IUWBB Offseason Updates

And the already rich just get richer in women's bball:

Azura Stevens, an All-ACC first-team selection for Duke last season, will join the four-time defending champion Connecticut Huskies as a transfer, the school announced Saturday.

Stevens, a 6-foot-6 sophomore center, averaged a team-high 18.9 points and 9.6 rebounds last season for the Blue Devils. She will have to sit out the 2016-17 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

"We don't usually get involved in transfer situations but this particular one was intriguing," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said in a statement. "Getting the chance to speak with Azura and having her on campus to meet with the coaches and the players really convinced us and her that this was the right place for her going forward.

"We are excited and anxious to get Azurá up here and start summer school and look forward to her being a part of our team."

Overall, Stevens averaged 16.2 points and 8.8 rebounds in 58 games over two seasons at Duke.

IU @ NC State 12/1/16 ( ACC/B1G Challenge).

The Indiana women's basketball team will take to the road to face off with NC State in the 10th annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Dec. 1, 2016.  Both conferences made the official announcement of this year's pairings on Wednesday.
Indiana has won four straight ACC/Big Ten Challenge games heading into 2016-17 downing Clemson (2012), Virginia Tech (2013), Boston College (2014) and Georgia Tech (2015) during that stretch.  The Hoosiers are 6-3 all-time in the event. This year will be IU's first road game in the challenge since the Dec. 3, 2014 win at Boston College. 
The Hoosiers will meet NC State for the fourth time in program history and for the first time in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.  The Wolfpack finished 20-11 overall last season and tied for fifth in the ACC with a 10-6 record in conference play.
