Want free tickets to the Missouri Valley Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments next year?

All you have to do is come up with a new name for Indiana State’s student section in Hulman Center.

Indiana State is accepting nominations. Send ideas to assistant director of athletics John Sherman at jsherman1@isugw.indstate.edu.

Sherman is accepting ideas through the end of April. A committee of representatives of the athletics staff, coaches and student leaders will narrow the ideas down to five final choices. All fans of ISU basketball will then be able to vote in an online poll before next season.

• Rosselli, Reberger excel at VU — At Vincennes, Vincennes University posted its first win in five years over visiting Lake Land College (Ill.), winning both games of a doubleheader Monday.

In the first game, freshman John Rosselli’s two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning gave VU a 2-1 lead and the Blazers added single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to preserve the win.

In the second game, the VU winning runs came in the bottom of the sixth after freshman John Reberger, a Northview graduate, led off with a pinch-hit single and Rosselli, a Terre Haute North High School graduate, hit his second home run of the day.

“Rosselli swung the bat extremely well today,” said first-year coach Jon Adams. “And I was really pleased with Reberger’s pinch-hit single to lead off the sixth in game two.

“I talk a lot to the kids about their roles and I’ve told John that one of his is to come off the bench and get big hits. Today, he took that role seriously.”
