IUWBB: Hoosiers defeat IUPUI, 68-55

The Hoosiers may have allowed IUPUI to pull down 18 offensive rebounds, but they pulled away from the Jaguars in a 68-55 win.

Four Hoosiers scored in double figures, led by Amanda Cahill’s 14. With nine rebounds, Cahill was one short of a double-double. Larryn Brooks added 12 points, followed by Tyra Buss with 12 and Jenn Anderson with 10.

IUPUI was down only one point, 28-27, with 4:22 remaining in the first half. IU then went on an 13-0 run to end the half, including a 3-pointer by Jess Walter and a layup by Amanda Cahill in the last minute and a half to make the halftime score 41-27.

The Hoosiers would expand their lead to 22 points with 3:55 remaining in the game, but the Jaguars scored the last seven points in the contest.


  1. A nice win for our girls today while shooting 48% from the field. One problem that exists for us is allowing way to many offensive rebounds by our opponents. While Amanda Cahill continues to be as steady as running water, she needs help on the boards. She was one rebound shy of another double-double today. We are at the point where we almost take her for granted which is quite unique for a freshman! Her consistent play is quite remarkable to say the least.

    Our strong guard play is this team’s strength! With the addition of Buss this year our guard play has improved over last year when we were relying on Agler and Brooks every game even though they were freshmen. Although Agler is not scoring as many points as she did last year, her very steady ball handling and playmaking ability along with very good defensive play make her invaluable to this team. Jess Walter had her best game of the year and gave the team a tremendous boost off the bench in the first half when we were struggling a bit. Her all around play rebounding and dishing out assists were instrumental in our halftime lead. Four girls in double figures again which is getting to be a staple for this year’s team. All in all it was a good day for this young team.

  2. Great game! Early on it looked evenly matched, but the IU gals rallied and really tightened up especially on defense. Still need serious rebounding off the lay up. Tyra’s 33% from the field is more indicative of a lack of crashing the boards than it is of her poor shooting. She’s supposed to penetrate the lane but our bigs need to follow up. All and all an awesome performance. Looking forward to BIG TEN (or twelve, or whatever it is now) play!
