IU women’s basketball exhibition

Indiana finishes off the victory with some playing time for everybody, though it was largely a lackluster second half for the Hoosiers. IU led in scoring by Aulani Sinclair with 15, Quaneisha McCurty with 13 and Sasha Chaplin 11. Hoosiers shoot just 36.5 percent from the field, but Kentucky State was at 21.4 percent. HOOSIERS 77, THOROUGHBRETTES 34

Watch this game for just a few minutes, and there’s little doubt what the outcome is going to be. But that’s not what matters in this first outing for the Hoosiers. It’s about where to be and what to do offensively, defensively and even during time outs. Every break in play is a teaching moment for Curt Miller and staff.

As for the actual game, Aulani Sinclair leads the way with 10 points, Quaneisha McCurty with 8 points and Nicole Bell has 7 points. Simone Deloach has 7 rebounds off the bench. Bell has done a nice job as floor general with veteran Andrea Newbauer still sidelined by injury. Walk-ons Brionna Arnold (4 points) and Carmela Roeschlein provided some key minutes as well in the opening half. Indiana is shooting 13-fo-34 from the field, but Kentucky State is just 2-of-24 from the floor, which is about all you need to know about that. HOOSIERS 41, THOROUGHBRETTES 9

10:06: Midway through the first half, and Indiana is in control as expected. IU with balanced scoring, led by 5 points apiece for Bell and Sinclair. Walk-on Brionna Arnold of Ben Davis has added a 3. Kentucky State has six turnovers, four in the first five possessions. HOOSIERS 19, THOROUGHBRETTES 5

The curtain rises on the Curt Miller era in Bloomington as Indiana hosts Division II Kentucky State in an exhibition game at Assembly Hall. Indiana starters are freshman Nicole Bell at point guard, senior wings Jasmine McGhee and Aulani Sinclair, with sophomore forward Quaneisha McCurty and redshirt junior center Sasha Chaplin.

    i quickly scrowled down your page and seeing nothing of note i switched to a different iubb source. then it hit me. i could have sworn i saw the word “Thoroughbrettes”. i had to immediately hit the back button to make sure my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me. the “thoroughbrettes”?! Really? if chick hoops ever wants to be taken seriously, they can start with not “feminizing” the mascot name. and stop playing like chicks.

    and while i’m at it, what’s with all these colleges changing their uniforms all the time. if your uniform changes every week it really isn’t a uniform. it’s a costume. i’m talking to you, oregon.
