Sasha Chaplin will stick around for a sixth year on the Indiana women’s basketball team.

The NCAA granted Chaplin, a redshirt senior forward, a sixth year of eligibility for the 2013-14 season, Indiana announced Friday. Her IU career has been riddled with leg/foot and knee injuries since it began in the 2008-09 season under coach Felisha Legette-Jack. She missed 24 games as a freshman, 10 in 2009-10 and saw action in only two games during the 2010-11 campaign. Over the last two seasons, Chaplin has appeared in 59 of the Hoosiers’ 60 games.

Chaplin was second on the team in field goal percentage last season, shooing 45.2 percent, while averaging 6.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Although Chaplin participated in Senior Day festivities, Indiana coach Curt Miller said that the team would petition the NCAA for a sixth year of eligibility.

Chaplin is working on earning her graduate degree through the School of Informatics in Human Computer Interaction and Design.

This is great news. Sasha is a great kid and when healthy makes a diffence inside. She has been cursed with injuries throughout her career. If she can stay healthy next year, she will provide a strong impact for the Hoosiers! Still haven’t heard if Jenn Anderson from Westfield High School has signed her letter of intent for IU. I keep checking the IUhoosiers website every day and no news?? If she has signed, it would be nice to know. Go Hoosiers!!
