IU women’s bb exhibition

FINAL: HOOSIERS 93, SCREAMING EAGLES 49

Nothing left to do but note Lydia Serfling’s entry into the scorebook with a baseline jumper and the score.

3:20, SECOND HALF

I’d like to dedicate this next to last update to the No. 1 IU women’s basketball fan, Phil. Indiana wrapping up a dominating performance here at Assembly Hall, nearly matching the football team’s defensive effort today. North grad Lydia Serfling into the game for the first time. HOOSIERS 82, SCREAMING EAGLES 45

7:47, SECOND HALF

Everybody put your hands in the air, and wave them like you just made a 3-pointer, That’s what Indiana is doing, now 11-of-16 from beyond the arc. Whitney Lindsay, Ashlee Mells and Jamie Braun the latest to hit for IU. HOOSIERS 75, SCREAMING EAGLES 31

11:34, SECOND HALF

IU pretty much having its way. Freshmen Danilsa Andujar and Ashlee Mells starting to get some extended playing time now. HOOSIERS 59, SCREAMING EAGLES 29

18:06, SECOND HALF

IU picks up where it left off, forcing turnovers on the first four Southern Indiana possessions of the second half. HOOSIERS 50, SCREAMING EAGLES 22

HALFTIME

Indiana closes the half on an 11-0 run, holding Southern Indiana scoreless over the final 5:13. Haylie Linn is IU’s leading scorer with 11, followed by Kim Roberson with 7 (in just 11 foul-shortened minutes) and Jori Davis with 6. HOOSIERS 44, SCREAMING EAGLES 22

7:54, FIRST HALF

Indiana now 7-of-7 on 3-pointers, but Southern Indiana has hit a couple in a row as well. Haylie Linn finally found the shot she could miss, an uncontested 15-footer. HOOSIERS 28, SCREAMING EAGLES 17

10:30, FIRST HALF

Indiana is 5-of-5 on 3-pointers, but Coach Felisha Legette-Jack would like to see some stronger post play. She gave Amber Jackson an earful a moment ago after a fadeaway in the lane over a smaller defender. HOOSIERS 21, SCREAMING EAGLES 9

13:32, FIRST HALF

Hoosiers aren’t getting much in the post so far, but Haylie Linn is making that a moot point with three 3-pointers. Indiana is also employing a halfcourt zone trap, but is getting hurt on the offensive glass by USI. HOOSIERS 16, SCREAMING EAGLES 7

15:55, FIRST HALF

Live at Assembly Hall for the first basketball game between two different teams. Hoosiers won the opening tip against Southern Indiana and Kim Roberson promptly drilled a 3 to get things started right. It appears that at least a few football fans are seeking catharsis here after a disappointing result at Memorial Stadium. HOOSIERS 9, SCREAMING EAGLES 5

  1. why is this in the sports section? if their was any interest they would of showed up to the game for free

  2. Phil,

    We here at The Herald-Times do not provide you only with things you’ve demonstrated a liking for but also events that might otherwise slip past you.

    In what will be the toughest season of men’s basketball in school history — at least record wise — it seems like some people may also choose to watch what should be an entertaining women’s team.

  3. Hi Chris

    I agree with you and shame on Phil.

    Like you said the Women’s team is very good this year. I predict they will finish 4 or 5th in the Big Ten and make the NCAA tournament. I was at part of the game today and would have stayed for the whole thing if I didn’t have to be at the Women’s Volleyball Game at 7pm (As you know I cover them for the IDS).

    By the way the Volleyball team just won again last night and is suddenly in the discussion for the NCAA Tournament.

    Talk to you later and I am sure I will see you at some of the games this year Chris.

  4. I took my wife and little ones to 5 womens gsmes last year. I have gone to a few every season for the past 10 years or so. The team last year was so much fun to watch and they were a TEAM! They returned all but one player I think. I can assure you this team will make some noise this year and will be fun to watch. Really well coached too. Thank GOD for the Big 10 network.
