Women's basketball looks to remain unbeaten in home game vs Memphis

Women's Basketball v. St. Bonaventure

The IU women’s basketball team faces its third test of the season at 7 p.m. today against Memphis at Assembly Hall.

The Hoosiers are coming off a perfect 2-0 start to the season after victories against Ball State and St. Bonaventure.

The Tigers (1-1) will rely on the inside scoring ability of junior forward Jasmine Lee, who transferred from Georgia last year. Against Grambling State on Monday, Lee recorded her first career double-double, leading her team with 21 points and 13 rebounds.

IU coach Felisha Legette-Jack’s team will try to counter Memphis’ powerful inside game with a stingy defense, which has held opponents to an average of 55 points while forcing a total of 47 turnovers.

On offense, the Hoosiers continue to receive quality minutes from guard Alisha “Goody” Goodwin. The junior transfer from Jefferson College has averaged the team’s third-highest point total with 11.5 points per game while playing the fifth-lowest amount of minutes per game, 16.5.

Fellow guard senior Jori Davis continues to assert herself as the team’s leader. Her 32 points and 21 rebounds this year are both team highs.

In order to beat the Tigers and keep their record spotless, the Hoosiers will look to win the battle on the glass for rebounds as well as continue to score points off turnovers.
