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.
