    Adding insult to injury for Kansas State -- strength coach Ben O'Donnell tore his Achilles yesterday and had to have surgery today. The team bus also broke down before the game. Some coaches walked to the arena. Not sure how they're getting to the airport.

    High School Basketball Thread

    There may actually be a high school basketball season in Illinois and then again there may not. Confusion still reigns in the state but at least some schools may be able to play a few games. This is part of today's announcement: The Illinois High School Association announced on Wednesday that basketball season will start immediately and run until March 13. Teams will need seven days of practice before they can play games and the schools must be in COVID-19 regions that have reached Phase 4. Basketball won’t have any postseason. Local school districts still have the authority to cancel this limited season in its entirety if they so desire. There is also a major question mark as to what the Chicago Public School system will do. https://chicago.suntimes.com/high-school-sports/2021/1/27/22252908/high-school-basketball-ihsa-coronavirus

    Some possible changes to the current dead period in recruiting may be forthcoming. The following from Pete Thamel We should see an update soon on the end of the NCAA's recruiting dead period, which is slated through Apr 15. A note sent to administrators obtained by @YahooSports indicates a recommendation for a quiet period -- "depending on medical guidance"-- in all sports Apr. 16-June 30 A "quiet period" means there can be on-campus visits. The DI Council will have an "action item" in March on whether coaches will be able to go out recruiting in July. That's obviously the biggest month annually for basketball recruiting. (They'll discuss this in February). Here's the feel that the NCAA is giving: "A consistent, gradual approach to ending the temporary recruiting dead period would be ideal, and that such an approach will be driven by medical guidance...." The "Quiet Period" depends on that guidance.

    (2022) - SG Chris Livingston

    This kid has totally slipped through the cracks. His thread was started in May and in July, he and his twin brother left Case Western Reserve and transferred back to Buchtel HS in Akron the same school they had transferred from to attend Case Western. A fact my secretary failed to tell me. Since we're not hearing his name mentioned I'm assuming our offer is meaningless; nonetheless, here's an update on the kid. Buchtel went 20-8 in 2018-19 with Chris Livingston playing a key role as a freshman. The team won the Akron City Series title and rolled through the Division II district and regional tournaments before falling to eventual state champion Trotwood-Madison in the semifinals. Chris Livingston was named the City Series and the Northeast Ohio Inland District Division II Player of the Year in 2019 and also received All-Ohio honors. He averaged 24.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game. He played in 25 games as a sophomore at Western Reserve Academy, averaging 32.5 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.9 steals and 1.4 blocks per game. The Pioneers went 13-16 playing a mix of Ohio high school teams as well as traveling prep schools. His best game came in a 76-65 win over Bristolville Bristol as he piled up 50 points, 20 rebounds, eight steals and five blocked shots. That was among six 40-point games. He was selected as a MaxPreps Sophomore All-American first team pick.

    2022 General Recruiting Thread

    Article on Braeden Moore by Alec Lasley most of which is behind the Rivals paywall but these parts aren't. Indiana is a program that has been in contact with Moore previously, but has recently started to become increasingly more involved, as have programs like Baylor and Virginia. The 6-foot-8 forward is averaging 20.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while shooting 39 percent from three to start his junior season.

    IU Mens/Womens Swimming and Diving

    Indiana University redshirt junior diver Andrew Capobianco and freshman diver Anne Fowler were honored as Big Ten Divers of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday afternoon. Andrew Capobianco B1G Men's Diver of the Week The Holly Springs, N.C., native continues to dominate in the early stages of the 2020-21 season, racking up two more victories against No. 17 Ohio State. He compiled season-best performances in both the 1-meter (417.00) and 3-meter (473.55) events against the Buckeyes. Both scores secured NCAA 'A' Standard marks for the reigning NCAA 3-meter champion. Capobianco has been named the Diver of the Week for the fourth time in his illustrious Indiana career after securing the nod last week as well. Anne Fowler B1G Women's Diver of the Week Fowler, the reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Week, upped her standard by winning both the 1-meter (356.10) and the 3-meter (372.75) events against No. 14 Ohio State. Her 1M score broke the program's dual meet record, made her the third-ranked IU performer in the history of the event, and ranks as the fifth-best overall score in Indiana women's diving history. Her 3M score ranks her as the team's fifth-best performer in the event and narrowly missed the dual meet record. Both scores set NCAA 'A' Standard marks. She is the first IU female diver to earn this weekly award from the conference since Jessica Parratto on Jan. 30, 2019. Indiana will be back in the pool on Feb. 6 for a three-team competition featuring host Purdue and Rutgers.
