IUPUI Women’s Basketball will be looking much different in the 2022-2023 season.
Austin Parkinson is stepping down after 12 seasons as the IUPUI head coach of the women’s basketball program.
IUPUI Women’s Basketball is the 2021-2022 Horizon League Champion and is headed to March Madness.The Jaguars defeated No.4 Cleveland State Vikings, 61-54. “This is very big for our program,” Parkinson said. “After 2020 we knew we would be back here at some point and today we were able to get over the hump. I am super proud of the ladies and we get to see who we play on Sunday.” During the first half, IUPUI led 30-19. Macee Williams had 15 points and led the attack for IUPUI. In the third quarter, the Vikings were 3-4 from the three-point line. They were 8-13 from the field. IUPUI was 1-3 from three and five players were minus five during the quarter. In the fourth quarter, the lead was cut down by Cleveland State by hitting threes and IUPUI missing many open threes and easy shots in the post. The closest score was 53-51, then Destiny Perkins then made a three and got fouled. With that, it became 57-51 and IUPUI never looked back and won 61-54. Macee Williams was given the Horizon League tournament MVP and finished with a double-double. “Destiny was the reason we were able to get the win today, we deserve the MVP trophy with that three-point play,” Williams said.“I also give Cleveland State credit for getting back into the game. The team made me look good.” This is the second time the Jaguars will be going to the March Madness tournament. The first time was during the 2019-2020 season and they were not able to play in the tournament due to COVID-19. “ This is the moment I’ve been waiting for since 2020,” Williams said.“We didn’t get to play then but we are able to play now.” Williams said. The Jaguars will find out who they play first in the tournament on Sunday, March 13 during selection Sunday.
With the final two home games left, IUPUI’s Men’s basketball team is looking for some positive wins going into the Horizon League tournament. The season has not been the best for the team. They are last in the Horizon League standings and are placed No.358 in the College Basketball rankings, labeling IUPUI as the worst Division one team in the NCAA. Sophomore Bakari LaStrap is averaging 8.5 points a game. He had 10 points in the loss against Youngstown State. The season has been filled with losses and not enough wins. “It’s been a tough season and I have just tried to stay positive,” LaStrap said. “I am a positive guy and I try to stay positive. It’s tough to be on social media due to the criticism, so I use the internet to fuel my game.” Senior Jonah Carrasco is averaging four points a game. He has not played due to a foot injury. “For these past few weeks, the team is taking practice pretty lightly,” Carrasco said. “What that means is we are trying to avoid contact as much as possible because of the injury since we are short of the usual numbers.” On February 6th, the IUPUI Men’s Basketball was sent out stating that the team was looking for IUPUI students who were interested in joining the team for the remaining part of the season. The tweet was later taken down. Both Carrasco and LaStrap were shocked by the tweet. “I think the media took this out of context,” Carrasco said.“It also really got out of hand. This tweet was intended to find practice players and we knew we needed practice players.” LasStrap added, “ I was frustrated and blindsided and we just needed to bring on practice players, not any new players,” he said. The team still has not found any practice players. “We just want to compete, we have the heart and soul, and we are taking it one team at a time. We want to play together to win these final two games,” Cuarssco said.
On February 1, 2022, Tom Brady, quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided to retire and step away from football. On Instagram, he wrote, “ This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.” It was reported that many of Brady’s former teammates said he would retire after the season. Brady played his last game in the NFL in the Divisional Round against the Los Angeles Rams. The two teams met in Week 3 where the Rams beat the Buccaneers 34-24. The Buccaneers were down 27-3 in the third quarter. Brady was able to lead his team down 24 points. The game was all tied up 27-27. However, Cooper Kupp was one-on-one against Buccaneers safety Antoine Winfield Jr. and caught a deep pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford. Kupp caught the 44-yard pass to help kicker Matt Gay end the game on a walk-off 30-yard field goal. This was the last time the NFL saw Tom Brady. Before coming to the Buccaneers, Brady played with the New England Patriots for 20 years. He was drafted by the Patriots in 2000. He was a sixth-round pick, pick 199. In those 20 years, Brady with the Patriots won six super bowls and won three MVPs. Brady’s best performance with the Patriots was during Superbowl 51. The Patriots and Brady were down by 25 points to the Atlanta Falcons. Brady got the Patriots to overtime with the game tied 28-28. Brady led an eight-play drive that ended with Brady tossing to running back James White. White ran it in to win the game. This was the biggest comeback in Superbowl history. Brady before retiring was able to play, and beat his former team. He also broke the most passing yards in league history. Brady is leaving the NFL with many career records. He is a seven-time Superbowl champion. He has five Superbowl MVPs. He has three regular-season MVPs. He has the most career touchdown passes with 624. He has the most career passing yards with 84,520. He has the most Pro Bowl selections with 15. Brady will go down as the greatest player in NFL history. He is also considered to be a top-five athlete of all time.
President Joe Biden made an announcement on Jan. 27 that Justice Steven Breyer will step down from the Supreme Court at the end of the term. Biden was the Senate Judiciary Chair during Breyer’s confirmation hearing. During the 2020 election campaign, Biden said he would nominate a black woman onto the court. Many believe Justice Breyer’s retirement could help Biden. This nomination would help the President with a much-need political win. Biden’s Build Back Better bill is the bill that would help the modern infrastructure has stalled. President Biden’s voting rights legislation has also stalled due to two democratic holdouts. The 83-year-old justice was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1994. Before his nomination to the court, he was a U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit judge. Breyer was the oldest justice on the bench. Breyer was known for his pragmatism on the bench. In his retirement speech, Breyer pulled out the Constitution to show that the American experience can still work, even during these polarizing times. Breyer was a moderate liberal during his time on the bench. He believed that the constitution should change with the times. He was most noted to write his dissenting piece about the death penalty. He argued that the court should look at if the death penalty is even constitutional. The question now for President Biden will be which Black woman will he nominate to the Supreme Court. 51-year-old Ketanji Brown Jackson graduated from Harvard Law school and was a former clerk for Justice Breyer. She is now a U.S. Court of Appeals-DC Circuit courts and is the frontrunner to replace Justice Breyer. Leondra Kruger is another top candidate to replace Justice Breyer. She is one of the California Supreme Court justices and was the acting deputy general during the Obama administration. She is a former Justice Department lawyer who has argued cases to the high court. Biden will announce his pick by the end of February.
The Michigan Wolverines, the No.2 ranked team in the country beat the No.13 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes, 42-3. Under head coach Jim Harbaugh this is Michigan’s first appearance and win in the BIG 10 Championship. The Wolverines game plan under Defensive Coordinator Mike Macdonald, was to stop the Iowa bootlegs, stop the run and contain tight end Sam LaPorta. Tyler Goodson, Iowa’s best running back only had 55 yards of rushing. In the second half, Macdonald sent an extra man to cover the bootlegs. Sam LaPorta was targeted 11 times and received 62 yards. Michigan’s defense held Iowa to only three points. The Wolverine defense even came up with a big fourth-down stop toward the end of the third quarter. The Wolverines game plan offensively was to do what it has done best to run the football. In the first quarter, Michigan jumped out to a 14-0 lead. The first was a Blake Corum run that went for 67 yards for the touchdown. The next Michigan score came from wide receiver Donavan Edwards throwing a 75-yard touchdown throw to Roman Wilson on a trick play. These two touchdowns were a sign of Michigan’s dominance. Michigan jumped out to a 14-0 lead. This was possible by a Blake Corum 67 yard touchdown run and Roman Wilson catching a trick play pass from Donavan Edwards. Wilson went 75 yards for the score. Iowa was able to get three points on the board because Michigan’s quarterback Cade McNamara threw an interception. After the interception, Iowa went down the field but failed to score. They kicked a 22-yard field goal which was good. In the second quarter, Michigan and Iowa’s offenses stalled while both defenses were able to shine. Iowa’s punt team was able to put Michigan closer to the end zone so the drives would have to be longer for Michigan. Iowa’s offense was put into very long third downs where Michigan’s defense was able to stop. Neither team scored in the 2nd quarter. In the third quarter, Iowa had received the 2nd half kickoff. Sam LaPorta was able to complete a third down and ten, with a good catch and run. Two plays later, Michigan came with a blitz to stop the third down. With this, Michigan was able to go 10 plays, 82 yards, 05:04 for the score. Hasan Haskins ran the ball into the endzone with the four-yard score. Michigan was up 21-3. The next Iowa drive was stopped short on 4th and three where Tyler Goodson caught the ball but was behind the line of scrimmage. Now Michigan put on the final touches on Iowa. Michigan went in four plays, one of them a 22-yard one-handed catch by Luke Schoolmaker to set up Hasan Haskins to have Michigan go up 28-3. After Iowa went three and out, Michigan went on an 8 play drive to set up Cade McNamara to throw a five-yard touchdown to Eric All. Michigan was now up 35-3. The final Michigan touchdown was started when Caden Kolesar intercepted quarterback Alex Padilla. Then freshman quarterback J.J. Mcarthy hands off to Donavan Edwards for the final Michigan touchdown. Michigan dominated all three phases of the game. They came into the season unranked. Jim Harghbug’s future at the program was at stake. Now with the win over Ohio State and a win in Indianapolis, Harghbaugh is able to stay on the program till 2025. No.2 ranked Michigan will play No.3 ranked Georgia in the College Football Playoff semifinal game at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla. This game will be Friday, December 31 on ESPN.
The IUPUI men’s soccer team falls at home in a conference matchup with the Oakland Golden Grizzlies. In the Horizon League standings, Oakland is ranked No. while IUPUI is ranked No 9. IUPUI lost 1-0 to the Grizzlies. In the first half, IUPUI and Oakland had some chances to score. At the 3 minute mark, Micah Sonnenberg of the Grizzlies got fouled by IUPUI’s Captain Tommy Patacca. This would set up a penalty kick for the Golden Grizzlies. The penalty kick would fail. This would set up one of the closest shots to the goal for Oakland in the first half. The score was 0-0 at halftime. In the second half, IUPUI had six chances to score. Instead, Oakland was able to score. At the 74:09 or 15:09, IUPUI two players go caught and Oakland player Dylan Borczak scored. This was a defensive giveaway by IUPUI. IUPUI Captain Tommy Patacca broke down the defensive error, “It was an awkward play and it got between two of our guys and it was unfortunate and unlucky,” he said. Over the season IUPUI can show they can score and defend all their games. It’s been the final minutes where something goes wrong. Head coach Brain Barnett addressed this season’s struggles. “This season the story is we can attack and establish with good looks and fail to score to win games. We don’t get things done in the final 30 minutes of the game due to not scoring or failing to attack,” he said. IUPUI has two games left before the Horizon League tournament starts. IUPUI’s chances of making the tournament are very slim. “It’s really up to us to finish strong, we have a heart and the soul but now we have to finish strong and make a legacy for next season,” Patacca said. “ Really for us now for these final two games it’s interesting to see where we stack up and continue on the attack and learn how to win games by attacking and defending,” Barnett said.

At IUPUI, many don’t know about all of the great things that happen on campus. IUPUI sports are not well known like IU and Purdue and struggle with attendance at games. A group of fellow IUPUI Jaguars are looking to change that, by making their very own student section, the Jagpound. IUPUI junior, Jacob Clamme, is studying mechanical engineering. He is the Founder of Jagpound. “The Jagpound is the official student section of IUPUI,” Clamme said. “We started it my freshman year during basketball season. It started with me and a few of my friends when we started to go to basketball games and there wasn’t really an organized student section, so we started doing our own chants even though there were only four of us to start.” IUPUI junior, Josh Samuel, is studying Biomedical Engineering and is the co-founder of Jagpound. “The Jagpound is the official student section of IUPUI and it started with just four of us during our freshman year, but we were able to integrate into SAPB and grow them as well,” Samuel said. After the 2020-2021 school year, the Jagpound wants to find new fans and new energy to help support the Jaguars. “2020-2021 was a tough year for the Jagpound, but we chose to use this year to raise awareness of our new organization,” Samuel said. “This included t-shirts, giveaways, sand volleyball tournaments, and more. This year has the potential to be great. I feel like a lot of students are itching to, and are getting to get out there and support IUPUI athletics since it is a large part of any college experience.” Samuel said. During the college experience, taking classes are very important but so is getting a fun experience. “They can join the Spirit Committee within [SAPB] to be part of the leadership team,” Clamme said. “They can also sign up for text alerts by texting @jagpound to 81010.” Anyone can get involved by joining the section during any home game. If you want to become a full-fledged spirit committee member, you can contact SAPB through the Spot. Follow Jagpound on Twitter and on Instagram @jagpound.
