IU women vs. Wisconsin

FINAL: Indiana 76, Wisconsin 69. Larryn Brooks led the Hoosiers with 22 points and Simone Deloach posted a double-double of 14 points and 14 rebounds on her birthday. Alexis Gassion added 14 points.

Simone Deloach fouls out with 2:24 to go. She finishes by tying her career high of 14 points and tying her season high of 14 rebounds, including six on the offensive glass.

Under-8: Indiana 64, Wisconsin 52. Alexis Gassion up to 12 points for the Hoosiers. Wisconsin cut its deficit to seven points moments ago. The Badgers switched to a press that caused Indiana trouble (and three turnovers). The defensive pressure helped spark Wisconsin to a 9-0 run.

12-min timeout: Indiana 53, Wisconsin 42. Badgers with 5 straight points — Hoosiers have pair of turnovers vs. Wisconsin press in that span.

Under-16: Indiana 44, Wisconsin 30. Badgers come out of the half shooting 1-of-9 from the field. IU has buckets from Gerardot and Brooks, who’s up to 14 points.

HALFTIME: Indiana 40, Wisconsin 28. Larryn Brooks leads Hoosiers with 12 points. IU has 24 points in the paint, 10 2nd-chance points.

Under-4: Indiana 33, Wisconsin 22. Hoosiers continue to attack the Badgers under the basket. 20 points in the paint, 4 3-pointers.

Under-8: Indiana 23, Wisconsin 17. 16 of the Hoosiers’ points have come in the paint. IU really attacking the basket today.

Under-12: Wisconsin 15, Indiana 11. Hoosiers with back-to-back baskets to get within four. Brooks has 7 of IU’s points.

Under-16: Wisconsin 10, Indiana 7. Larryn Brooks, perfect from the field, has 5 points for the Hoosiers. Curt Miller called timeout moments ago after Jacki Gulczynski sank a wide open 3 in the corner. She hurt IU last month with four 3s (Wisconsin had seven as a team). This week in practice, Miller emphasized shutting down perimeter shots — especially those from Gulczynski. Wisconsin is already 2-for-3 from beyond the arc.

PREGAME: The Hoosiers, fresh off a bounce-back win at Illinois on Sunday, return to Assembly Hall for a rematch with Wisconsin. The Badgers knocked off Indiana, 65-60, last month in a game that IU felt it allowed to slip away in the final minutes. Today the Hoosiers have a chance to finish what they started last month in Madison.

Wisconsin lineup: F Jacki Gulczynski, C Michala Johnson, G Morgan Paige, G Nicole Bauman, G Taylor Wurtz.
Indiana lineup: F Tabitha Gerardot, F Simone Deloach, G Alexis Gassion, G Taylor Agler, G Larryn Brooks.

  1. Very solid win for the women. Very nice crowd of over 3,500. IU’s defense was very good for the most part, Gulczyski, who got us for 25 in Wiscosin was held to 6 points by the IU defense today which was huge! Brooks & Deloach were great and Gassion continued her strong play. A very strong team victory! IU now plays a very strong Penn St. team Wednesdy night in Asembly Hall. I would hope we get a large crowd Wednesday night for this big game. We were pretty competitive at Penn St. a couple of weeks ago. A win Wednesday night would be quite a feather in the young Hoosiers cap. Go Hoosiers!!!

  2. That’s what I get for listening to Big Red radio and Jeremy Gray’s post game on the way home. He said we play Wednesday?? My bad for believing inacurate information.
