Yogi tracker
As will be the story with most every passing game this season, Yogi Ferrell continues to climb the all-time lists at Indiana.

The junior passed both Quinn Buckner and Jeff Newton on Wednesday night against Maryland to move into 34th on the all-time scoring list with 1,209 career points. He is just eight points away from Tom Coverdale in 33rd and 11 points shy of Steve Downing in 32nd.

The six assists against the Terps bumped Ferrell past Verdell Jones III and Stew Robinson to eighth on the all-time IU assists list with 392 and needs 11 assists to catch A.J. Guyton for seventh.

Ferrell also made six 3-pointers at Maryland to reach 172 made 3s for his career, breaking a tie with Damon Bailey for eighth all-time at Indiana. Kyle Hornsby is just six ahead in seventh. Meanwhile, Ferrell has now surpassed Hornsby for career 3-point attempts with 432, still 24 behind Brian Evans in sixth.

The first made 3 of the game also extended Ferrell’s school-record streak to 56 consecutive games. Guyton held the previous mark with 33 consecutive games with a made 3.

Oladipo dunking cancer
Former Hoosier Victor Oladipo announced Wednesday that he will be donating a portion of his NBA All-Star Weekend Slam Dunk Contest winnings to three different cancer charities.

The contest winner receivers $100,000, with the runner-up getting $50,000. The third and fourth place finishers get $20,000 each.

The recipients of Oladipo’s donations were chosen to represent the different phases of his life. He is working with non-profit organization Dunk Cancer to contribute to the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center and to the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute that Orlando Magic executive Pat Williams helped build.

All or nothing
The Indiana women’s basketball team has won just four Big Ten games this season, but those four wins — all at Assembly Hall — have been by an average margin of 20 points per game after Wednesday’s night’s 85-58 shellacking of Illinois. Those four wins have also come against four of the five teams tied or below the Hoosiers in the standings.

The trouble is that Indiana has yet to beat any of the league’s top eight teams and has suffered five double-digit losses of its own along the way.

The Hoosiers now sit 14-10 overall with five regular season games remaining — all against teams above them in the standings — and need to win at least once to stay above .500 and keep postseason hopes alive.
