  1. Match televised on the basic BTN network. Live Stats The No. 11-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (3-2-1) will hit the road for a Big Ten Conference match-up against the Northwestern Wildcats (2-3-2). The match is slated for an 8 p.m. ET first kick on Sept. 21 at Martin Stadium. The match will air live on B1G Network for the first time during the 2021 slate. Dean Linke (PxP) and former Indiana Hoosier Patrick Doody (Analyst) will be on the call. Live stats will be available at IUHoosiers.com. SETTING THE SCENE • The two sides met three times during the abbreviated 2020-21 season with the Hoosiers winning twice. NU took the first matchup, Indiana's lone B1G loss a season ago, in Evanston. The Hoosiers took care of business in the last two games of the series, both in Bloomington, including a 3-0 decision in the opening round of the Big Ten Conference Tournament. • Over the last six seasons, Indiana holds a record of 30-3-8 against Big Ten opponents in the regular season and have outscored the conference foes 74-21 during that stretch. ABOUT THE WILDCATS • Northwestern welcomes Indiana with a record of 2-3-2 under first-year head coach Russell Payne. He took over the reins for legendary Wildcats head coach Tim Lenahan after a successful 11-year tenure at Army West Point. • Freshman midfielder Paul Son and sophomore forward Justin Weiss co-lead the 'Cats in both goals (2) and total points (5). Weiss has attempted a team-high 18 shots for the season. • Northwestern has used two keepers throughout the first seven matches of the season. Fifth-year senior Miha Miskovic leads the duo in starts (5), minutes played (470), saves (19), and shots faced (81). He has also manned the net in each of the two Wildcat victories this season. • Graduate transfer Ethan Bandre (Pacific) has seen two starts in goal and played 155 minutes. He has allowed just one goal (0.58 goals against average) and made five saves.

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    Background on Logan Imes. Interesting comment from Mark Adams his Indiana Elite (Adidas) AAU coach who started him out on the 16U squad and then moved him up to the 17U team. “I don’t play guys up very often,” Adams said. “The only two guys I’ve played up from 16u to 17u in 30 years are Yogi Ferrell and Kyle Guy, and Logan Imes now. … It takes a little toughness to play up an age group where you don’t get bullied, and he’s a tough kid.” https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-class-of-2023-names-to-know-in-state-guard-logan-imes/?fbclid=IwAR2TJpgya8-En54evhuAjj8I2_ZCAG4_ur6CF42F8B3o13u0cQObntJj7Bw

    If (and that's a huge if) he ever lands an IU offer, he's welcome to his own thread but this is an Indiana University forum and he doesn't warrant his own thread.
