    Indiana turns the tables on Butler at the Crossroads Classic

    INDIANAPOLIS – Situations were made for the team in navy blue to come out with another storybook ending in this venue. It’s happened three other times since the Crossroads Classic began in 2011-though the first two would fall into the category of historic. Andrew Smith’s putback with a second left in regulation helped Butler beat Purdue in the first game in the four-team Hoosier State one-day tournament. It was an overtime layup by Alex Barlow that gave the Bulldogs an […]

    INDIANAPOLIS – Hope for a close and competitive game in the second part of the Crossroads Classic disappeared in a flash on the Bankers Life Fieldhouse court on Saturday. To be more specific, a flurry of dunks. It was a group of the explosive offensive plays that showed the might of one team on that end of the floor and the progress still needed for another. That’s exactly what the team donning the Old Gold jerseys on Saturday was hoping […]

    ARLINGTON, TX – It’s something that happens only about once a decade thanks to the NFL’s scheduling system. Pat McAfee wasn’t going to waste this rare chance. Oh, he’ll be ready for the Colts game on Sunday with the Cowboys in Arlington-the first for the team on the road against that franchise since the 2006 season. In fact the Colts will need his kickoff and punting expertise if they hope to beat the NFC East-leading Cowboys. But McAfee wanted to […]

    Shot of the Game Candidates for December 19th

    INDIANAPOLIS – Twas the Friday before Christmas and before the holiday, high school basketball players were trying to get in their best plays. Like the rhyme? We’ll if you don’t you had to like the plays made during the second-to-last Friday of December and the one before December 25th. But only two of these made the cut for the best shot of that day’s action of basketball. Once again Fox 59 is presenting the Franciscan St. Francis Health Shot of […]

    Beware of ‘Jerry’s World': Colts know the distractions of Cowboys’ home field

    INDIANAPOLIS – When it comes to this venue, Mike Adams doesn’t know where to begin. He’s been to this unusual mecca of the National Football League-one that borders on State of the Art and Circus while a member of the Broncos in 2013. Its’s modern. It’s surreal. It can be a distraction. That’s why the Colts safety offers some advice to those who hit the turf at AT&T Stadium for the first time. “I’ve been there before and I had to […]

    Marian can’t bounce back from bad start in NAIA title game loss

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – Amongst the joy of a second national championship game appearance in three years was the prospect of what was ahead. Especially when Marian University fans looked at the stat lines of their opponent for the NAIA title game.

They put up 45 against top ranked Carroll on the road and then lit up third-ranked St. Xavier for 63 in […]

    INDIANAPOLIS – He is one of the area’s best high school players and he’s only a sophomore. Six-foot-Seven forward Kris Wilkes is another in a long line of standouts at North Central High School who have made contributions very quickly to the program and is on the radar of a number of major college basketball programs.

    The Fast Break Fix: Fishers wins Hamilton County bragging rights

    FISHERS – At the end of a disappointing 2013-2014 season, their rivals drove in the final stake. In their Sectional opener, Fishers was dismantled by a strong Hamilton Southeastern team 62-34 to end their season at 8-13. Though it’s very early in the 2014-2015 season, it appears the Tigers are ready to turn a corner-and what better way to do it than against their county rivals. Fishers took a lead early in the second half and held on for a […]

    Colts and IndyCar drivers play shoppers for kids

    INDIANAPOLIS – In many ways they are doing the same thing that everyone’s doing about this time a year. While pushing a shopping cart around a superstore these adults are checking their list, confirming their budget with a calendar and then choosing the appropriate clothes or toys. That’s how it was for a group at the Meijer on Southport Road in Indianapolis on Wednesday night. With a number of children by their side they weaved in and out of aisles […]

    Are the Colts ready for the playoffs?

    INDIANAPOLIS – The schedule doesn’t tell the whole story — even if the narrative generated from that is good. Since a loss to the Patriots on Sunday night in mid-November, the Colts have won four consecutive games. The last of those gave them a second-consecutive AFC South title and put them in the playoffs for a third straight year. But even Chuck Pagano admits that everything is not as dominant as it may seem for the 10-4 Colts as they […]
