The Big Ten Conference announced Monday that IU will play at Wake Forest in the upcoming 2018-19 Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
This will be the third time in program history the Hoosiers will face the Demon Deacons, with the other two games coming in 2006 and 2007. In 2006, IU got a 73-53 win in the Women's Sports Foundation Classic in Lexington, Kentucky, but lost the rematch the following season, 55-53, at the US Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.
Wake Forest is coming off a 2017-18 season which saw it finish 14-17 overall with a 5-11 record in the ACC. Their returning leading scorer is senior forward Elisa Penna with 15.8 points per game, while their leading rebounder is junior guard Alex Sharp, who averaged 8.4 rebounds in 2017-18.
The game is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 28, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with a tip-off time to be announced at a later date.
