The Greyhound bench came out strong for the Hounds on Thursday evening as out of the 100 total points scored for the hounds, 75 of those where at the works of the bench for UIndy as they cruised to their easy 100-66 win over the McKendree Bearcats.
The Hounds have been nursing numerous injuries that were acquired on the three game road trip that the Hounds just got concluded and Coach Stan Gouard used tonight’s game as a chance to rest the players that normally get the minutes in the ball games and give a chance for other players to show their talents on the hardwood. One of those subs being a freshmen guard with the name of Quinten Hunter who scored a staggering 22 points for the Hounds, one point away from his career high of 23 points that he set early in November.
Coach Gouard has nothing but good things to say when he talks about his young guard, “he just works hard on every play” Stan said, “He’s a real difference maker.” Hunter who is out of Richmond High School said he had no idea about how physical division II basketball was and in that fact how physical the GLVC was. When Hunter was asked about how you prepare for a game like the one approaching on Saturday night when Bellermine comes to town he said “just think about it” and the coaching staff of UIndy will have to do a lot of thinking as too how to contain the high powered Bellermine offense.
The scoring aspect for the Hounds was something that has been in their favor all year as all but one player did not score and every single person produced in their own way. If it was Joe Daniels playing as the post player he can be or the freshmen forward Chris Connell gobbling up all the rebounds he could (7rebs). This team barely had anything to complain about in this game against a struggling Bearcats team.
The Greyhounds did a great job defending the Bearcats as only five players scored out of the eight that played; something that they hope will carry over into Saturday’s matchup. Saturday will mark the 86th match-up between these foes. That game will tip-off at 7:45est.
Beyonce Bounces Back for the Super Bowl
As LL Cool J puts it, “Don’t call it a comeback.” After receiving criticism for lip-synching the “Star Spangled Banner” during President Obama’s Inauguration, Beyonce came back to prove her nay-sayers that she will wow the nation with her Super Bowl performance.
In a press conference Thursday in New Orleans, Beyonce asked the press to stand. She then sang the “Star Spangled Banner” acapella to prove that she is still one of the best singers of our time. After she hit each note perfectly, Beyonce gave the press a stunning smile and asked if anyone had any questions.
Yes, Beyonce did lip-synch her performance during the Inauguration. However, she says she wasn’t comfortable singing live because of the weather, not enough time to practice with the orchestra, and no sound check. And she promised the press that her performance on Sunday will be live. She said she “was born to do this” so we should expect quite a show from Miss Knowles during halftime.
Personally, I believe Beyonce’s performance is going to surpass the show put on by Madonna last year in Indianapolis, which happened to be the most watched Super Bowl Halftime show in history. On her website, Beyonce has been posting videos of her practices for the big day. The 49ers and the Ravens both have something to prove, but so does this singer. I really don’t care who’s going to win the Super Bowl, but I do know I’ll be rooting for Beyonce to tear up the stage so her critics can be silenced.
Growing up, my Dad and I always bonded over three things: movies, giant screens, and history. That’s why I’m excited to learn that the Indiana State Museum’s IMAX theater is presenting both classic and historically based movies.
East of Eden starring Hoosier James Dean will open on February 21. Based on the Steinbeck tale of familial drama and passion, the movie tells the story of the journey of Cal who sets out to win back his father’s love.
On the 22nd, Dean will return in the film that many know him best for: Rebel Without A Cause. Dean plays Jim Stark, a troublemaker who’s new to town. His angry charisma attracts troubled Plato to his side, as well as Judy. The only problem is Judy is with Buzz, the neighborhood punk. The score will be settled by a drag race to determine once and for all who wins Judy’s heart.
If you can’t wait just a few more days, Lincoln, Argo, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey are already playing.
Although ticket prices vary, Lincoln and Argo admissions just a little more than a ticket to a showing at a non-IMAX theater.
Do Critics need to be Musicians Themselves?
As a musician myself, I feel it is necessary for all critics to know what they are critiquing about in and out. If a critic is going on and on about an artist’s technical skills during the performance, they need to know what it’s like to pick up that instrument and belt those notes out like the person playing can. Until that is done, I personally don’t feel there is a valid way to say what is good or what is bad. Yes, there are certainly times when one can tell if something does not sound pleasing, but sometimes that is intentional. Minor chords are rarely pleasing to the ear! I feel it is vital for any critic have a small musical back round before they go into the field.
Am I the only one that is confused about the hype of Harlem Shake dance? When I first heard of this I immediately thought it was a version of the hip-hop dance that was popular back in the early 2000s. But when I saw the videos, I quickly learned it wasn’t that at all. I had to look up the background to help me understand it better. Apparently, a producer named Baauer, released a song called “Harlem Shake” in 2012. A video blogger uploaded a video to YouTube with four men dressed in latex suits dancing to this song. This video went viral and people started to create their own versions of the dance. As of February 15 over 40,000 videos have been uploaded to YouTube, totaling over 175 million views. I have watched several Harlem Shake videos including the one the students here at U of I put together in Schwitzer Student Center, and I thought it was hilarious, but I’m still missing the point. It looks like people from all over are having fun with these videos and are really using their creativity, I guess that’s all that matters.

The Indiana Pacers coming into the year were expected to contend and compete against the Miami Heat. Earlier in the year the Pacers underachieved, starting off the year slowly. Since then the Pacers have been hot of late, as they have a 4 game lead over over their central division rival the Chicago Bulls.
The success could be put on the shoulders of David West and Paul George. These two pacers have given the Pacers a lot of publicity and are now a real threat to defeat the defending champs the Miami Heat. If the pacers want to make any noise in the playoffs, they are going to have to continue to win and beat the best teams in the league.
In the 2012-2013 season, there could be a case made that the Big Ten was the worst conference for football. But in basketball, there could be a case made that the Big Ten was the best conference in overall competition. Indiana University was ranked #1 to begin the season, and Michigan earned a higher ranking as time went on as well. As the college basketball season ends, and tournaments begin, there are 5 Big Ten teams ranked in the top 25. Those teams are Indiana, (3) Michigan, (6) Michigan State, (8) Ohio State, (10) and Wisconsin, (22).
Lets expand a little bit away from the big ten. While Indiana represents the big ten with a 26-5 record, the best record in all of NCAA division I basketball this year happens to belong to Gonzaga with a 30-2 record, in which Gonzaga went under the radar for much of the basketball season. We’ve seen top teams left and right fall to unranked opponents throughout the season, including Indiana, Michigan, Louisville, Duke, Florida, Miami, Kansas, and the list goes on and on.
As more than usual upsets have occurred throughout the regular NCAA division I basketball season, don’t be surprised if you see that trend to continue into the March Madness tournament. This year might have the toughest bracket to fill out because of that trend, as we’ve seen our top teams this year play inconsistently. The only Big Ten teams I can see having a legit chance at making the final four, (if they play consistently), would be Indiana and Michigan. Happy March Madness!
My team is my family
On March 31st at Lucas Oil Stadium, Louisville and Duke were playing for the opportunity to go on to Atlanta and play for the final four. With about 3 minutes left to go in the first half, Kevin Ware a player for the Louisville Cardinals jumped in the air to try and block a shot and on his way down, he landed on his leg wrong and his shin bone snapped. It was a horrific scene where his foot was just hanging from his leg. I saw it happen live on television but wasn’t really aware of what had happened. The camera was showing some of the Louisville players on the floor. I had no idea why they were so I went back and watched it again and saw Ware’s leg. It was not a pretty sight at all. The thing that really hit me hard though was all of the Louisville players and Coach Rick Pitino crying. They were thinking the exact thing I was thinking. This could be the end of this kid’s basketball career. I almost shed a tear myself. Just seeing the reaction of the players and coaches like Russ Smith and Pitino just showed me one important thing; this team is like a family. You hear this a lot in sports that the team is like a family but you really don’t see it that often. In this case though it was very adamant. This showed how much each one of these teammates and coaches cared about this one particular player who wasn’t a star on the team. Kevin Ware is only a Sophomore and was just earning his minutes on this team. Another one of the biggest things that touched me as well was what Kevin Ware kept telling his teammates while he was laying on the floor in pain. He said “Don’t worry about me guys, just go out and win the game, I’ll be fine.” This shows how much he cares about his team. He wasn’t even concerned with the potential career ending injury he just suffered, he was more concerned with his teammates going out and getting the win. Coach Rick Pitino told his team at halftime to bring this one home for their teammate Ware. Home for Kevin Ware is ironically Atlanta, Georgia where the Final Four is being held. In the second half, Louisville came out with all of the intensity and pulled away with the Duke Blue Devils and won the game 83-65. Even though their brother had just suffered a horrific injury right in front of their eyes, they went out and won the game for Ware. After the game, the team went straight to the hospital and saw their teammate and gave him the regional trophy. It was a wonderful thing for the team and Ware himself. This story is so painful but yet so touching. It shows that a family can be a sports team. This Louisville Cardinals team is a fantastic example of a team being a family.
