Yikes. South Carolina the first night, and Baylor the second? ... That could be a couple losses totaling 80 or more points.

Aw c'mon Lamar.  We're not going to be chopped liver next season and we're certainly not going to be an inexperienced team.  We get beat, we get beat, but I kind of like the fact we're going to play that caliber of competition early on and see just what we do have.

Hopefully Bendu will be back from her Achilles. They will need her. Coach Moren has a solid recruiting class coming in with a good core returning. IU women’s team has a chance to be very good. Definitely will face a challenge early.
