IU women win at Boston College

The Indiana women’s basketball team bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 76-67 win at Boston College in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge Wednesday night.

“I think it says a lot about this team and their toughness, their will to win, their character, just to come on the road for the first time, play a really good ACC opponent,” IU coach Teri Moren said.

The Hoosiers (6-1) got a career-high 24 points from freshman Tyra Buss and held an 18-point lead with under 12 minutes remaining before holding off a late Eagle charge. It was IU’s first road victory in the ACC/Big Ten challenge since topping Clemson on Dec. 2, 2010, and third straight Challenge win overall.

Sophomore Larryn Brooks added 21 points, while freshman Amanda Cahill pulled down 10 rebounds, her fifth game with double-digits on the glass this season.

  1. I watched the game on the Boston College website. IU lead the entire first half and had a lead of 23 points at one time in the second half. They held on down the stretch to win the game. IU shot the ball at a tremendous % in the first half! at one time late in the first half they were around 60%. Buss & Brooks were to much for BC to handle with 45 points combined. This was an impressive win for IU’s first road game although BC didn’t have a very big crowd to try to intimidate us. This was certainly not anything like we will see on the road in the conference!

    All in all it was a very satisfying win after a very tough overtime loss in our last home game. This young team showed some real grit and determination which they can build off of for the future. Very good to see Cahill continue her double digit rebounding against a couple of athletic post players. Go Hoosiers!

  2. Continued positive momentum for coach T. Moren and lady Hoosiers. T. Moren is really good in her interviews explaining positives, negatives, and direction she is leading team toward. Good Win.

  3. Like what I’m seeing from Coach Moren and her crew. Maybe in the not too distant future she should consider how she will go about being both the womens and mens HC.
