Sports Minute: Here is the latest Indiana sports news from The Associated Press

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Jordan Barnes totaled 22 points on 6-of-9 shooting from 3-point range and Indiana State dominated the second half and beat Green Bay 85-63 on Tuesday night. Barnes, who topped 20 points for a fourth-straight game, added six assists and four rebounds for the Sycamores (5-5). Brenton Scott tallied 17 points and four steals and Brandon Murphy scored 12. Indiana State beat the Phoenix (3-6) for the first time since 2011.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Paul George knows the crowd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse well enough to expect a rude reception when he returns for the first time to play the Indiana Pacers, after spending seven seasons with them. After last season, George's camp made it clear Indiana didn't figure into his long-term plans, so the disappointed Pacers traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder. George says the boos will give him energy to play harder. The teams meet Wednesday in Indianapolis.

CHICAGO (AP) - USA Gymnastics says it has banned an Illinois coach after an investigation revealed he violated its code of ethical conduct by engaging in a sexual relationship with an athlete. The Indianapolis-based organization says Todd Gardiner has been placed on its list of coaches permanently ineligible to coach in USA Gymnastics. Gardiner had worked with the Illinois Gymnastics Institute in Westmont, a suburb of Chicago. Gardiner is not charged with any crimes, and USA Gymnastics released no details about when the alleged relationship occurred. A message left at a phone number listed for a Todd Gardiner in suburban Chicago was not immediately returned.
