IUWBB: UIndy at IU exhibition

FINAL: Indiana 87, UIndy 58.

END OF THIRD: Indiana 71, UIndy 42. Bre Wickware blocked Sydney Brackemyre’s heave from halfcourt to end the third quarter. 

5:27 (3Q): It’s 56-32, IU. Some sloppiness for the Hoosiers, who turned the ball over on three consecutive possessions. For total in the third quarter thus far.

HALFTIME: Indiana 53, UIndy 28. Royster leads IU with 16 points at halftime. Tyra Buss with 13. 

3:22 (2Q): IU has cooled off, but Karlee McBride making an impact off the bench. She hits two straight 3s, and gives IU a 42-28 lead. 

7:28 (1Q): IU was off and running from the start. The opening tip fell into Amanda Cahill’s hands, who threw it to Tyra Buss, who lobbed it up for Alexis Gassion. She hit one of two free throws. Then we saw Kym Royster run the floor for a transition layup. Amanda Cahill hit a 3, and then there was another transition bucket for Royster.

A few changes in the starting lineup from what we saw last year. Kym Royster will start at the five, while grad transfer Amber Deane will start at the three. That means Karlee McBride and Jenn Anderson, two starters from last year, will come off the bench.

It’s just an exhibition, but we will get our first look at the 2016-17 Hoosiers today. They will face UIndy in an exhibition at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Check here for updates every now and again, or follow on Twitter, @jon_blau.
