Hoosiers to host Northwestern in 3rd round of WNIT

Indiana’s postseason homestand will continue.

The Hoosiers will host Northwestern in the third round of WNIT on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Assembly Hall. It’s an opportunity for redemption for Indiana, which dropped a 58-52 decision to the Wildcats in Bloomington in late January. That game saw a woeful shooting effort from the field and the free throw line. The Hoosiers shot only 6-for-20 at the line and were only 21-for-70 from the floor.

Indiana coach Curt Miller said that game sent his group to “rock bottom.”

“In all of my 24 years of coaching, I’m not sure I’ve seen a more down team,” Miller said in the days after that defeat.

Northwestern drubbed IUPUI, 88-52, on Sunday afternoon to earn a trip to the third round.

Tickets for Thursday’s game will again be $6 for adults and $4 for youth/students and will go on sale on Monday at 9 a.m.

  1. It’s time for Hoosier nation to turn out in force Thursday night and help this young team to victory. It’s great that we get another oppritunity to play Northwestern again this year. We had a real chance to beat them earlier this year except for a terrible shooting night. This team has a real chance to gain revenge on the earlier defeat with some great crowd support. These ladies deserve your support! As a long time women’s season ticket holder, I can certainly say this has been the most enjoyable season I have ever experienced in Bloomington. Go Hoosiers!

  2. This is a highly winnable game. We know this team and we should be, shall we say, “highly incentivized” to thump them. And it’s great we get them in the Hall. Should be a great crowd.

  3. It’s payback time ladies. Remember how you felt following the earlier loss and use it to play an awesome game. Go Hoosiers.

  4. Wish the Lady Hoosiers all the luck in the world in the Women’s NIT.

    The tournament has changed recently.
    From the WNIT website: “2014 Postseason WNIT
    The 64-team tournament is a single-elimination event with all games played at sites of host schools.”

    No more guaranteed New York City, apparently.
