IPFW at IU women

Comments Off by   |   Monday, November 26, 2012 - 7:40 pm EDT

FINAL
It wasn’t Indiana’s best game at either end of the floor, but ultimately the Hoosiers were good enough to pick up their fifth straight victory and hold a fourth straight foe under 50 points. IU placed three players in double figures, led by Aulani Sinclair’s 18 points. Nicole Bell added 13 and Jasmine McGhee 12. HOOSIERS 64, MASTODONS 47

SECOND HALF
3:52: IPFW got within nine at 45-36, but a Linda Rubene three-point play and Aulani Sinclair four-point play restored order. Hoosiers doing enough to maintain the double-digit lead now. HOOSIERS 58, MASTODONS 42

11:52: Indiana has gotten sloppy with the ball and the defense, allowing IPFW to put together a sustained run for really the first time all game. HOOSIERS 45, MASTODONS 34

15:29: Teams trade baskets, turnovers. Nothing else much to report. HOOSIERS 43, MASTODONS 25

HALFTIME
Honestly, this game feels like it should be closer than it is, but freshman Nicole Bell hits a pair of late 3s to cap off a 4-of-5 performance beyond the arc for 12 points to lead IU in the first half. The Hoosiers are shooting 15-of-22 (68.2 percent) from the field, including 6-of-11 from 3. Indiana entered the game shooting 34.8 percent from deep. Jasmine McGhee added six points and six rebounds. HOOSIERS 38, MASTODONS 20

FIRST HALF
3:26: Final break of the half, and IU still in command, but IPFW offense has been effective at times and making a lot of hustle plays. HOOSIERS 29, MASTODONS 17

7:36: Sinclair’s first basket is a 3, and she’s fouled, pushing the IU lead to double digits with a free throw coming out of the break. HOOSIERS 22, MASTODONS 11

11:26: Sinclair picks up a second foul, and freshman Nicole Bell steps in with a couple of 3s in her stead. Indiana settling for the outside shot a bit offensively, but the defense has been strong, just forcing a shot clock violation. HOOSIERS 13, MASTODONS 7

15:59: IPFW opens in a 1-3-1 zone that Indiana is still trying to figure out. Andrea Newbauer just hit a 3 after two misses by Aulani Sinclair. HOOSIERS 5, MASTODONS 2

PREGAME
Indiana, off to its best start at 4-1 since 2007-08, looks to make it five consecutive wins when IPFW visits Assembly Hall tonight. The Hoosiers have also held three straight opponents under 50 points for the first time since 1973-74, when they did it five straight games. The task will get a little tougher after this one, with Clemson in on Wednesday for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

IPFW brings some familiar faces for girls’ basketball followers in Columbus East’s Courtney Ogle, Terre Haute South’s Haley Seibert and Hannah Lee, Seymour’s Erin Murphy, Benton Central’s Hillary Moore and Pendleton Heights’ Mur Hagerman, who played AAU with IU guard Andrea Newbauer.
