Mater Dei forward Muensterman commits to IU women

Indiana women’s basketball coach Curt Miller added another piece to his 2014 recruiting class on Sunday, landing a verbal commitment from Evansville Mater Dei forward Maura Muensterman.

Muensterman, who’s averaging a team-best 24 points and 8.4 assists per game, was recently ranked as the top girls’ player in the state for the 2014 class. She’s also a Gatorade Player of the Year Three Pillar candidate.

She recently missed seven games due to a sprained ankle, but returned to the lineup on Thursday and scored 19 points to help Mater Dei beat Castle, 70-47. Muensterman famously helped Mater Dei win the Class 2A state title a season ago when she hit the game-winning shot to knock off Fort Wayne Luers in overtime.

Muensterman is the third fourth player to join Indiana’s 2014 class, joining Michigan wing Jessica Walter, Ohio forward Amanda Cahill and highly-touted Illinois point guard Tyra Buss. It will be a reunion of sorts for Muensterman and Buss, who played together on the Indiana Elite AAU team last summer.

Another great get for coach Miller. The hits keep on coming! Good to see another Indiana girl coming our way. This is another recruit that can score according to what she has done this year and she is obviously a winner cosidering last year’s state championship. These are the type of recruits you want, offensively minded and girls that know how to win! As coach Miller has stated many times this year, changing the culture of IU basketball is the key and his recruiting of the types of players he has coming in is his strength. Scorers that will be coached to play strong defense is the key! Go Hoosiers!!
