COLUMBUS, Ohio – The IUPUI basketball team will face a daunting task on Tuesday (Jan. 18) when the Jaguars take on No. 19/18 Ohio State (11-4) inside Value City Arena at 7:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network as Chris Vosters (pxp) and Trent Meacham (analyst) call the action. 

IUPUI (1-14) is coming off a tough road trip through Wisconsin as the Jaguars dropped contests at both Green Bay and Milwaukee last week. On Saturday, Bakari LaStrap and Azariah Seay had nine points apiece as the Jaguars fell at Milwaukee, 89-54. It marked IUPUI’s worst defensive effort of the year as the Panthers posted 89 points and shot 62 percent from the floor against the Jaguars. It marked the first time this year the Jags had allowed a foe to hit better than 50 percent from the floor, coming in the season’s 15th game. 

Junior Mike DePersia came off the IUPUI bench with eight points, four boards and three assists and Jonah Carrasco had seven points, four rebounds and a career-high three steals. DeAndre Gholston led Milwaukee with 21 points, including hitting five treys. 

The Jags enter Tuesday’s gameat 0-17 all-time against ranked opponents and have lost 10 straight to Big Ten foes since defeating Northwestern back in 2002. The Jags are 0-2 against Ohio State, having lost on trips to Columbus in 2001 and 2010. 


Ohio State is ranked No. 19/18 nationally and comes in at 11-4 overall and 8-0 at home this season. The Buckeyes have impressive wins this season, having defeated both Duke and Seton Hall in non-conference play. E.J. Liddell leads OSU in scoring (19.9 ppg), rebounds (7.1 rpg), minutes played (31.0 mpg) and blocked shots (45). Malaki Branham also scores in double-digits at 10.2 points per game while eight different OSU players average better than six points per game. As a team, OSU shoots 48 percent overall and 37 percent from three while holding foes to 41 percent overall and 32 percent from beyond the arc. 


IUPUI is 0-2 all-time against Ohio State, losing in trips to Columbus in 2001 and 2010. 


IUPUI will return home and return to Horizon League play when the Jaguars host Wright State at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday night (Jan. 20) inside Indiana Farmers Coliseum. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+. 

Game Notes (click here for the full PDF packet)


  • IUPUI is 0-17 all-time against ranked opponents in the program’s Division I era (1998-present). The last time IUPUI faced Ohio State on Dec. 9, 2010, the Buckeyes were ranked No. 2 nationally and outlasted the Jaguars, 75-64. 
  • IUPUI hasn’t defeated a Big Ten opponent since Nov. 27, 2002 when the Jaguars won at Northwestern, 56-53. Since then, IUPUI has dropped 10 straight to Big Ten opponents, which includes the 2010 meeting with Ohio State. 
  • IUPUI has made three trips to Ohio State’s Value City Arena in the program’s history – road games against the Buckeyes in 2001 and 2010, both of which ended in defeat. Additionally, IUPUI opened the 2006-07 season by participating in the BCA Classic in Columbus, facing Alabama A&M, Kent State and Loyola Chicago in neutral site games. 
  • With a rash of injuries in December, the IUPUI starting lineup and rotations has become a patchwork chore for first year head coach Matt Crenshaw. Of the 11 players who have seen action this season, 10 have now started at least one game this season. Freshman Boston Stanton III is the lone IUPUI player to have started all 15 games. 
  • Of IUPUI’s 11 active players, 10 have scored in double-figures in at least one game this season with senior Jonah Carrasco adding his name to that list last Monday night (Jan. 10). Carrasco had a perfect shooting night, hitting all four field goals and both of his free throws in tallying a career-high 10 points against UIC. The only player to have not scored in double-digits this season is junior guard Mike DePersia.  
  • Maxwell leads IUPUI in scoring (11.6 ppg), rebounding (4.6 rpg), minutes played (31.5 mpg), free throw percentage (81.4%) and threes made (18). Maxwell has led IUPUI in scoring in nine of his 14 appearances and had a career-high 20 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3’s, 5-5 FT) against Chicago State just before Christmas break. 
  • The IUPUI basketball team had a 3.23 grade point average for the fall with 10 of the 14 team members notching a 3.0 or better. Nathan McClure had a perfect 4.0 in the fall and Stanton had a 3.95 mark. As a team, the Jaguars currently have a cumulative 3.37 team GPA. 

    IUPUI is coming off its worst defensive showing of the year, yielding a season-high 89 points in an 89-54 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday afternoon (Jan. 15)… in addition to the 89 points allowed, IUPUI also allowed a season-high 63.2 percent from the floor, 13 threes, 52.0 percent from three-point range and 19 assists… it marked the first time this season an IUPUI foe shot better than 50 percent from the floor… redshirt junior Nathan McClure, who had attempted just seven free throws all season, hit all six of his tries at Milwaukee… both Mike DePersia and Bakari LaStrap were a perfect 2-of-2 from three-point range in the loss… Azariah Seay had a season-high three assists and Jonah Carrasco had a career-high three steals after collecting just two steals in his first 28 career games… the Milwaukee game marked the second time this year the Jags failed to put a player in double-digits… the Jags matched their season-high with 30 bench points, fueled by nine each from LaStrap and Seay off the bench. 


   IUPUI is 0-2 all-time against Ohio State and 1-4 all-time inside Value City Arena. The Jags lost games to Ohio State in both 2001 and 2010 and went 1-2 in the 2006 BCA Classic at Value City Arena, defeating Alabama A&M in the opener before falling to Kent State and Loyola Chicago the following two days. 

    The takeaway from the 2006 trip was future NBAer George Hill suffered a foot injury in game two to Kent State, ultimately causing him to redshirt the 2006-07 campaign. 


    Head coach Matt Crenshaw was in the IUPUI starting five when the Jaguars visited Ohio State on Dec. 8, 2001, finishing with six points, four boards and two assists while playing a team-high 30 minutes in the 83-70 loss. Antoine Lewis paced the Jaguars with 19 points (9-13 FG) in that contest and Lance Williams added 13 (4-12 FG, 3-5 3’s, 2-2 FT). 


    After scoring just 30 points in the season’s first nine games combined, senior Azariah Seay has been on a scoring binge, averaging 13.2 points per game over the past six games. Seay tallied a career-high 17 on 8-of-12 shooting against Morehead State on Dec. 21. 


    IUPUI has used a trio of bodies in the middle this season in Jonah Carrasco, Chuks Isitua and Dimitar Pandev. Collectively, the group is averaging 10.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocked shots per game while shooting 51 percent (56-of-110) from the field. 


    IUPUI entered the Dec. 21 Morehead State game with nine healthy bodies and finished the night with just seven cleared for takeoff. In addition to Seay’s career-high 17, two others made the most of an extended opportunity as sophomore Bakari LaStrap finished with a career-high 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-1 FT) in 35 minutes off the bench and senior Dimitar Pandev also had a career-high 11 (3-3 FG, 2-2 3’s, 3-6 FT) in just 18 minutes. 

    IUPUI’s top scorer, B.J. Maxwell, was limited to just three points on 1-of-7 shooting. 


    With IUPUI’s scoring coming via committee, IUPUI is averaging 19.7 points per game off the bench this season. IUPUI has received 10-or-more points from its bench in every game this season and has had a season-high 30 points twice, including at Milwaukee on Saturday (Jan. 15). 


    Maxwell is an interesting case study in today’s new world of college basketball as he’s entering his seventh year of college this season. After redshirting his opening season (2015-16) at Abilene Christian, he played three full seasons at ACU before transferring out for a fifth season. He played just two games at Detroit Mercy in 2019-20 before suffering a season ending injury and receiving another season of eligibility. He spent all of last season at Saint Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, where he averaged 18.6 points and 5.3 boards per game while earning NABC Second Team All-District honors.

    After all NCAA student-athletes were granted an additional year of eligibility due to COVID-19 issues, Maxwell opted to join the IUPUI program for a seventh season of schooling. He enters this season having played 94 collegiate basketball games and having scored 758 points across both NCAA Division I and II levels.     

    CHASING 1,000

    Maxwell’s journey has spanned four schools in three different states at both the Division I and Division II levels, but through it all, he’s closing in on 1,000 collegiate points. Maxwell has 921 collegiate points entering play – 385 at Abilene Christian, 2 at Detroit Mercy, 371 at St. Edward’s University and 163 this season at IUPUI.

Winter alerts in effect; Snow to cause travel impacts starting Sunday night into Monday

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Hard to believe a winter storm system is on its way to Northeast Ohio with the clear skies we saw on Saturday and will see through the day on Sunday.

Here is the timeline through the rest of the weekend:

Sunday starts off and stays dry.

Wake up temperatures will sink into the single digits for many early Sunday morning.

The system snow arrives late Sunday night from the south, mainly after 8 PM.

Areas south of Cleveland will see the biggest impacts overnight into early Monday morning.

The higher snow totals will be east and along the I-71 corridor, with the heaviest snow expected east of the I-77 corridor.

Regardless, snow will still be falling in these areas come Monday morning, so expect snow-covered roads and slick travel during the Monday morning commute.

The second part of the ALERT will be lake effect snow picking up and continuing through the afternoon Monday.

This is where we could pick up and additional 4-8″ in the snowbelt where snow squalls persist.

This could lead to travel impacts during the evening commute as well.

A few lake effect snow bands will linger through the first half of the day Tuesday.

This is a complicated and evolving system. Stay with the 19 First Alert Team for the latest updates.

🏀 Jayhawks Continue Road Trip Wednesday Night at No. 13/12 Texas – Kansas Jayhawks

AUSTIN, Texas – For the third time in five days, the Kansas Women’s Basketball team will be in action as the Jayhawks travel to Austin, Texas, to face No. 13/12 Texas on Wednesday, Jan. 12.

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. CT at the Frank Erwin Center and the game will be televised on Longhorn Network.

This will be the second straight Big 12 Conference road game for the Jayhawks, who defeated TCU 78-72 on Monday, Jan. 10, in Fort Worth, Texas, to improve to 10-2 on the year and 1-1 in league play. The Jayhawks opened Big 12 play on Saturday, Jan. 8, by dropping an 82-68 decision to No. 23/25 Oklahoma, which makes KU 9-2 on the year and 0-1 in the Big 12. Texas will be the third nationally-ranked opponent that KU has faced and the second in the past three games. Both of the Jayhawks defeats this season have come against teams ranked in the Top 25.

Junior guard Holly Kersgieter led the Jayhawks in scoring for the third straight games as she totaled 15 points at TCU on Monday night. Kersgieter hit three three-pointers in the contest, giving her 111 for her career, which is one away from tying Monica Engelman (2010-13) for 10th place on the program’s all-time list. Zakiyah Franklin and Chandler Prater added 13 points apiece in the win at TCU. Franklin has scored 10 or more points eight times and she’s third on the team with 10.4 ppg for the year. Prater scored seven straight points during the third quarter and finished one point shy of her career high.

Texas is 11-2 on the year and 1-1 in Big 12 play following a 74-61 defeat against Texas Tech on Jan. 5 in Austin. The Longhorns are ranked No. 13 by the AP and No. 12 in the Coaches Poll this week.  UT is ranked third in the Big 12 in both scoring offense (79.2 ppg) and scoring defense (55.1 ppg) this season. Two-Time National Coach of the Year Vic Schaefer is in his second season as the head coach of Texas Women’s Basketball after previously coaching at Mississippi State.

Kansas and Texas have met 42 times in a series that dates back to the 1981-82 season, with the two teams playing as members of the Big 12 Conference since its formation for the 1996-97 season. Texas leads the all-time series 31-11, which includes a 15-4 mark in Austin. KU last won at the Frank Erwin Center on Jan. 4, 2012.

Up Next

Kansas returns home on Sunday, Jan. 19, for its second straight matchup against a ranked opponent. The Jayhawks will host No. 14/13 Baylor at 2 p.m. CT from Allen Fieldhouse.

Accumulating Snow Could Cause Travel Issues Sunday Night and Monday

After a round of severe weather Saturday, a winter storm is taking shape across the Tennessee Valley Sunday night into Monday. A cold rain will begin Sunday afternoon and evening, transitioning to a heavy, wet snow Sunday evening and overnight.

The snow will be heavy enough that most of us will see some accumulations. The most likely area to see snow accumulations will be on rooftops, cars, patios, grass, and bridges and overpasses. In parts of Limestone, Lawrence, Madison, Morgan, Jackson, Lincoln, Moore, and Franklin (TN) counties, snow may be heavy enough to accumulate on roads, leading to travel issues. Where snow does accumulate, it will flash freeze overnight, leading to icy spots Monday morning. Plan for a difficult commute tomorrow, and be prepared to take different routes and move slowly.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Limestone, Lawrence, Madison, Morgan, Jackson, Lincoln, Moore, and Franklin(TN) counties until 3 a.m. This is where the biggest travel impacts are likely Sunday night and Monday morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 3 a.m. for Lauderdale, Colbert, Franklin, Marshall. DeKalb, Cullman, Wayne, Lawrence(TN), and Giles counties. Travel impacts are possible in these counties, particularly on bridges and overpasses.

Travel news: The latest lounges at Pearson, Europe’s night trains, and an ancient trail set to re-open

Rest and refresh

Plaza Premium Lounge, which operates independent lounges in more than 70 major airports worldwide, has added two more spaces at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The Concept Lounge, new to Terminal 1 (pre-security, domestic departures), offers refreshments, as well as a “Fast Track pass” to get through security. The flagship Landmark Lounge joins Terminal 3 (international departures), where you can book in for a wide array of food and drinks, shower room access, a nursery room, a kids’ play area and other amenities. Stays in either lounge can be reserved ahead at plazapremiumlounge.com.

Sleeper hits

In Europe, night trains are having a moment again, especially as long-distance rail is considered a crucial way for the E.U. to cut flying-related carbon emissions and hit climate targets. Expanding now is Nightjet, operated by ÖBB (Austrian Railways), which added new routes in December: connecting Vienna to Paris, and Amsterdam to Zurich. Tickets range from budget-conscious single seats to private compartments in your own sleeper car or couchette carriage. Still in the works is Midnight Trains, a Paris-based startup that aims to offer a retro-glam “hotel on rails” experience when it launches in 2024.

Ancient route restored

The historic Trans Bhutan Trail is slated to reopen this year, for the first time in six decades. Once the sole way to get across the landlocked mountain kingdom, the newly restored, approximately 400-kilometre route is expected to welcome tourists as of April 2022, a move intended to help boost the economies of adjacent rural communities. Tour operator G Adventures will offer two new trail-related treks, including an 11-day tour with camping, hikes on select stretches and, of course, views of Paro Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest), the country’s famous cliff-clinging monastery.

Screen before you spa

Taking a COVID test has become a new normal for flying. Whether such screening will roll out more widely to other travel settings remains to be seen, but at least one spa has added the step: Upon arrival at Ste. Anne’s Spa, the destination retreat in Grafton, Ont., guests are asked to take a (complimentary) rapid antigen test, and also pass the new Predictmedix station, an AI-powered archway designed to detect symptoms (such as a fever). The measures are geared toward offering what we head to the spa to find: a little extra peace of mind.

Dragons Face Coppin State on Tuesday Night at the DAC

Game Info: Tuesday, December 14, 2021 – 8:00 p.m.
Location: Daskalakis Athletic Center – Philadelphia, Pa.

PHILADELPHIA – The Drexel men’s basketball team is back in action at the Daskalakis Athletic Center on Tuesday for the final time before winter break. The Dragons will host Coppin State in their final non-conference home game of the season. The game will tip-off at 8 p.m. and is part of a doubleheader with the women’s team. The Drexel women play Yale at 5 p.m.. The 2021-22 Drexel men’s basketball season is presented by IBEW 98. 


Drexel leads the all-time series with the Eagles, 2-0. The two teams met at the Daskalakis Athletic Center last season, where the Dragons came away with a 69-54 win. All five Drexel starters scored at least 10 points. Cam Wynter led the way with 15 points. Koby Thomas scored 15 for the Eagles. The previous meeting came way back in 1985, when Drexel defeated Coppin State, 88-66, at the Marist Pepsi Classic in December of 1985.


The Dragons are now 4-5 after suffering a 73-56 loss at Abilene Christian on Saturday. Drexel had their looks in the first half but couldn’t get many 3-pointers to fall. DU was just 2-for-16 from deep in the half as the Wildcats won for the 18th straight time on their home court. Lamar Oden, Jr., tied a career-high with 12 points and made two 3-pointers. Tre Brown added a season-high 11 points. James Butler snared 13 rebounds.

Through nine games, James Butler leads the team with 14.9 points. He is also the leading rebounder in the CAA with 10.2 per game. Camren Wynter chips in with 14.2 points and a team-high 3.9 assists. Graduate student Melik Martin (10.3) and sophomore Xavier Bell (10.1) each average in double figures. The Dragons are shooting the ball well from the floor this season, making almost 47 percent of their shots. However, they haven’t been as effective from deep as of late. Drexel is shooting just .325 from long range.


The Eagles are off to a tough start and sit at 1-13 coming in. They have had a brutal schedule with 12 of their first 14 games on the road. Included in that are road games at Virginia, Loyola of Chicago, De Paul, UConn and St. Bonaventure. Coppin State’s win came against Loyola of Maryland. Jesse Zarzuela is one of three Eagles in double figures scoring with 15.7 points per game. Tyree Corbett scores 13.2 per contest, while Nendah Tarke averages 11.6. The Eagles like to shoot 3-pointers and almost half of their shots this season come from behind the arc.


Drexel will play its final two games before winter break on the road in Philadelphia. The Dragons face Temple on Saturday and travel to La Salle next Tuesday.


Our neighbors from the 19104 zip code can receive a discounted $5 ticket to all Drexel Basketball home games in December! Show your license or state ID with the 19104 zip code at the Ticket Office to redeem your $5 ticket!

In addition, all fans will receive one free schedule magnet upon entry to the DAC while supplies last. Show up early to get your magnet and support your Dragons.

Prep roundup: Grand night for TC Christian’s Broderick; Glen Lake tops Elk Rapids 50-46 | Sports

TRAVERSE CITY — Brock Broderick needed 27 points to reach 1,000 for his career.

By the end of the first quarter Tuesday, the senior varsity boys basketball star for Traverse City Christian needed just seven after dropping 20 points in the first eight minutes.

“It didn’t take much from there,” TC Christian head coach Rene LaFreniere said. “He was on a mission.”

Broderick completed the mission and finished the contest with a game-high 40 points as the Sabers went on to beat Leland 74-38.

“It just feels good to surpass it so I don’t have to worry about that,” Broderick said. “We can just keep going, now.”

Tuesday was the first time LaFreniere coached Broderick in live-game action. The senior certainly impressed his coach.

“That’s a heckuva way to start off,” LaFreniere said. “It wasn’t just offensively. He was hustling all over the floor on defense, he was talking, getting rebounds. He set the pace for the game, and the rest of the guys followed suit.”

Broderick said he is feeling good about his squad’s potential this year, bringing in a senior-laden group that has been playing together for a while.

“We’ve got a kind of a soccer squad,” Broderick said. “We’re scrappy. We’re fast. We’ve got a few big guys. If we keep going with that chemistry, we could be really good.”

No. 18/19 Tigers Enter December Wednesday Night at Georgia

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Memphis Tigers begin a stretch of four games against Southeastern Conference foes in their next five contests Wednesday night at Georgia. Tip-off in Athens is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. CT on SEC Network.
Memphis is ranked No. 18 in this week’s Associated Press poll and 19th in the coaches poll after falling from No. 9 and No. 10, respectively. Georgia enters the contest with a 2-5 mark, and the game against Memphis is its second on an eight-game, 37-day homestand.
The Tigers’ 18-day stretch of games against Georgia, Ole Miss, Alabama and Tennessee marks the most games against SEC opponents the program has played in a season since 2001-02. That year, the Tigers defeated Tennessee and lost to Alabama, Ole Miss and Arkansas in the regular season, before also beating South Carolina in the NIT Championship game.
The night before the Georgia game, Tiger redshirt-junior Landers Nolley II will travel to nearby Fairburn, Ga., to have his jersey retired at Langston Hughes HS. He is the first player in Langston Hughes’ 12-year history to earn this honor. Nolley II won two state championships while at Langston Hughes and still holds the school record for career points in only two seasons of play.
After Wednesday’s game, the Tigers remain on the road and head to Ole Miss Saturday at 11 a.m. on ESPN2. The Tigers then return to FedExForum to host Murray State on Dec. 10 and nationally-ranked Alabama on Dec. 14.

Santa Clara Shoe Store Ransacked in Late Night Smash-and-Grab Robbery – CBS San Francisco

SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — Dozens of burglars smashed into the doors of a shoe store Sunday night and stole thousands of dollars worth of shoes in the latest smash-and-grab robbery in the Bay Area.

After retailers in San Francisco, Walnut Creek and the South Bay were overwhelmed by thieves on a tear earlier this month, the shoe store Fix Kicks was overtaken by 25-35 burglars Sunday night, according to reports.

At some time late Sunday, dozens of burglars bore down on the shoe store, breaking the glass on the front windows and doors. It’s unclear how much merchandise was taken, but pairs of Air Jordans worth over $1,000 were reportedly among the items stolen.

Santa Clara police later confirmed that they received 9-1-1 calls just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday night regarding a large group of suspects burglarizing the store on the 2000 block of El Camino Real. Arriving Santa Clara police saw numerous vehicles fleeing in different directions as they arrived on scene.

Police also noted that five days earlier — on Nov. 23 at about 1:15 a.m. — the same business had been burglarized. During both burglaries, the suspects forced entry into the store. During the Nov. 23 incident, a group of about 15–30 suspects stole footwear and apparel. In that incident, the suspects also fled from the scene in multiple vehicles.

No injuries were reported in connection with the two burglaries. As of Monday afternoon, police said no suspects have been arrested.

“As in all crimes, the Santa Clara Police Department takes these incidents very seriously. We have several potential promising leads from the initial burglary and are actively investigating all leads,” Police Chief Pat Nikolai in a press release.

The two burglaries are currently under active investigation, so police said they were unable to comment further at this time.

Anthony Becker, a member of the Santa Clara City Council, released a statement decrying the burglary and demanded that something be done about “organized crime.”

“As a leader of this city, I’m gonna do everything in my power to work with the police department, my staff as well as other cities too because we’re all in this together, we’re all combating the same crime,” Becker told KPIX.
