IUWBB: PSU at Indiana

FINAL: Indiana 76, PSU 55. Hoosiers finish 14-0 at home. In position to grab double bye in B1G tourney if Minnesota loses tomorrow.

6:42 (4Q). 70-40, IU. Jenn Anderson joins three other teammates in double figures, with 11. Kym Royster threatening, with 8.

END OF THIRD: Indiana 62, PSU 37.

Not a terrible quarter for PSU, but still a huge mountain to climb for the Lady Lions. Looking like an IU victory. No PSU player is in double figures, and the Hoosiers have Cahill, Buss (12) and Gassion (13).

4:55 (3Q): Amanda Cahill at 14 points and 12 rebounds. She has yet another double double. Hoosiers lead, 55-27.

HALFTIME: Indiana 44, PSU 19.

(in a related note, MSU beat OSU in triple overtime, which means the Hoosiers will need Minnesota to lose to Maryland tomorrow for Hoosiers to secure No. 4 seed and a double bye in the Big Ten tournament next week)

Hoosiers hitting 47 percent of their shots, to the Lady Lions’ 29 percent.¬†Amanda Cahill with 10 points and eight rebounds at half. Tyra Buss and Alexis Gassion each with nine. Jenn Anderson with 7. Candace Agee and Lindsey Spann, with two field goals each, are the only PSU players with more than one make.

14.0 (2Q): The details are almost inconsequential at this point. Just a rout, in every sense. Lead up to 44-19, IU.

3:51 (2Q): IU is just rolling. The lead stands at 36-15 now. Tyra Buss with nine points. Amanda Cahill with eight. IU is shooting 50 percent from the field. PSU at 30 percent.

END OF FIRST: Indiana 21, Penn State 9.

Jenn Anderson, Tyra Buss, Amanda Cahill all with 5 points. Crisp passing, plenty of deflections on the defensive end (5 PSU turnovers) and PSU is shooting 3-of-11 from the floor.

7:49 (1Q): A quick start for IU. Alexis Gassion with a pull-up jumper. Then Amanda Cahill puts back her own miss. Cahill, two possessions later, found Lyndsay Leikem under the basket for a score. It’s 6-0, IU.

The Hoosiers will look to finish an unbeaten regular season at home versus Penn State, in a game that is important for conference seeding.

If IU beats PSU, a Michigan State loss would ensure that the Hoosiers are the No. 3 seed in the Big Ten tournament. If MSU wins, IU will need to win and have Minnesota lost to finish fourth. If all three teams win, then IU is the fifth seed. And if the Hoosiers lose, they are the fifth seed, which means no double bye to the quarterfinals.
