  • SPT 032914 TYLER WAMPLER.jpg ISU baseball shows mental toughness in win over Illinois State

    When the pressure’s on, there’s nothing a coach likes more than to see his team double down on their approach and grit out a positive result.

  • SPT032814 ISUBB hayes.jpg Going the distance: Redbirds ace Savas allows just five hits while shutting down Sycamores

    Indiana State’s pitchers weren’t their best in Friday’s series opener against Illinois State, but it seemed the Sycamores might get away with it. Through seven innings, ISU had issued six walks, gave up six hits and hit a batter, but still trailed by just a run. But ISU’s luck with its generosity would give out in the eighth, and even if it hadn’t, Illinois State standout starter Dan Savas had the Sycamores’ bats in a deep freeze anyway. The Redbirds defeated the Sycamores 5-2 at Bob Warn Field.

  • 13256387835_31de30fb40.jpg Devoted brothers: Mahurins relish chance to team up and win NAIA title

    It wasn’t a great year for NCAA basketball in the Hoosier state outside of Indiana State’s 23-victory season.
    But a team in NAIA Division II with eight Indiana natives — and coached by former Valparaiso point guard Greg Tonagel, an Indiana All-Star for his hometown of LaPorte — brought home a national basketball championship.
    Tonagel, the scrappy point guard who played alongside Bryce Drew for that magical Valpo team, created more March hoops memories with the help of Rockville brothers R.J. and Lane Mahurin.

  • SPT011114ISUMBB lansing.jpg FROM THE PRESS BOX: ISU never kicked down the door in 2014

    After Indiana State’s 91-71 loss Tuesday at Arkansas in the National Invitation Tournament, and in the days since, I can’t help but think of Bum Phillips and the 1980 Houston Oilers as I ponder Indiana State's 2013-14 men's basketball season.
    Stay with me.
    The Oilers had lost to the all-conquering Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1978 and 1979 AFC Championship games. Despite that, it seemed the Earl Campbell-led squad was the team of destiny to knock the Steel Curtain off their perch.
    So much so that Phillips, the wonderfully colorful Oilers coach, said the Oilers would "kick the door down", knock off their black-and-gold nemesis, and win the AFC Central in 1980.

  • Rose-Hulman rolls to 12-0 baseball win over Bluffton

    Twelve runs scored, eight hard-hit doubles, five stolen bases, three double plays and Rose-Hulman’s first home run of the season.
    There were no partridges in a pear tree for the Engineers. But they got plenty of offensive and defensive production to support sophomore right-hander Andrew Stull’s three-hit shutout — his first as a college pitcher — as they blasted Bluffton 12-0 in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference baseball action Friday at Art Nehf Field.

  • Sycamore softball leaves too many runners stranded in one-run loss

    Even though they never led in Missouri Valley Conference softball Friday at Price Field, there were several moments late in the game when victory almost seemed inevitable for the Indiana State Sycamores.
    Didn’t happen. Visiting Wichita State made the defensive plays it needed to, and ISU suffered a frustrating 3-2 loss to open a three-game series.

  • ISU loses 63-61 to Marquette in WNIT

    After a Jasmine Grier 3-pointer with four seconds on the clock cut Marquette’s lead to two points, a crazy March ending appeared possible as Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir came up with a steal with just more than a second to go Thursday in Hulman Center
    Abdul-Qaadir had momentum going toward the bucket after her steal but couldn’t get the layup off in time as the Sycamores fell in the first round of the Women’s NIT to the Big East squad, 63-61.

    In the wake of Indiana State’s 91-71 Tuesday loss to Arkansas in the National Invitation Tournament, it was obvious to everyone why ISU coach Greg Lansing feared the matchup against the Razorbacks. They just had too much for the Sycamores to handle.

    Jake Odum has started at point guard for four years at Indiana State. He can claim as much as any Sycamore — past or present — that he’s seen it all. But even Odum hasn’t seen a team attack the game and attack their opponent quite like Arkansas does.
