Indiana will host Saint Louis at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall in the WNIT’s second round. Saint Louis is assistant Glenn Box’s former program. Should be an interesting game, as a victory would give IU a new program record in wins (22). Check back here for updates, or follow along on Twitter, @Jon_Blau.
