  • 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
