Ali Patberg will return to play for IU during the 2021-22 season


Senior guard Ali Patberg has decided to use her last year of eligibility to compete for IU for one final season, according to a tweet she posted Wednesday evening. 

“See you next season Hoosiers!,” the post reads.

Her announcement also mentions she feels there is unfinished business for IU women’s basketball. Patberg saw her team fall to the University of Arizona in the Elite Eight on Monday after she put up 12 points but struggled from the 3-point line, going 0-3.
