4:31 (4Q): SMU has made four 3s in the fourth quarter. Four. Mustangs were 0-of-6 heading into the quarter. This is nuts. But the Hoosiers lead 55-41.
END OF THIRD: Indiana 43, SMU 27. Mustangs are just inept offensively. Hard to imagine they outscore IU by 16 in the fourth.
4:53 (3Q); We are in the midst of a 10-2 run for IU in this quarter. SMU just can’t hit a shot, and the Hoosiers benefited from Karlee McBride, Amanda Cahill 3s.
7:34 (3Q): IU was not looking good to start the half, but a rebound after a Amanda Cahill missed 3 and Karlee McBride hits one of her own. It’s 30-19, IU.
HALFTIME: Indiana 27, SMU 17. Actually a kind of even second quarter. Hoosiers only outscore Mustangs by two.
Even scoring for the Hoosiers. Tyra Buss and Alexis Gassion with six apiece. Ria Gulley with five. Karlee McBride/Kym Royster with four.
Kiara Perry has eight of SMU’s 17 points. Take away Kiara Perry (4-of-9 from field) and SMU is 3-of-23 from the field. Figure the Hoosiers are OK with that.
3:39 (2Q): SMU is 3-of-26 from the field. Tyra Buss hit her second 3 of the night to push the IU lead to 24-9.
END OF FIRST: Indiana 12, SMU 4. The Mustangs were 1-of-15 from the floor in that quarter.
4:29 (1): Indiana has an early 5-4 lead, but the Hoosiers are without Jenn Anderson, who picked up a second foul with 6:15 left in the first quarter.
Indiana hosts its third WNIT in a row against Southern Methodist (19-14) in the Round of 16. Hoosiers (22-10) have held their opponents below 60 points in both games, and that will be imperative tonight versus a team that allow opponents only 58.3 points per outing.
