dbo:abstract
  • Gli Indiana State Sycamores sono la squadra di pallacanestro della Indiana State University, con sede a Terre Haute, Indiana, e militano nella Missoury Valley Conference della Division I del campionato di pallacanestro della NCAA. Insieme ai Bucknell Bison, ai Minnesota Golden Gophers e agli Washington Huskies, gli Indiana State Sycamores sono la squadra più antica della NCAA essendo stata fondata nel 1896. La migliore stagione dei Sycamores è stata sicuramente quella 1978-1979 quando il futuro hall of famer Larry Bird condusse la squadra alla finale NCAA contro i Michigan State Spartans di Magic Johnson, finale che i Sycamores persero concludendo la stagione con un record di 33 partite vinte e 1 persa. Attualmente sono allenati da Greg Lansing e giocano all'Hulman Center della Indiana State University. (it)
  • The Indiana State Sycamores basketball is the NCAA Division I men's basketball program of Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana. They currently compete in the Missouri Valley Conference. The team last played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2011. The Sycamores' first season was 1896, making them the oldest basketball team in the NCAA along with Bucknell, Minnesota and Washington; however, the records from 1896 to 1899 no longer exist. The Sycamores boast 2 College Players of the Year, 14 All-Americans, 37 1,000-point scorers and 1,450+ victories. Their victory count places them in the Top 70 of all NCAA Division I programs. In addition, the Sycamores have 26 Post-Season Appearances (7 NCAA, 4 NIT, 1 CBI, 1 CIT, 12 NAIA and the 1936 Olympic Trials) with 5 National Championship Appearances (2 NCAA, 3 NAIA). Seven Sycamores were members of the 1951 Pan-American Games Gold Medal-winning team. The Sycamore's greatest season was 1978–79, when star Larry Bird led an undefeated team to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. However, it lost the national title game versus the Magic Johnson-led Michigan State team; and ended the season with a record of 33–1. This is the deepest run by a first-time participant in the Division I tournament, and one of only three times that a first-time team has advanced as far as the Final Four (UNCC in 1977 and Georgia in 1983). They would not have another postseason appearance of any sort until 2000. The Sycamores were the National Runner-Up in the College Division (now Div II) in 1968 and won the NAIA national title in 1950, with NAIA Finals appearances in 1946 and 1948 and NAIA national semifinals appearances in 1949 and 1953. The Sycamores were led by All-Americans, Duane Klueh, Dick Atha and 6'1" point guard Lenny Rzeszewski. As the program transitioned from NAIA to the NCAA, one last NAIA highlight was Ray Goddard leading the Nation in FT percentage (91.2%) Past coaches include the legendary John Wooden, fellow Purdue University star Dave Schellhase, Indiana coaching legend Glenn M. Curtis and well-known college coaches such as Bob King, Royce Waltman, Tates Locke and Ron Greene. The Indiana State Sycamores men's basketball team currently play their home games at Hulman Center (10,200) and are coached by Greg Lansing. (en)
