Indiana, Illinois schools shut out of NCAA tournament while local players thrive at out-of-state programs
VALPARAISO | Long after the nets are cut down this evening at AT&T Stadium, Indiana and Illinois residents alike will continue to look back on the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament with great disdain.
CHICAGO | In Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville’s system, youth is served when productive.
VALPARAISO | It would’ve been easy for Jessica Carr to just shut everything down and take a year away from basketball. The love the Valparaiso junior has for her teammates made that impossible.
PORTAGE | After 30 years of teaching and coaching and leading, Caren Swickard is retiring.
SOCHI, Russia | A master showman and four-time Olympic medalist, Evgeni Plushenko knows brilliance on the ice.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. | Broncos third-year tight end Julius Thomas began the season with more NCAA tournament trips (two) on his resume than catches in the NFL (one).
JERSEY CITY, N.J. | The names are hardly as familiar as Peyton Manning and Richard Sherman. Yet, for all the megastars and All-Pros in this Super Bowl, there are guys like Jermaine Kearse and Paris Lenon.
VALPARAISO | Considering the recent success the Valparaiso gymnastics team has had at the state level, back-to-back second place finishes could almost be considered a slump.
For all the ongoing angst involving concussion, the injury is almost always far less debilitating than a torn ACL in the knee.
MOBILE, Ala. | Arkansas State was down to an interim coach, a backup quarterback and less than a minute remaining in the game.
CHICAGO | Mike Dunleavy scored 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to help the Chicago Bulls beat the Atlanta Hawks 91-84 Saturday night.
INDIANAPOLIS | Robert Mathis insists momentum matters.
CHICAGO | Rayvonte Rice put on quite the show in his final tune-up before Big Ten play begins.
NEW YORK | This nicely sums up Tommy Rees' Notre Dame career.
SAN DIEGO | Jordan Lynch will make a run at history Thursday night when he suits up for the final time for No. 24 Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State.
NEW YORK | Taj Gibson enjoyed coming home for the holidays.
The meeting was brief. A few minutes tops.
BLOOMINGTON | Indiana coach Tom Crean got an idea of where his team stands entering Big Ten play, both good and bad.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. | His coach had called this an impactful game and Purdue's Terone Johnson helped get it for him.
SOUTH BEND | Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says quarterback Everett Golson will return to school after serving a semester-long suspension for academic impropriety.
