A few notes on Indiana women’s basketball three weeks into new coach Curt Miller’s tenure.
One of the comments Miller made at his introductory press conference was that IU needed more players. Well, that’s more true than ever now as both 2012 fall signees are headed elsewhere.
Haley Videckis asked Miller for her release after the coaching change, and he granted it while trying to re-recruit Videckis. But she picked up offers from Illinois, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Rutgers and Arizona State, before signing with the Sun Devils on Wednesday.
Also Wednesday, ESPN HoopGurlz reported that Heritage Christian point guard Brittany Webb had decommitted from the Hoosiers. That leaves IU with no incoming recruits at this point, though with nearly 50 coaching changes nationwide, more changes of heart by recruits and general transfers make the situation very fluid.
As for the coaching staff, Miller’s associate head coach at Bowling Green, Jennifer Roos, was tapped to replace him there earlier this week. The Toledo Blade reported that she is expected to keep the director of basketball operations on the BG staff, while assistant coaches Brandi Poole and Kevin Eckert are expected to join Miller at Indiana.
