    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana's Crimson Guard has advanced to the semifinal round of the inaugural Naismith Student Section of the Year Award balloting. With nearly 80 Division I basketball schools vying for the award, the field was narrowed to only 16 semifinal schools that are eligible to take home the top prize. As the nation's largest basketball student section, IU Athletics is asking for fan support to help win the prestigious title by voting.
