IU, Purdue women reschedule game

WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — The Indiana-Purdue women’s basketball game that was postponed Monday because of bad weather has been rescheduled for Jan. 17 at 7 p.m.

Purdue, which hosts the game, made the announcement Wednesday.

The Hoosiers (14-0) made their first Top 25 appearance of the season this week at No. 22.

No. 21 Purdue (10-3) visits Northwestern on Thursday.

The in-state rivalry was postponed late last week when it became clear travel would be difficult throughout Indiana because a major snowstorm was going to be followed by frigid temperatures.

Landry returns to Colts’ practice

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts safety LaRon Landry was a full participant at Wednesday’s practice and coaches are hopeful he will play in Saturday night’s playoff game at New England.

Landry left last weekend’s game with a concussion. Defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said Landry looked “ready to roll.”

Landry’s return would be a boost for Indy (12-5), which is missing starting cornerback Greg Toler. He left Indy’s 45-44 victory over Kansas City after aggravating a groin injury that had slowed him since mid-October. Toler was put on season-ending injured reserve earlier this week.
