Indiana forced 28 turnovers which turned into 41 Hoosier points and the home team went on to defeat Franklin, 89-37, in an exhibition Wednesday night at Assembly Hall. Sophomore Christian Watford led the way with 25 points in 24 minutes, making nine of 11 field goal attempts. Sophomore Maurice Creek had 16 points, five rebounds and three steals, and junior Daniel Moore added 12 points and three steals making six of seven shots from the floor.

"First off, we appreciate Franklin," said IU Coach Tom Crean. "I thought they were extremely scrappy like we thought they would. The best thing they do that we saw on film was get to 50-50 balls, make the hustle plays last year. We thought that would be really good for us to have to deal with. Their break was outstanding and they continued to go the entire time. I think that's really, really important because we totally set out to compete for 40 minutes. I'm most excited about that. I don't think we had very many lulls at all. We got momentum back a few times and our guys never stopped competing inside of the game."

The Hoosiers shot 61.3% from the field and outscored the Division III Grizzlies 43-13 in the second half. Indiana had a 54-18 advantage in the paint and a 19-4 lead in second chance points. In addition, Indiana outrebounded Franklin 42-20.

Ten players recorded double digit minutes tonight and scored tonight. Sophomore Derek Elston had nine points and six rebounds and added two blocked shots. Freshman Victor Oladipo also had nine points and two steals and senior Jeremiah Rivers had six points and three rebounds in 13 minutes.

"We had some defensive goals that we wanted to hit," said Crean. "We hit those and that was important to us. We continued to move the basketball in a very good way. That was important to us. A lot of the baskets that we got were in the context of the offense."

The Hoosiers will play their final exhibition game on Monday, November 8 when they host Ferris State at 7 p.m. in Assembly Hall. The season opener is November 12 against Florida Gulf Coast.

New Uniforms

Today, adidas and Indiana University teams unveil the lightest and most technologically advanced college basketball uniforms ever. Designed and developed by adidas, the uniforms are 30 percent lighter and dry twice as fast as previous uniforms to help enhance the Hoosiers' performance by keeping players cooler, drier and more comfortable on the court.

The new Indiana uniforms, made from 60 percent recycled materials, feature adidas' Formotion technology, which reduces seams, decreases friction between the garment and the player's skin and optimizes the player's natural movement through specially constructed material. adidas reduced uniform weight and increased player comfort by switching front and back numbers from heavier, dense materials to a more breathable mesh.

"Our goal at adidas is to help make athletes stronger, lighter and faster, whether you're playing in the Final Four or a pick-up game with your friends," said Travis Blasingame, adidas Basketball Apparel Global Business Unit Director. "As the official outfitter for these collegiate properties, we work closely with the teams and athletic departments to constantly innovate and improve products to help the best basketball players in the country become one step quicker and jump one inch higher."

The new Indiana uniform absorbs moisture in less than three seconds as a result of adidas CLIMACOOL fabrics. The jersey moves heat and sweat away from the body through a combination of moisture management materials, ventilation channels and three dimensional garments, helping the uniform dry twice as quickly.

Along with Indiana, 11 other schools will debut the new uniforms this season, including University of Cincinnati, University of Kansas, University of Louisville, University of Michigan, University of Nebraska, North Carolina State University, University of Notre Dame, University of Tennessee, Texas A&M University, UCLA and University of Wisconsin.

In addition to the NCAA teams wearing the new uniforms, all 30 NBA teams will wear Revolution 30 jerseys this season featuring similar adidas technology.

The new uniforms are part of an integrated and customizable uniform system that includes adidas TECHFIT padded and PowerWeb compression base layers and accessories. This system helps to improve endurance and protect athletes from injury while maintaining flexibility.

The new jerseys will be available in replica versions at campus bookstores and local sporting goods stores in mid-December. The jerseys will retail for MSRP $50-$60 and the shorts will be $45-$55.

Tom Crean on Guy-Marc Michel

"The NCAA is reviewing the status of Guy-Marc Michel.

Prior to attending North Idaho Community College, Guy participated in club basketball in France, where he finished high school and enrolled in some college courses. In three years with the French club, Guy participated as a member of an amateur team. In his third year, he was `called up' for limited participation with a team that included professional players.

Given the experiences of other international student-athletes who have participated in European basketball systems, we anticipated some extended review of Guy's status.

We have great respect for the NCAA's process, particularly because we know they have a practice of reviewing each individual student-athlete's case on its own merit, with a focus on what's best for the student. We also appreciate the NCAA's increased understanding of the circumstances facing international student-athletes, which led to recent rule changes that permit immediate eligibility for entering freshman with the same competitive experiences as Guy.

With these factors in mind, we are hopeful for a positive resolution to Guy's case within the coming weeks. While he is not eligible to compete at this time, he will continue to improve in practice, and he'll continue doing very well in the classroom, until the process is complete. We will have no additional comments until the matter is resolved."

FC edges New Albany by one, again PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 02 November 2010 00:00

For the second time this season, the two Floyd County varsity football teams hooked up in a wild and wacky offensive meeting. And for the second time in as many games, the outcome was the same.
When the two teams met on Oct. xx it took 61 points for the Floyd Central Highlanders to take control of the coveted Anchor trophy. Friday’s game didn’t have the same kind of offensive numbers, but it was close as FC edged New Albany 48-47.
The Highlanders are 9-2 as they prepare for their third consecutive home game in Class 4A sectional xx. FCHS will host Castle Friday. That game is a re-match of last year’s sectional title game that the Highlanders won 42-32.
Castle got to the title game by beating Jennings County 69-27.
FC’s road was far more competitive.
New Albany led for much of the first half as they scored three touchdowns giving them a 19-7 advantage.
The Highlanders only first quarter score came on a seven-yard run by Kyle Bramble. Brock Slavens took the ball on PAT.
FC cut New Albany’s lead to three just before half time when Bramble scored again, this time from three yards out. The PAT again was successful as Garrett Shanks threw a pass to Bramble.
Both teams managed to scored touchdowns and two-point conversions in the third quarter.
Dylan Jenney scored six for the Highlanders and Shanks threw a pass to Jordan Thompson putting them up 24-19.
That advantage was short-lived, however as the Bulldogs scored again.
The back-and-forth continued as FC scored on an 84-yard run by Slavens and again Shanks and Thompson connected on the PAT.
The Highlanders answered every New Albany run with one of their own.
Bramble scored on a 24-yard run and then added the two point conversion himself.
The game-clinching scored from FC came when Forest Ridge picked up a New Albany fumble and returned it for the touchdown.
The two teams combined for more than 800 yards of total offense, 385 of which was gained by the Highlanders.
Bramble led the way with 41 carries for 186 yards and Slavens finished with 125 yards on four carries.
Floyd Central’s Players of the Week were Cody Brewer (offensive line); Joey Quinkert (defensive line); Slavens (offensive and defensive backs) and Austin Wirth (special teams); Brett Zoll had the big hit and Slavens had the big play.
Friday’s meeting between Castle and FCHS will be just the second meeting in the past 15 years. The two teams are 1-1 in those meetings.
The winner of Friday’s game will take on the winner between Whiteland and Bloomington North in Sectional 7.
According to the Indianahighschoolfootball Web site, the game is slated to begin at 7 p.m., but fans planning to attend, should confirm kick-off with the school’s athletic office.
Admission to the game is $6.
