IU looks to continue winning ways in N.J.

The Hoosiers will look to continue their offensive success when they travel to Princeton, N.J., to take on Princeton, Marist and Maryland.

In their two victories last weekend, IU outscored its opponents 22-6. IU coach Barry King said his team is shooting at a higher percentage because it is not settling for outside shots.

“We’ve been working really hard on getting our offense moved down into an attacking space,” King said. “Earlier in the year, we were settling for space eight and nine meters away. We did a much better job against those two squads of pulling the offense into a four and five-meter area. That created much better opportunities to shoot the ball.”

It had been awhile since the Hoosiers tasted victory, as the team has had 20 days between contests and 22 days since its last victory.

Senior attacker Nicole Redder said this weekend’s games against Princeton and Maryland carry an extra level of significance, as both teams are Collegiate Water Polo Association members.

“We want to win those games because they’re important,” Redder said. “They change the rankings a lot. Those games matter more.”
