Although the IU women’s basketball team will play its final regular-season game on Sunday, they want to go much further.
In her first two seasons with the Hoosiers, IU coach Felisha Legette-Jack has taken the team to the WNIT, but this year she hopes for a different scenario.
“We are practicing our new moves so we can have a real good dance,” Legette-Jack said. “The party and dance that is the most significant is the NCAA, and we want to be invited to that party.”
After Sunday’s game, the Hoosiers, currently sixth in conference standings, will have only the Big Ten Tournament remaining to strengthen their NCAA tournament resume.
Senior Whitney Thomas said the team’s effort is important, but for her final season, she said the results are even more significant.
“We want to give it all we have,” Thomas said. “That’s what we play every day for. We want to make it to the post-season. We don’t want anything less than that NCAA tournament.”
