Sophomore point guard Kaitlin Peterson is departing the Indiana women’s basketball team, a team spokesman told the Hoosier Network.
Coming out of high school in Eufaula, Alabama, Peterson was ranked the No. 41 overall recruit by All Star Girls Report and No. 54 overall by Prospects Nation.
As a freshman last year at Indiana, Peterson played in 21/33 games and averaged 5.5 minutes and 1.5 points. Her best game came on Feb. 9 in a 93-61 victory over Illinois where she played 19 minutes and hit three 3-pointers to finish with 11 points, all career-highs.
Through seven Indiana games this season, Peterson has appeared in six and averaged 12.7 minutes and four points. Her departure leaves 13 players on the roster, with only 11 healthy as graduate student guard Grace Berger and junior forward Kiandra Browne continue to recover from injuries.
Two players also left the Indiana team midseason last year: guard Keyarah Berry and forward Caitlin Hose.
