    BLOOMINGTON, iND. - Coming off a great start to the 2007 season, the Hoosiers will look to keep things going this weekend with two home games.

After taking Saturday off, Indiana will return to its home turf against Saint Louis on Sunday.

    The game on Friday will start at 3 p.m. while the game on Sunday will be 1 p.m. About 15 minutes prior to the start of the Sunday game, the Hoosiers will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to dedicate the new field.
