Clemson at IU women


FINAL: Indiana 52, Clemson 49. This one was ugly. Really ugly. IU shoots only 17 of 55 from the field, but somehow manages to pull this one out.

Grant with a 3 for Clemson to make it a 50-48 game, but Rubene answers on the other end to build the IU lead back to 4 with 5 secs to play.

Jonquel Jones called for a travel underneath and Clemson turns it over with 1:16 to play. IU up 48-45.

3:59: IU with a 44-42 lead on a layup by Deloach. It’s the Hoosiers’ first lead of the second half.

5:44: Indiana ties it at 42-42 with a layup from McCurty. It followed a 3 from Bell — her first — and suddenly the Hoosiers have momentum.

7:05: Indiana needs to get something going offensively. Missing too many open looks underneath to stay within striking distance. Clemson’s up 42-37 as the flags hit the court.

McCurty 1 block away from tying career high of 6. Clemson still up, 42-35, with 8:32 to play.

11:28: Clemson up 42-34 and looking to pull away. IU is getting some looks on the offensive end, but isn’t converting. As you might expect, the Tigers aren’t letting Sinclair get anything in space.

15:04: Chaplin hits with two free-throws to give IU its first points since the opening possession. Clemson up 35-31

15:48: Hoosiers have missed on 4 of first 5 possessions to start the half. McCurty really having a nice game defensively for IU. 3 blocks and a steal, good positioning. Offensively, not so much.

17:58: The sloppiness? Nope. Haven’t fixed that just yet. Clemson up 33-29.

HALFTIME: CLEMSON 29, INDIANA 27. Sinclair is on pace to break her career high in points. She has 18 in 20 minutes. Her career best is 27. Clemson led by as many as 10 points with 5:10 to play in the half before IU stormed back on an 11-3 run. Sinclair had nine of those points. The big thing for IU in the second half is getting Sinclair some help. Hoosiers were able to get things going a little better offensively over that late-half run, but have struggled with sloppiness all night. Newbauer has been benched twice after questionable decisions and McGhee has been a non-factor. The good news is that, for all of IU’s woes, Clemson has been just as sloppy. As sloppy as advertised, really. Tigers aren’t turning the ball over, but aren’t doing much with the ball either. Clemson shooting only 28 percent through the first half, with IU playing some mostly-solid defense on the other end, so there’s that. But Hoosiers really need to get some more people involved if they’re going to protect homecourt.

1:37: Sinclair, almost single-handedly, brought IU back into this one. She has 18 of IUs 26 points, as her 2 FTs tie the game at 26-26.

2:55: Sinclair trying to will IU back into this one. Hoosiers trail 26-21. Miller is, obviously, frustrated by the 10 turnovers.

6:53: All the shots falling for Clemson now. Tigers up 19-12.

8:53: Clemson has a 13-12 lead. Quaneisha McCurty is playing well off the bench for IU. 3 blocks so far. Nice spark by Q.

11:09: Quaneisha McCurty swats away a Clemson shot in the lane and Aulani Sinclair drives the other way and is fouled going up for a shot. She’ll shoot two after the timeout.

12:49: Both teams really struggling to hit the open looks early. IU shooting only 3 of 11 from the field so far. Clemson up 8-7.

14:01: Newbauer having a tough start to this one. 2 turnovers leads to a seat on the bench. Bell in for IU.

15:59: We have a 4-4 tie with 15:59 to play in the 1st half. #IUwbb with 3 turnovers early.

PREGAME: The Hoosiers look to keep rolling against winless Clemson in tonight’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge at Assembly Hall. The Tigers are 0-5, but have lost four games by six points or less. Clemson also averages 5.6 blocks per game as a team, with Jonquel Jones pulling down 9 boards per game.

After Monday’s win over IPFW, Hoosiers coach Curt Miller discusses the importance of Indiana playing big against a stronger Tigers team. We’re about to find out if they can. Tip is in less than 10 minutes.

    The IU women seemed to lack focus in the first half of both halves, but they found the grit and determination to win. Held the opponent under 50 again. Have already equaled last year’s win total. Curt Miller says this season isn’t about wins, but about changing the culture. You can see the change gradually happening, and the wins certainly don’t hurt.

    It’s apparent that Coach Jack lost control of this team. Never cared to recruit the State of Indiana. In good hands now.
