NOTES

  • Indiana and Michigan meet for the only time this season in the regular season finale.
  • The Hoosiers will be going for win No. 13 in Big Ten play, which would set a new program record. Indiana previously won 12 games in the 2015-16 campaign. A win would also move Indiana to 23-7 and tie the program record for wins in a season (2017-18).
  • The Hoosiers are also looking to snap an eight-game skid inside Crisler Center and pick up its first win in Ann Arbor for the first time since 2009. The home team in the series has won every meeting between the two schools since 2015.
  • They are coming off an 81-53 Senior Night win over Nebraska to close out the home portion of its regular season schedule. Redshirt junior Ali Patberg led four players in double figures with 26 points. It marked her 23rd double figure scoring game of the season and 12th consecutive game with 10 points or more.
  • Sophomore guard Grace Berger added 15 points in Thursday's win, her third-consecutive contest in double figures.

Lady Hoosiers closing out the season looking like they’ve figured a few things out that had them playing some unnecessary close games during that little lull. Getting better contributions from the whole lineup. Looks like we will be the 4 seed with a matchup with OSU in the quarters and then Maryland waiting in the semis. Think the Terps just have too much for us, but 24-8 heading into the dance is a pretty good season and likely gets us a 5-seed. Great season. Think next year we will have a real shot at winning the conference.

Our last win at Michigan was January 2009 until today as we took control in the second half and won handily 78-60.  This was our 13th conference win, an IUWBB program record. 

Michigan’s 3rd Q scoring drought extended into the 4th Q and lasted a total of 6:30 minutes.  Michigan averages 70 ppg and could only manage 60 today against our defense as we held them to 33% shooting for the game.  Naz Hillmon Michigan’s leading scorer at 17.3 ppg was held in check today as she only scored 11 points and only attempted 3 FG.  Our margin of victory is even more impressive as Michigan dominated the backboards and had 19 offensive rebounds.

Points:  Patberg 21; Penn 14; Berger 13; Holmes 12; Gulbe9; Wise 6.  This was Patberg’s 4th 20-point game in a row.

Rebounds:  Wise 7; Holmes 4; Gulbe; Penn; Patberg each with 3

Assists:  Patberg 7; Penn 3; Berger 2

TO:  15                                              Steals:  12

FG:  52%                       FT:  80%

Michgan FG:  33%               Michigan FT:  68%

Really, really impressive. Absolutely embarrassed a quality NCAA Tournament in Michigan on their own floor. We were really impressive on the road in Big Ten play this year at 7-2 and beat Michigan, Rutgers and Purdue all who are probably going to NCAA tourney. Also wins against decent Nebraska and Minnesota teams. 

Overall this game best performance since Rutgers early in Big Ten season and 13-5 in Big Ten is best Big Ten record in program history. Next win will be most overall in program history.

That said that home loss to NW is continuing to haunt us. It would not of changed our Big Ten seeding alone but I think it would of locked us into 4 seed in NCAA tournament vs. now we need to beat Maryland. That OSU loss makes no difference on its own in my mind and would be a 4 seed in Big Ten Tourney and 5 seed in NCAA tourney win or lose without Maryland win in Big Ten Tourney. 

We play Rutgers in Big Ten Tourney in a bit of a break as they moved up to 5 and dropped OSU to 6. 2:30pm Friday. Glad to be done with home games probably as we have played much better on road and neutral sites.

Nope Rutgers in Big Ten tourney which is probably a break.

So, what do we think? Does IU have a puncher’s chance of getting to host a couple NCAA tourney games? Looking at scores today and we got some pretty good help with Kentucky, Arizona, FSU, Iowa and DePaul all losing to unranked teams.

Not unless we beat Maryland. If you wanted to be in line to host now don't lose to NW. That OSU game will make no difference seeding wise as frustrating as it was. 

Kind of prefer we don't host as we have played far better on road and neutral sites then at home. Being sent to Chicago as a 5 seed with DePaul as 4 would be ideal as a close site and gives us golden chance at programs first Sweet 16.

I didn't see it personally, but a friend of mine told me ESPN's bracketology guru said we have a good chance of being in the top 16 during tonight's final NCAA reveal. 

I think they fall just short but would love to be wrong:). Think they need to somehow beat Maryland to be a be 4 otherwise 5. 

I would kind of rather travel as 5 seed as IU has been better on road and neutral sites then at home.

Update: Charlie Creme has moved us to a 4 and home games so maybe beating Rutgers is enough but I don't think so.

Bracket he has is a dream world and would be a massive disappointment if we don't go to Sweet 16 as our 5 would be Princeton who is a mid-major who has had a great season and is the type of team I always want to play in second round..

That guy has Purdue in the tournament when they're 17-13, had a losing conference record and haven't beaten a ranked team all season. 

 

Whether it's men or women's basketball, ESPN bracketologists love them some Boilermakers.

I think Boilers (barely) belong in tourney on women's side despite struggles.

Also if you are IU you need PU in tournament if you want that 4 seed as you need to be able to say you swept a tournament team (along with beating a tourney bound Rutgers team twice, a tourney bound Michigan team once and the elite win over South Carolina). If you are IU you need PU in for maximum possible seeding.

Don't get it with men though.

 Redshirt junior guard Ali Patberg has been named the final Big Ten Player of the Week, announced by the league on Monday.
 
Patberg is coming off a week where she averaged 23.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 1.5 blocks and shot 63.3 percent from the floor in a pair of wins over Nebraska and at Michigan.  She also held a +2.2 assist-to-turnover ratio and shot 75 percent at the free throw line. It marks the first Big Ten Player of the Week award honor for the redshirt junior guard.
 
Her efforts led Indiana to finish with its eighth-straight winning record at home as they closed out the regular season against the Huskers and the program's first win at Michigan since 2009.
 
The Columbus, Ind. native led Indiana in scoring in both games last week as she scored 26 points on 11-for-18 shooting on a 4-for-7 effort from the 3-point line against Nebraska. She also added five rebounds, four assists, two steals and block. Against the Wolverines, she was 8-for-12 from the floor for 21 points and 2-for-2 from behind-the-arc. She distributed seven assists, tied a team-high three steals, grabbed three rebounds and had two blocks.
 
She becomes IU's second player to earn Big Ten Player of the Week honors this season with sophomore guard Grace Berger, who won the award on Nov. 25. It marks the first time since the 2005-06 season that Indiana has earned two player of the week honors when Cyndi Valentin won it (Dec. 13, 2005 and Feb. 13, 2006). Patberg was named to the league's honor roll three times previously this season.
