SERIES HISTORY

First meeting

 

NOTES

Indiana opened up the season on Thursday night with a 75-52 win over Mount St. Mary's at home. Sophomore guard Grace Berger led the way with a new career-high 24 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals. Her 24 points were the third most in a season opener since 2003-04.

Freshman forward Mackenzie Holmes also ended up in double figures in her collegiate debut with 15 points and seven rebounds while shooting 6-for-9 from the floor.

They were also picked to finish third (media)/fourth (coaches) in the Big Ten preseason polls.

In addition to All-Big Ten honors, redshirt junior guard Ali Patberg has pulled in a variety of nominations to national awards watch lists. The Columbus, Ind. native is one of 20 point guards on the Nancy Lieberman Award preseason watch list, a Wooden Award Preseason Top 30 candidate and is on the Women's Citizen Naismith Trophy Watch List Top 50.

The Hoosiers went 21-13 overall in 2018-19 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament second round. They defeated five teams with Top 50 RPIs and took down two Top 15 teams for the first time since 2002-

Patberg leads a group of four starters that return for the 2019-20 season. She led the way with 15.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game as an All-Big Ten second team selection in 2018-19. All-Big Ten picks Jaelynn Penn (13.9 ppg.) and Brenna Wise (12.0 ppg, 6.8 rpg.) are also back while junior guard Bendu Yeaney continues to rehab a torn Achilles suffered in the NCAA Tournament last season.

From last season, Indiana returns 91 percent of its scoring and 72 percent of its rebounding from last season.

Seven new faces were added to the roster in the offseason, including six freshmen. It's the largest class of freshmen in six years led by 2019 Indiana Miss Basketball Jorie Allen and Maine Gatorade Player of the Year Mackenzie Holmes.

 

UP NEXT

The Hoosiers wrap up the homestand on Sunday, November 17 against Jackson State. Game time is set for 2 p.m. ET.

Patberg with 7 assists already! Hope your weekend finishes better than it started. 

Appreciate it!  Car broke down outside of Cincinnati (clutch pack, could be entire transmission, and it's a hybrid). Had to get a tow truck to get car to only mechanic open, then had to get an Uber to Cincinnati airport to get rental car, then have to get it towed back to dealer (70 miles away) to see if they'll honor a bulletin (one step short of a recall).  But, if you're ever around Cleves Ohio, I absolutely cannot recommened NK&L Auto enough!  They were legit the nicest people ever (bonus point, they have a Great Dane!)

So what you're really saying is, a Garcia signing and IUFB /IUWBB top 25, would ease the mental exhaustion a little.  It's so nice to hear about the good, honest small people out there! Good luck.

Final Box Score

Game Summary

I think our freshman MacKenzie Holmes knows how to play this game --  22 pts on 9-9 FG and 4-5 FT and added 5 reb.   Chanel Wilson bouncing back from her injuries with 10 pts. and 7 assists.  It's early and the competition has been weak but it sure looks like we've got a really strong arsenal and have some really solid strength coming off the bench.

Appreciate the kind words! It got to the point of being a “Planes Trains and Automobiles” kind of day. But, we were safe, people were fantastic, I had money to cover expenses, and I got to have a Big Boy at Frisch’s!!
