A home in Fort Wayne, Ind., has become the envy of Indiana Hoosiers fans everywhere thanks to its amazing Christmas lights display. The home has an elaborate lights display that is coordinated to the first few seconds of the school’s fight song, followed by the radio play-by-play call of Christian Watford’s memorable buzzer-beater that helped the Hoosiers top No. 1-ranked Kentucky...

So far, our sports-related Christmas updates have been pretty weird. We’ve featured pro wrestlers (both foreign and domestic) singing Christmas carols, the NBA inspiring hate for their CGI ‘Carol Of The Bells’ commercial and the Boston Red Sox trying to sell season tickets with rehashed Christmas Vacation jokes. And now, because the quest to be the weirdest Christmas update...
Associate head coach Tim Buckley, redshirt junior Maurice Creek and sophomore Cody Zeller met with the media this afternoon to preview Indiana’s meeting tomorrow with Central Connecticut State at Assembly Hall.
Watch and listen to both press conferences in the embedded media player below:
Big Ten Geeks on IU’s 3-point shooting:
The Hoosiers are, predictably, shooting worse than last season, but not by much. Indiana is hitting 40 percent from deep, maintaining the three-point shot as a very valuable weapon. Note that the team average would be 36.5 percent were it not for Remy Abell’s 10 for 12 performance. I thought Matt Roth had graduated, but maybe he’s just...
Early in the second half of Indiana’s 87-51 win over Coppin State, the Hoosiers went to a 1-2-2 trap on defense. But it’s when Tom Crean subbed out Yogi Ferrell — who had been playing the “1″ at the top of the trap — at the 15:58 mark that it started to really pay off. Victor Oladipo shifted into Ferrell’s spot and he was just about everywhere until he was relieved...
Femi Hollinger-Janzen scored midway through the first half and Indiana held off Creighton 1-0 on Friday night to advance to the NCAA soccer final.
The seven-time champion Hoosiers (15-5-3) will play Georgetown in the title game Sunday. The Hoyas beat Maryland 4-3 on penalty kicks following a 4-4 tie.
Hollinger-Janzen gathered a deflected pass on the right wing and booted an 8-yard...
Entering Friday night's NCAA College Cup semi-finals Big Ten fans were hoping to see a current B1G team win and a future B1G team win for an all B1G clash as Indiana took on Creighton in one semi-final and Maryland took on Georgetown for the right to play for the national championship on Sunday.
However that dream matchup wouldn't come to fruition, but don't blame...
If you’re on a sports blog, I have to assume that the answer to the question posed in the title is a resounding YES.
As a fan of both the 49ers and Indiana Hoosiers myself (apparently I really like the Harbaugh-Crean family), each of which appear to have good chances of reaching their respective title games, such a sports dream prize pack is extra appealing to me this year. So...
With a week between games, the Indiana staff has used the off-time to hit the east coast for several recruiting stops.
Here’s a look at where travels have taken the staff on Monday and Tuesday and also a look at where they’re expected to be on Wednesday evening:
