2 Aces beat ISU’s 5 of a kind
For Evansville, it’s a big momentum boost and a three-game winning streak. For Indiana State, Sunday’s 63-56 home loss to the Purple Aces is the contrary: a dumbfounding third defeat in the past four games to teams below it in the Missouri Valley Conference women’s basketball standings.
‘Purple in the stands’ supports Riverton Parke grad Dickey
An in-state rivalry took a step up in intensity Sunday in Hulman Center as Indiana State lost for the second straight year at home to Evansville.
Odum wakes Sycamores from SIU bad dream
For as long as he’s been in the Missouri Valley Conference, Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson has been a recurring nightmare for Indiana State’s basketball team.
Hinson’s Salukis descended upon Hulman Center on Saturday. All of the horrors Hinson’s teams usually inflict upon the Sycamores swooped in with him.
Indiana State women turn up defense to shut down Salukis
Indiana State showed its loyal women’s basketball fan base some love for Valentine’s Day.
Lots of motivation today for ISU men
Indiana State endured a scary moment when Dawon Cummings suffered what turned out to be a minor knee injury at practice earlier this week.
Odum’s 27 points lift Sycamores past Bradley
Indiana State point guard Jake Odum always strives to be the quintessential point guard. Achieving that means deferring to teammates to let them get rolling.Sometimes that means Odum doesn't get himself rolling. But in Wednesday's 68-62 victory at Bradley, the senior showed what he's capable of when he makes himself the vocal point of the offense.
Metro roundup: Rose-Hulman's Strickland earns national D-III honor

ISU men travel to Bradley tonight
Bradley’s men’s basketball team had a six-point lead in Hulman Center with eight minutes to go against Indiana State a month ago.
The Missouri Valley Conference’s leader in offensive rebounds, Tyshon Pickett, helped the Braves snag 12 second-chance opportunities in that game, but ISU still pulled out the victory behind Lucas Eitel’s clutch 3-point shooting.
Metro roundup: Sycamores, UNI to be national ESPNU game
Indiana State’s final men’s home game of the college basketball season has been chosen for ESPNU’s 1 p.m. telecast on March 1. It’s Senior Day for the Sycamores.
Just good enough — for a record
Try as it might, Indiana State’s men’s basketball team could never take command against Drake on Sunday at Hulman Center.
ISU has fared well in bounce-back games
Life, as we all know, moves on. So it goes for the Indiana State men’s basketball team after its 65-58 loss to unbeaten Wichita State on Wednesday.
Have the Sycamores moved on from a game they felt they let slip out of their fingers? Not on your life.
The loss to the Shockers will stick in the Sycamores’ craw for a long time, but letting the loss linger and letting it affect preparation for today’s opponent — Drake — are two different things.
ISU women’s soccer signs eight recruits
Indiana State women’s soccer coach Erika True announced Friday the signing of eight members for the Sycamores.
“It’s a really exciting day for the Indiana State women’s soccer program as we sign these eight players to join our program,” said True, who’s in her sixth season at the helm. “We’re coming off a great season and moving in a positive direction so I know these eight will help make an impact next season.”
Wichita State defense raised its game in second half against Sycamores
There were so many defensive possessions in Indiana State’s 65-58 loss to No. 4 Wichita State that could have turned the game in the Sycamores’ favor. So many that will stick in the memory as what-ifs.
There was a shot-clock violation forced on Wichita State’s Fred Van Vleet with 2:46 left with ISU down three. Justin Gant and Manny Arop trapped the usually unflappable sophomore into a rare team turnover.
Munn-less ISU looks to elevate play
Indiana State went 7-2 in the first half of the Missouri Valley Conference women’s basketball season — coach Teri Moren’s best mark at that point in her four years with the Sycamores — but the loss at Loyola on Sunday left a bad taste with Moren and her coaching staff.
“We were so poor from start to finish at Loyola, there’s only one way that this team can go and that’s up,” Moren said after Thursday’s practice.
UPDATE: No. 4 Shockers hold off Indiana State 65-58
The deal was on the table for Indiana State. The stakes? The chance to end Wichita State’s perfect season and to earn a signature win that would earn national notice and possibly more.
Odum, Van Vleet two of Valley's best playmakers
Point guards do so many things for a basketball team, but the most important thing the best of them do is embody grace under pressure.
That grace is tested when the shot clock gets below the 10-second mark. Every decision they make takes on more urgency. The good decisions have a high reward, the bad ones can carry the weight of sinking their team.
Rising to occasion: When the poll attacks, ISU has fought back
Thirteen ranked teams have visited Hulman Center as an Indiana State opponent since it opened in 1973. Five walked away with their tails between their legs. None have reached the heights that Wednesday’s opponent — No. 4 Wichita State — have scaled. The unbeaten Shockers are the highest-ranked team to ever visit Hulman Center.
ISU’s halftime anger propels it to win over UNI
Indiana State’s men’s basketball team and coach Greg Lansing finally figured it out.
Don’t get even(-keeled). Get mad.
Only Abdul-Qaadir comes up big in ISU loss to Loyola
BiIqis Abdul-Qaadir scored a career-high 32 points Sunday, but the Indiana State women needed a lot more than that in a 71-58 Missouri Valley Conference basketball loss at Loyola.
ISU gets mad ... and then gets one over on UNI
The team that attacked last won at McLeod Center on Saturday.
In the first half, it was Northern Iowa. In the second, Indiana State found the aggressiveness it was missing at Southern Illinois and in the first half against the Panthers.
And then the Sycamores never let up.
Panthers offer ISU new look
In recent years, when Indiana State’s men’s basketball team faced Northern Iowa, you could expect two things: offense played at a turtle’s pace and an extremely tough defensive challenge. Not so anymore.
Mahan’s 23 points lead ISU women over Bradley
Four players scored in double figures to help Indiana State defeat host Bradley 80-67 in Missouri Valley Conference women’s basketball Friday evening in Renaissance Coliseum.
The late Ted Sweatt among athletes going into state’s Track Hall of Fame this weekend
Ted Sweatt’s rivals and friends remember him as a fierce competitor with a positive attitude and a loyal friend.
He was “one of the unheralded greats of our time,” according to a column written by Jimmy Claus in the Terre Haute Tribune less than a week after Sweatt’s death in Vietnam.
Hall of Fame inductee Erica Moore honed her skills in Sullivan, then at ISU
The genesis of Erica Moore’s passion for running is probably not a unique tale for women’s athletes.
The Sullivan native discovered her talent in elementary school.
ISU seniors search for answers
The questions are simple.
How does an Indiana State men’s basketball team with five upperclassmen in its starting lineup not answer the bell against a Southern Illinois team with three freshmen and four underclassmen in its starting five?
Moreover, how does Wednesday’s 79-60 loss happen to the Sycamores after they had also lost their two previous encounters at SIU against inferior Saluki teams?
ISU women’s basketball hitting road this weekend
Indiana State’s self-esteem suffered no damage after a 20-point home loss to Wichita State on Monday.
