While men's basketball is the obvious draw, other varsity sports are not overlooked. The stands are usually filled when the men's soccer team plays. Women's basketball coach Kathi Bennett led the Lady Hoosiers to their first-ever Big Ten Tournament win in 2002, and that program continues to improve steadily. Also to be considered are the Hoosiers' record-shattering six consecutive NCAA swimming titles, the valiant annual efforts of the football team (students still need an excuse to tailgate in the fall, regardless of the team's dismal record) and an endless succession of winning seasons for the baseball team. It would be a serious faux pas to leave out one of IU's most popular traditions, the Little 500 bicycle race in the spring.
If sitting on the sidelines isn't enough, athletically-inclined students are very much encouraged to participate in intramurals. Every type of competition from volleyball to indoor soccer is offered, including non-physical tournaments like Euchre and sports trivia. The divisions have something for every skill level and are advertised all over campus, including in the dorms. In fact, RAs will often organize an IM sports team as a floor activity. Sports can be a big part of the IU experience, if you want them to be. Just peek your head out of your dorm room and you'll feel the thrill that is IU athletics!
