RAMBLIN’ RECK: With the Super Bowl done, it’s time to focus on hoops

TERRE HAUTE — Now that the Super Bowl has been played, it’s time for what could be some super basketball games.

We’ll begin with Creighton’s visit to Hulman Center on Wednesday to play Indiana State. The Sycamores will be on the rebound from Saturday’s tough loss at Drake and will seek their fourth victory over a ranked, conference-leading team.

ISU also will take on Southern Illinois on Saturday in Hulman Center.

The ISU women got a split in road games last week and will be at home for a pair this week. The Sycamores hope to get back into the first division of the Missouri Valley Conference with a good homestand.

Rose-Hulman’s men’s team continues to win and has a home game against Franklin on Wednesday.

The Indiana Pacers were faced with playing three straight nights beginning with Monday’s game against Chicago — a makeup deal. They will be at home against Atlanta tonight and go to Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Indiana is coming off a big win at Purdue and a super big win against Michigan and will be at Illinois on Thursday. This is a game the Hoosiers should win, but the Illini will be anxious to get things turned around after losing their fourth straight home game against Wisconsin on Sunday to fall to 2-7 in the Big Ten, having lost six of their past seven games.

Indiana and Illinois high school girls teams all have big games with postseason play beginning Monday in Illinois. Terre Haute North and South both play tonight in the South 4A Sectional and West Vigo takes on Greencastle at Brown County in Class 3A action.

Sullivan defeated Owen Valley last week to win the Western Indiana Conference girls title. One of the top first-round sectional games is slated for Wednesday with Sullivan facing Eastern in 2A action at Sullivan.

Meanwhile, the Sullivan boys can clinch no worse than a tie for the Western Indiana Conference championship by winning at West Vigo on Thursday.
