SECOND HALF
7:08: Turns out Tyra Buss is human — she just missed her fifth free throw of the night on the front end of a 1-and-1 but still has 9 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in the game. HOOSIERS 84, EAGLES 47

11:31: Brooks the latest Hoosier to join the 13-point club, while Amanda Cahill grabbed her career-high 12th rebound just before picking up her fourth foul. HOOSIERS 73, EAGLES 42

15:41: Five quick points out of the break give Larryn Brooks 10 for the game to go with six assists, as Indiana is in command now. HOOSIERS 62, EAGLES 37

HALFTIME
Indiana didn’t play its best, struggled shooting the ball at times, had foul trouble in the frontcourt and was unable to get as many easy points off turnovers, but a late surge put the Hoosiers up a big margin. They finished shooting 54 percent overall and 40 percent from 3. Jenn Anderson had a career-high 13 points in the opening half, while Karlee McBride also had 13 points. HOOSIERS 55, EAGLES 31

FIRST HALF
7:45: It’s not been a terribly sharp performance for Indiana thus far, but Jenn Anderson has been effective on the inside with 12 points so far to overcome 2-of-8 shooting from 3. HOOSIERS 30, EAGLES 20

10:39: Morehead State found some offense after the cold start, scoring on six of eight possessions to close within five at one point. HOOSIERS 23, EAGLES 16

15:40: Cold-shooting start from the outside for Indiana, but center Jenn Anderson scored the first six points, followed by five from forward Amanda Cahill, to push the lead to nine. Morehead 1-of-9 FGs to start. HOOSIERS 11, EAGLES 2

  1. This team is so much fun to watch, 6 players in double figures again, that is the second time this year. They score points in bunches. It was finally nice to see Tyra Buss hit some 3’s in this game. She had 3 of them, her 3 point shooting was one of her strengths in high school and something she has struggled with earlier this year but, last night she finally picked up that aspect of her game. Her being able to hit 3’s will only make her more dangerous since she is so strong taking the ball to the basket.

    I didn’t think the team played that well last night but, they still put up 98 points which gives you some idea of how good this team is offensively. They were very unselfish last night with 23 assists which was very impressive! Amanda Cahill had a double-double last night and Alexis Gassion had a very nice offensive game after a slow start this year. Carly McBride continues to come off the bench and score in double figures, she has done this in all 3 games this year. This is just another indication in how deep this team is when 2 players come off the bench and score in double figures. Come on Hoosier Nation, it’s time to come out and watch this exciting young team compete! Go Hoosiers!!

  2. if I lived within 200 miles of a game I’d go check them out… Oh, wait… they’ll be at BC on the 3rd! Guess I’m committed to going now.
