This Week in IU Sports:

The women closed their regular season in grand fashion. The Hoosiers' 71-54 win against Maryland locked up a second consecutive undefeated home conference season. After #6 Iowa defeated #2 Ohio State, the Hoosiers secured the third seed in the Big Ten Conference Tournament. Indiana plays Friday, March 8th, because of the double bye.

Hopefully, Mackenzie Holmes is healthy after sustaining an injury in their home finale.

The Men are Looking Good

Although the season has not gone the way head coach Mike Woodson and the Hoosiers wanted, they've played better basketball, winning their last two games. If the season ended today, they'd be playing Michigan State in their first game as a ninth seed. They have two games left, including the season finale against Michigan State.

Baseball Struggles in Frisco; Softball continues to Roll

After winning four of five games, the Hoosiers have struggled at the Frisco Classic, dropping all three games in Texas, including a 12-0 shutout against Alabama. They are home against North Alabama on March 6th.

Softball dominated the Hoosier Classic, sweeping Bowling Green and Valparaiso. After another home game against Western Kentucky, they prepare for the Hoosier Classic beginning March 8th.

Around the Country

Caitlin Clark has the all-time scoring mark, breaking Kelsey Plum's record. She also broke the conference mark for three-pointers. Finally, she broke Pete Maravich's Division I scoring record. South Carolina women's basketball has won 45 consecutive SEC Conference games.

The College Football Playoff Committee approved the 5+7 model for the 12 team playoff. They are now discussing a 14-team model. The purpose seems to be to give more automatic bids for the big two: The Big Ten and SEC.

The NFL Combine concluded on Sunday. Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy was the talk of the combine, breaking Tyreek Hill's 40-yard dash time of 4.22, running a 4.21.
