Women's basketball falls to Georgia

The IU women’s basketball team’s defense could not put a stop to No. 18 Georgia’s offensive output Sunday.

Georgia (3-0) defeated the Hoosiers (2-2) in Athens, Ga. by a score of 84-51. IU was down early and could not seem to stop the Bulldogs’ runs throughout the rest of the game.

IU coach Felisha Legette-Jack did see some positives from her team offensively as three players finished in double digits.

“I love the fact that there were some good things that came from our guard play,” Legette-Jack said. “I think that our team has learned a lesson and will continue to get better for the month of March.”

Senior guards Whitney Lindsay and Jori Davis finished with 13 and 10 points, respectively. Senior forward Hope Elam led the Hoosiers in another outstanding offensive performance with 16 points.

After impressive 3-point shooting against Memphis, the Hoosiers shot only 25.9 percent from behind the arc in Sunday’s game.

The Bulldogs were much stronger on the boards with a 44-28 advantage against the Hoosiers.  

Offense was the key for Georgia; the Bulldogs finished shooting 50 percent from the field. The team had 23 points off the Hoosiers’ 20 turnovers and had 28 points off the bench.

IU’s next game is 7 p.m. Wednesday against St. Louis at Assembly Hall.
