to carry them, 78-76.
As the victories have piled up and Purdue’s winning streak has stretched to a school-record 18 games, an image of this Purdue basketball team has begun to emerge: the image of a monster.
NEW ALBANY — Annie Thomas had 14 of her 23 points in the second half, Aaliyah Bell added 12 points and Madi Woods had 10 points to lead the IU Southeast past Kentucky Christian 67-61 on Thursday.
There are seven games remaining in the regular season for Indiana. A guaranteed eighth if you count the first game in the Big Ten Tournament.
NEW ALBANY — The IU Southeast men's basketball team jumped out to a 27-2 lead and never looked back on its way to a 101-59 win over visiting IU Kokomo in a River States Conference game Tuesday night.
The routine always starts the same way. At the end of shootaround, Purdue senior forward Vincent Edwards grabs a ball from assistant coach D.J. Byrd.
LOUISVILLE — After letting its previous game slip from its grasp, Louisville got back on track with consistent scoring while its defense frequently disrupted Wake Forest's offensive flow.
LOUISVILLE — Thirty years ago, Danny Manning led Kansas to the national title, earning that team — which had the most losses of any champion — the nickname “Danny and the Miracles.”
Even though the mere thought defies any logical explanation, I won’t be surprised if Indiana finds a way to beat either No. 3 Purdue on Sunday, No. 13 Ohio State on Tuesday or No. 5 Michigan State a week from Saturday.
The script Indiana followed Wednesday night was a recipe for disaster whether the Hoosiers were playing a ranked team or one looking for its first conference win.
FLOYDS KNOBS — After leading for most of the game, Floyd Central struggled to close it out and fell 55-50 to Jennings County in a Hoosier Hill Conference contest Tuesday night.
When Juwan Morgan woke up Saturday morning, he doubted if he would be able to play Monday night against Maryland. He had missed the second half Friday night against Michigan State after suffering a high ankle sprain.
