Headed to the Hall


INDIANA (17-13, 10-8) sends PENN STATE (13-17, 4-14) to 11th straight loss, 79-67

Final Stats:
Penn State
Kamela Gissendanner, 24 points, 11 rebounds
Tyra Grant, 13 points
Janessa Wolff, 12 points

Indiana
Nikki Smith, 17 points, 3 assists
Kim Roberson, 17 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks
Jamie Braun, 15 points, 4 assists

After checking some earlier scores today, the Hoosiers CANNOT get the first-round bye in the Big Ten Tournament, even with a win today. Michigan State is already 10-8 with no game today, and the Spartans own the tiebreaker over Indiana for fifth place in the standings if IU wins today. Michigan State has a better record against Ohio State and Iowa, the league Co-Champions after wins today.

Here we go with two games already over in the Big Ten today. Ohio State won at home and Iowa won on the road to finish tied for first place in the Big Ten’s regular season. It was a disappointing men’s game shown on the scoreboard at Assembly Hall, but the crowd is out in mass for this final regular season game for the Hoosiers and for senior Nikki Smith.

Second Half:

Indiana 44, PSU 35: Timeout with 15:55 to play. IU got a sweet bucket from Amber Jackson when Jorid Davis threaded a pass between two defenders in the lane as the shot clock wound down. But the Lions answered with a long pass from Big Ten assists leader Brianne O’Rourke to a wide open Rashida Mark on the other end.

Indiana 56, PSU 45: Timeout with 10:56 to go in the game. The Hoosiers are rolling right now and should not have a problem finishing off the Lady Lions.

Indiana 63, PSU 48: Kim Roberson has 15 points, leading three Hoosiers in double figures. Kamela Gissendanner has 18 for Penn State to lead all players. Timeout with 7:41 left on the clock.

Indiana 68, PSU 49: Roberson’s up to 17 points now, but it’s a Jamie Braun wraparound pass to Jori Davis right underneath the bucket that results in a layup and a loud timeout as the crowd gets to its feet for a rousing ovation.

Indiana 73, PSU 54: Nikki Smith for 3!!!, and Bran follows up with a nifty little runner that drops through after a roll around the rim. Smith has matched Roberson’s 17 points.

Indiana 75, PSU 62: Smith checks out with about a minute to go, to a decent ovation and hugs from Caoch Jack and the rest of the Indiana bench.

FINAL: Indiana 79, PSU 67: The Hoosiers win it, but not before Ebony Jackson lets loose a signature rainbow 3!!! that swishes through the net.

——————-
First Half:

Indiana 9, PSU 0: A Nikki Smith 3 got things started, a Whitney Thomas bucket got the Lady Lions to call timeout, and the Hoosiers have the early lead with 16 minutes to go in the first.

Indiana 14, PSU 2: Kamela Gissendanner gets Penn State on the board, but Smith hits another 3 and makes a fastbreak layup to build the Hoosiers’ lead. Smith has eight points so far in her final regular season game.

Indiana 18, PSU 12: Timeout with 11:27 to play in the first. Tyra Grant makes a power layup for the Lions, but then is called for charging the next time down the floor.

Indiana 27, PSU 19: Timeout with 7:44 to go. Gissendanner banks in a short range jumper after Hoosier guard Jori Davis is stripped of the ball after a rebound.

Indiana 32, PSU 19: Smith nails another 3!!! and Jamie Braun follows up with a layup in transition. Smith has 11 points already, averaging just 7.0 per game on the year. 6:15 to go.

Indiana 35, PSU 23: Smith buries another 3!!!. The lone senior has 14 points.

HALFTIME: Indiana 42, PSU 33: With 0.7 second left on the clock, Gissendanner hits a running layup from the right baseline and draws the foul. She sinks the free throw, and the Hoosiers don’t have time for a shot.

Halftime Stats:
Penn State
Kamela Gissendannner, 11 points
Tyra Grant, 10 points
Brianne O’Rourke, 5 assists

    While they didn’t break the record they were hoping for, 8136 headed to the hall this afternoon. There was lots of families, students, old IU faithful,and of course the IU Band and cheerleaders made it a fun time for all. Sheila Stephen sand the National Anthem and emceed some half time festivities which featured a IU Credit Union-sponsored cash grab at center court, and let’s not forget lots of t-shirts getting flung into the crowd, Buchetto’s pizzas being handed out, and the band played on.

    The lady Hoosiers played hard and dominated the game for start to finish. Senior Nikki Smith started the afternoon hitting the 1st shot…a 3 pointer and she did a great job being the game’s high scorer. Being the only senior, she gave a sweet send off speech filled with thank yous, well wishes and the expected tears. Coach Felicia Leggete Jack ended the evening at the mic thanking the great crowd and promising more wins if we continue to show up and support the team like we did today.

    Great job Lady Hoosiers and best wishes for a successful post season!
