All IU in the first half with a 50-26 lead over Mount St. Mary's.  Grace Berger doing her Al Durham impersonation with a perfect shooting night.  She has 18 pts. on 6-6 FG; 3-3 on 3s; 3-3 FT; 5 reb; 2 asst. in 15. min. of action.  Freshman McKenzie Holmes has 11 pts. and 4 reb.   Patberg with 7 assts.

3rd Q left a lot to be desired even though we maintained a 20+ point lead.  END OF THIRD: No. 24 Indiana 66, Mount St. Mary's 43 … Hoosiers just 5-of-18 from the field in the frame and committed six fouls.  I must have jinxed Grace Berger as she's missed 4 shots in this half.

Not able to listen- am I seeing Patberg got a T?


3 minutes ago, mamasa said:

And Penn w 0?

Right on both counts.  Radio called it a frustration T.  She'd been roughed up on her 2 prior possessions and then was called for a travel.  Don't know exactly what she did or said that got the T.     As for Penn, she's simply not in the offensive flow as she's played 22 minutes with time running out.

Game was over long ago but the final score reads 75-52.   Berger ends up with a career high 24 pts. on 8-13 FG; 3-6 on 3s; 5-5 FT; 7 reb; 4 assts.  McKenzie Holmes with 15 pts. on 6-9 FG and 3-4 FT.  Freshman Jorie Allen got a rude welcome to the college game picking up 4 fouls in 13 min.  We got sloppy in the 2nd half and overall committed 18 TOs and only shot 62% (13-21) from the line.   We had 17 assists on 28 made baskets with 8 coming from Patberg.   Berger and Holmes each with 7 reb. as we won the rebounding battle 42-25.  Next up is a Sunday home game against Nicholls State.

Hoping CTM running scenarios for different situations. But , saw that Penn experiencing plantar fasciitis in both feet, maybe trying to find her balance

Post-game story on Chanel Wilson and her recovery from 2 separate ACL tears from Jared Rigdon at IUHoosiers.com

Two Years In the Making, Chanel Wilson ‘Blessed’ To Check-In For #iuwbb

She checked in with 3:14 left in the first quarter Thursday night.
It was nothing more than a routine substitution for IU head coach Teri Moren but it marked the first regular season action that redshirt freshman Chanel Wilson had seen in her collegiate career.
Wilson sat out the entire season last year after recovering from her second torn ACL she suffered at the end of her high school career – just after Moren watched her play on Senior Day in February 2018. It followed up a tear she suffered as a junior nearly a year prior in the early days of February 2017.
She was forced to be nothing more than a cheerleader as IU followed up a WNIT championship with a trip to the NCAA Tournament and a first round victory over Texas.
"It was a blessing," Wilson said. "I've sat out almost two years. Sitting out was very tough so getting to play again is a blessing."
Just 1:37 after checking in for the first time, Wilson buried a three-pointer from the top of the key. 22 seconds later, she hit another three-pointer, almost from the near exact spot.
If she can provide a consistent scoring option off the bench, IU will gain something it often lacked last year; bench scoring.
IU returns the core of last year's roster with players like senior forward Brenna Wise, junior guard Jaelynn Penn and redshirt junior guard Ali Patberg but also adds key pieces to the backcourt with Wilson. Her ability to play the point guard opens up the offense and allows it to play faster.
She will serve as another point guard option, lightning the load for Patberg who averaged 35.5 minutes per game last season and is still working back into playing shape.
"Chanel certainly gives us a good backup point guard," Moren said. "She and Ali [Patberg] different in terms of speed and quickness. What is nice is that they can both stretch you out. Chanel has shown and proven in practice that she can knock down the three with a lot of confidence."
She still wears a long brace on her right leg, a sign that two ACL surgeries are still not that far out of her rearview mirror. But if history is any indication, she's a winner. She won three 6A state titles in Georgia at powerhouse McEachern High School.
Wilson's return to the court was overshadowed on a night where sophomore Grace Berger broke her career high in points in the first half and finished with 24 overall.
The redshirt freshman Wilson finished with nine points on three-of-seven shooting in IU's 75-52 win over Mount St. Mary's to kickoff the 2019-20 campaign.   [she played 13 min.]
But it's Wilson's fiery personality and spirited play makes her standout on the court. She wears a black Adidas headband and a white undershirt with sleeves that come down to just above her elbows. And she just makes plays.
Last year she was the hype-man on the bench, cheering on her teammates as they played their way to a successful season.
"Regardless of the battles I was facing, I had to be there for my teammates," Wilson said. "I can't put that on them. My job was to be a supporter and cheer for them and make sure they had the energy they needed."
Now it's her turn to be the recipient of that energy.
Before the half she gets fouled going for a three-point attempt. At the 5:05 mark in the third quarter she drives to her right, throwing in a basket before getting fouled for an-and-one opportunity.
She walks around the court with a smile always on her face. Even when she's called for a foul on a block, she has a smirk in the corner of her face. For her, it's just a joy to be back on the court playing basketball.
For the rest of IU, it's a joy to have Wilson back in the rotation, playing a crucial role it needs serviced.
