IU comeback attempt fails in Iowa

Some things never change. And for the Hoosiers, not being able to win in Iowa City, Iowa, has become a trend.

After Sunday’s loss to Illinois, 61-52, the IU women’s basketball team will look to get back on track today.

Reshaping women’s basketball

Most coaches hate road games.

However, IU women’s basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack said she doesn’t mind them.

Big 1st half pushes IU past Wolverines

After an emotional win against your bitter in-state rival, you can go one of two ways: You can either use the victory as momentum for the next game, or you can have a letdown.
Well, at least for Thursday night, the Hoosiers chose the former.

Senior Forward Whitney Thomas and Senior Guard/Forward Kim Roberson successfully prevent a Purdue offensive player from making a basket. After a very close first half, the Hoosiers won 71-57 against the Boilermakers Monday evening at Assembly Hall.

Hoosiers’ goal: Stay present

The IU women’s basketball team captured its first victory against Purdue in Assembly Hall in nearly a decade on Monday.

With the win, the Hoosiers are now atop the Big Ten and off to their best start in 25 years, but they have much more they want to accomplish this season.

The next step comes Thursday when IU (13-3, 6-1) travels to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take on the Wolverines (9-9, 2-5).

Coach: ‘Ladies became women’ with win

Despite senior forward Whitney Thomas and sophomore guard Jori Davis going a combined 3-for-19 from the field and combining for just 15 points, the IU women’s basketball team overcame a four-point halftime deficit to defeat Miami (Fla.) 69-54 in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge.

In the second half, the Hoosiers (5-2) outscored the Hurricanes 41-22 and shot 52 percent from the field.

Hot first half leads women's basketball team past Greyhounds

The IU women’s basketball team was once again impressive last night. This time, they showed their talents off to the Indianapolis Greyhounds in an 82-56 victory.

The Greyhounds scored at the 15:04 mark in the first half to make it 7-2 in favor of the Hoosiers. After, Indianapolis did not score until 6:58 left in the half. A scoreless drought of more than eight minutes. The Greyhounds’ next bucket made it 30-5, and the rout was on.

Women's basketball rolls over Southern Indiana

Shooting less than 48 percent from the free-throw line usually doesn’t bode well for winning basketball games – unless a team converts nearly 55 percent of its field goals and 63 percent of its 3-point shots.

The IU women’s basketball team followed this model in its 93-49 victory against Southern Indiana in its first exhibition game of the season Saturday.
