This past summer was a busy one for first-year Indiana State women's basketball coach Vicki Hall and her staff — Quacy Barnes-Timmons, Roman Tubner and Luke Scheidecker.

It was bound to happen. For years after debuting in 1995-96, the Rose-Hulman women's basketball program struggled. That meant the institute's men's basketball teams generally earned a brighter spotlight ... until the past three years when the female Engineers posted a combined record of 71-12 and received two NCAA Division III tournament berths.

Indiana State shot an amazing 70 percent from the field in the fourth quarter and outscored host Saint Louis by more than double in that final frame to overcome a 11-point fourth quarter deficit for a 60-56 win over the Billikens at Chaifetz Arena Tuesday.

The Tigers did that Monday, which led to a 62-point opening night victory, and proceeded to carry it into the opening game of the third annual North American Lighting Thanksgiving tournament hosted by Paris High School with a 59-31 victory over Terre Haute North after scoring the first 24 points of the game.

Indiana State freshman Blake Brinkmeyer is thrilled to be on the court with any minutes at this point in the season, especially considering the 6-foot-9 big man is ahead of a timetable that projected him to not be on the floor for several more weeks after suffering a partially-torn patellar tendon injury that required surgery.

Paris scored the game's first 24 points en route to beating Terre Haute North 59-31 in a girls high school basketball game Tuesday night.

The Terre Haute South girls’ basketball team fell 67-31 Tuesday night in a matchup with a high-powered Avon team (4-0).

Paris had a close first quarter of girls high school basketball against visiting Cumberland on Monday in the season opener for both teams, but allowed just eight points over the last three quarters in rolling to an 81-19 victory.

Victorious in their season opener last week, Indiana State's women face a different kind of college basketball test tonight when they visit Chaifetz Arena for a 5:30 p.m. matchup with Saint Louis University.

Indiana State's four-game football winning streak and 28-23 win Saturday over previously ranked Illinois State has paid off with its first top-25 ranking in two years as the Sycamores checked in at No. 24 in the American Football Coaches Association poll.

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods stayed alive with a fourth-set victory Saturday afternoon, but eventually fell 25-17, 25-15, 21-25, 25-22 to Florida National to finish in a familiar spot in the USCAA national volleyball championship.

Rose-Hulman honored 22 seniors and scored touchdowns on its first seven possessions Saturday to capture a 70-6 victory over Earlham in the 2018 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference football finale for both schools at Cook Stadium.

Indiana State's Akis Medrano has received one of the four Great Lakes Region at-large bids and will represent the Sycamores next Saturday at the NCAA Cross Country Championships at Madison, Wis.

Two teams with a lot to play for meet at 1 p.m. today at Memorial Stadium, with Illinois State providing the opposition for Indiana State's last home game of the 2018 season. The Sycamores come into the game with a 5-4 record and a three-game winning

Early on in every high school sports season, there are ups and downs and everything in between.

The North Central rushing attack heads into the school's first regional game tonight at North Vermillion as the Indiana leader in rushing yards per game, according to www.maxpreps.com, at 389.3 yards per game.

Generally speaking, when an athletic team is assigned to a tournament to face the host school in its first game, it's not a good sign. Rose-Hulman's volleyball team plans to defy that conventional wisdom at 8 p.m. Friday at Rome, Ga., when the Engineers face Berry in the last of four first-round NCAA Division III Tournament matches at the eight-team Berry Regional.

Sisson, from a continued love of swimming, led her to competing year around for the Terre Haute Torpedoes, which she has done for several seasons. This required many miles for the family driving back and forth from Marshall to Terre Haute and sometimes required a little extra time for early morning practices. A 7 a.m. practice means arriving to the pool 6 a.m. Central Time.

So long as Indiana State’s men’s basketball team could match Ball State grind-for-grind as far as defense was concerned? The Sycamores were able to go toe-to-toe with the Cardinals. That was born in a halftime deadlockMaintaining that defensive inten

With just under 30 seconds left in the first half of girls high school basketball action at Terre Haute South between West Vigo and the host Braves, Makayla Sweitzer put back a layup to cut the visitors’ deficit to seven points in a tightly-played first half.

According to Conference Indiana officials, Terre Haute South senior kicker Orian Roshel is believed to be the first female to earn all-league honors. Roshel, one of five Braves to earn first-team All-Conference Indiana honors, made 30 of 32 extra-point attempts and was 5 for 7 on field-goal attempts, with a long of 42 yards.
