IU women vs. Milwaukee

FINAL: Indiana 87, Milwaukee 68. Hoosiers are 10-0 for the first time since 1994-95. Their 87 points ties season the high. Indiana’s Larryn Brooks led all scorers with 27 points, Sasha Chaplin added 16 points and Tabitha Gerardot finished with 13.

Under-4: Indiana 78, Milwaukee 60. Brooks leads #IUwbb with 27 points. Sasha Chaplin up to 16 for the Hoosiers.

Under-8: Indiana 69, Milwaukee 57. Taylor Agler with another steal before the break, tying her career high with 4.

Under-12. Indiana 64, Milwaukee 49. Brooks up to 24 points. She could very well get close to her freshman-record 37.

Under-16: Indiana running away right now, up 61-40. That’s IU’s largest lead of the night. Larryn Brooks up to 21 points. She’s 5-for-6 from 3.

HALFTIME: Indiana 48, Milwaukee 35. Larryn Brooks leads all scorers with 16 points. Both teams shooting right around 50 percent. Agler, Gassion and Chaplin each have six points for IU. It’s the sixth time in 10 games that Indiana has at least 40 points at halftime.

Under-4: Indiana 42, Milwaukee 28. Hoosiers on an 8-2 run. Lika Taufa playing well off the bench. Really overpowering Milwaukee underneath.

Under-8: Indiana 34, Milwaukee 26. This is really a track meet now. Not sure if IU has seen a pace like this all season. Brooks still leads IU with 11 points, but she’s been on the bench the last 2 minutes for a breather.

Larryn Brooks has hit her last three shots — all 3-pointers. One of them saw her fall into the first row of seats in the corner. She’s good. Brooks leads Indiana with 9 points. Gassion has 7. Indiana up on Milwaukee, 25-13, with 12:10 to play in the first half.

Under-16: Indiana 13, Milwaukee 9. Alexis Gassion is hot for the Hoosiers. She’s 3-for-3 from the floor with 7 points. Curt Miller warned this game would be quick and he wasn’t lying. It’s a very uptempo game so far. Larryn Brooks is guarding Milwaukee top scorer Angela Rodriguez.

PREGAME: Tonight is the final home game of the non-conference season, as Indiana is set to host Milwaukee at Assembly Hall at 7 p.m. The Hoosiers enter play as one of 18 teams in the nation with an unblemished record. They’ll be looking to win their 10th straight game to start the season — a feat the IU women’s program hasn’t seen since the 1994-95 season. That was the third of three three consecutive seasons in which Indiana opened with 10 straight wins. The record is 11 consecutive wins to start the season, set by the 1992-93 team.

Milwaukee is on the heels of an 87-64 loss at Bowling Green, where they saw the same offensive sets employed by IU coach Curt Miller. It’s a similar situation to the Butler game three weeks ago. The Bulldogs were also coming off a loss against BG when they came to Assembly Hall. It’s an interesting scenario and one that doesn’t necessarily favor either side. While Milwaukee has the benefit of working through the ball screen offense for 40 minutes, IU has those same 40 minutes on film to see how they fared. So, it’s basically a push.

I’ll post lineups once they’re available, along with updates at each media timeout. You can catch me on Twitter, too, at @BowieMike.
