    The Gophers outscored the Wildcats 26-8 in the paint and outrebounded them 49-30. Northwestern, led by senior A.J. Glasauer’s 13 points, only shot 24.1 percent for the game.

  2. First Half update from Indiana vs. Iowa (34-21 Hoosiers)

    Kim Roberson came off the bench and got 12 points in 12 minutes, including two 3-pointers.

    Freshman point guard Shanice Billington also provided some quality reserve minutes with 5 points and 3 assists in 14 minutes.
    Billington extended IU’s halftime lead to 13 with a 3-point play with just 4.5 seconds left on the clock, getting a loud cheer from the Hoosier fan section and a quick fist pump from head coach Felisha Legette-Jack.

    Speedy Iowa point guard Kristi Smith has 7 points but failed to get off a last second shot beacuse of an Indiana double team just over the halfcourt line.

    Iowa is 0 for 6 from 3-point land (they finished the season with the second best team percentage in the nation)

  3. Hoosiers win!!! 67-53

    Kim Roberson’s 21 points off the bench leads the way (2 assists and 2 steals also)

    Iowa’s Wendy Ausdemore, averaging 13.1 ppg and 15.2 in conference games, held scoreless for the game on 0 for 9 shooting

    Indiana never trailed and the game was never tied after 0-0

    The Hawkeyes scored 103 points in their final regular season game against Wisconsin, so tonight’s dropoff was over 48 percent in offensive oputput from four days ago

    Indiana meets Ohio State tomorrow at 6 p.m. in the first game of the second session (4 total quarterfinal games on Friday)
