IU women’s basketball adds two guards to its roster


IU women’s basketball announced Wednesday the addition of guard duo Nicole Cardaño-Hillary and Chloe Moore-McNeil to next season’s roster.

Cardaño-Hillary transferred from George Mason University after playing three seasons and starting every game. She was the 2017-18 rookie of the year in the Atlantic 10 Conference and was the conference Player of the Year a season ago. 

“Nicole is a proven player and has performed at a very high level,” IU head coach Teri Moren said in a press release. “We are excited to bring her into our program and get the chance to work with her and help elevate her game.”

As a junior this past season, Cardaño-Hillary averaged 18.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. This performance earned her a spot on the Atlantic 10 Second Team.

Cardaño-Hillary leaves the Patriots as the all-time scoring leader and fourth all-time for three-pointers — a weaker segment of the Hoosiers’ offense.

“Nicole's ability to score, while also getting others involved, mesh with our system. She has the potential to be a very good player for us,” Moren said.

Moore-McNeil is from Greenfield, Tennessee, where she led her high school team to three district championships. In her senior year, Moore-McNeil averaged 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game while shooting 40% from behind the arc. 

She will add perimeter shooting to the IU offense in her freshman year. Moore-McNeil’s height at the guard position will also help the IU forwards on the rebounding front. 

“Chloe is a player that we have been tracking for a long time,” Moren said. “Chloe is very versatile and will be able to provide length and activity on defense for us.”
