Ball State uses momentum swings to down Louisville 4-3

Ball State (2-1) was ready to go from the first serve in its victory over Louisville Jan. 28. Ball State dominated the doubles matches. Third-year Masha Polishchuk and fourth-year Jessica Braun got singles action started, winning each of their singles matches 6-3, 6-1. They jumped out to a 3-0 lead. But if they wanted to win, they were going to have to earn it.

With 52 percent of Americans’ New Year’s resolutions being to exercise more, according to Statistica, and 12 percent of new gym members starting in January, according to RunRepeat, gyms have been filling up. This means new people to fitness centers, some who don’t know the “unwritten rules” of the gym. Here are five rules of gym etiquette for all those visiting the gym.

Burris Swoops Pass Seton Catholic 48-32

The Burris Owls have now won their last four games. Their latest victory was this Friday night’s matchup against the Seton Catholic Cardinals. The red-hot Owls defended Ball Gymnasium as they soared past the visitors 48-32. But this win was special for the home team for a few reasons. First, it was homecoming week. Second, this is the same Owls team that started the season 0-8.

Delta's Caleb Elliott a finalist for Colts' High School Man of the Year

Who is Caleb Elliott? Most high schoolers might be asleep at 9 a.m. on a winter Saturday morning. But not Elliott. The senior hops out of bed and gets dressed. He heads to the school he’s been to all week. Elliott, a wide receiver and point guard for the Eagles football and basketball teams, is not going for a practice. Delta runs a program called “The Future Eagles.” It allows elementary kids to play team basketball inside the school’s gym.

Ball State zips past Akron at home

“I think we were that good,” head coach Brady Sallee said. “I don't think Akron was necessarily bad. I just think we were that good.” For Wednesday night's midweek Mid-American Conference (MAC) play it was the second-seed Ball State Cardinals and the third-seed Akron Zips. On paper, this game should be close, but it was anything but.

Ball State suffers first home loss of the season

Ball State turnover. Buffalo layup. Ball State turnover. Buffalo miss, but then another Ball State turnover. Buffalo 3-pointer, Ball State answers. Then back-to-back turnovers lead to back-to-back 3-pointers. Coach Lewis calls a timeout. The score is 12 - 3. Ball State (13-7, 4-3 MAC) could never recover from this sloppy start in its 26-point loss at the hands of Buffalo (10-10, 4-3 MAC), who never seemed to cool down, shooting 59.7 percent (37-of-62) from the field and 50 percent (11-of-22) from the perimeter.
