IU excels at its Indiana home, falters on road

After a loss Sunday at home to conference foe Northwestern, the IU women’s basketball team now stands at 5-12, including a 0-4 start in the Big Ten. But even with only two wins thus far in Assembly Hall, the Hoosiers do seem to show an advantage when playing on Branch McCracken Court. They’ve won by almost six more points when in Bloomington, and their losses have been much closer as they lose by seven points fewer on
