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.
The civic center opened three decades ago around the time the much larger Allstate Arena did in Rosemont, but never packed in the same crowds. Taxpayer subsidies kept the lights on, and the facility broke even last year after expenses were slashed by 30 percent.
CHICAGO | Chairman Tom Ricketts insisted there will be a day when results replace promises and headlines focus on victories for the Cubs.
Valparaiso ended the nonconference portion of the schedule by displaying the same problem that has plagued the men's basketball team all season.
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.
MANCHESTER, ENGLAND | For the third straight year, Chicago will be a crucial part of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's broadcast partnership with Fox.

NORFOLK, Va. | The best phrase Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie to describe doing the unexpected is "the tingle."
WASHINGTON | Yelps of support and echoing applause greeted the voice booming over the loudspeakers Wednesday at the scheduled start of practice for the East Regional's fourth seed: "Coached by Jim Boeheim, please welcome the Syracuse Orange!"
VALPARAISO | The lights were out, doors were locked and all was quiet at the Athletics-Recreation Center on Wednesday afternoon.
MONTREAL | Darren Elkins is close, and he knows it.
It's the time of year when the men are separated from the boys in the NFL.
SOUTH BEND | Brian Kelly steps into his third season at Notre Dame looking for a quarterback who can run his spread offense. Sure sounds familiar.
LAS VEGAS | They lost Dwyane Wade but gained Kevin Durant. Dwight Howard's size has given way to Russell Westbrook's speed.
NEW YORK | The only things standing in the way of a major college football playoff are 12 university presidents.
HOUSTON | Hey, Peyton Manning. If there was ever a doubt about what you mean to Indianapolis, there isn't anymore.
