IU women’s basketball beats Wisconsin, 69-52

Indiana recovered from two straight lopsided losses by defeating Wisconsin Sunday, 69-52.

Four players finished with 11 points, including Jess Walter, Amanda Cahill, Tyra Buss and Larryn Brooks. While the Hoosiers did not shoot the ball particularly well, hitting on 38.1 percent of their shots, they did produce 18 points from the free throw line on 20 trips and converted 23 points off of turnovers.

IU led most of the game, establishing a 43-30 halftime advantage. The Hoosiers only turned the ball over two times in the half.

In the second half, the Hoosiers padded their lead, partly thanks to Brooks, who has been fighting flu-like symptoms since the Ohio State game. She didn’t start, but she played 26 minutes, deep into the fourth quarter. With a little more than 3 minutes left in the game, she hit a jumper with the shot clock running down; that shot was followed by an Amanda Cahill 3-pointer to give 67-48 late in the game.

  1. What happened to Kaila Hulls? She’s not dressed with the team during the last few games and she’s no longer listed as part of this year’s team roster on the official Indiana Athletics’s website. Does anyone know the story?

  2. TallGuy, I thought I told you that Coach Moren announced at the start for the sason that Nicole Bell and Kaila’s careers are now over due to injuries. Nicole was having apparently concussion issues and Kaila was still having recurring knee problems.

  3. Hey Mike, I remembered she and Nicole were hurt and wouldn’t be playing this season. Since Nicole was still dressing and listed on the roster I guess I was expecting to read something to about Kaila.

  4. Kaila hulls quit after Christmas because moren is a awful person and coach. That’s why they said nothing and quietly removed her from the roster and the website. She was going to stay on the team but cant handle the drama with the coaches. Still think it was disrespectful to not say a word about hulls leaving. Pretty big iu fam

  5. MikeC doesn’t know a whole lot from where he sits in the stands. This is locker room talk. Program is falling apart.
