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).

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.
