Xavier at Indiana women’s basketball

By   |   Sunday, Nov. 16, 2008 - 2:46 PM   |   Comments Off

Kim Roberson had a chance to put IU ahead with 17.8 seconds left, but missed the first half of a 1-and-1, trailing 60-59, and Xavier got the rebound. Two Xavier free throws at 14. 1 stretched that lead to 62-59. Braun had a good look at a 3 with about two seconds left but missed.

Final Xavier 62, Indiana 59

—————-

Both teams have gone cold with defensive pressure turned up late in the game. At a timeout with 3:17 left, the score is tied at 55, and IU will be shooting two free throws when play resumes. Jamie Braun, in particular, can’t get a shot to fall (2-of-9) and isn’t on the floor right now.

————–

With 8:30 left, this remains quite a battle. IU guard Whitney Lindsay has tied the game at 49 with a 3.

———————

With two straight 3-pointers, Xavier has pulled ahead 44-41 with 14:05 left. The Hoosiers need to reverse the momentum soon or this is going to be another of those missed opportunities that this program has experienced as Legette-Jack has built her program.

————-

Second half under way with Indiana scoirng the first two. Whitney Thomas just took a big shot to the nose from a Xavier elbow, but foul was called. “Are you kidding me?” Legette-Jack called out to the referees. Thomas in some pain, but she’s staying in. The Hoosier coach is definitely not pleased with the officiating this afternoon. Score: 35-33 IU with 17:01 in the game.

————-

After Indiana dominated early, the Musketeers played more like a ranked team late in the half. With 24 seconds left in the half, though, Xavier’s 6-5 star Ta’Shia Phillips, who has just four points, picked up her third foul. On the same play, Jamie Braun limped off with what looked like might be a sprained ankle.

Halftime: Indiana 26, Xavier 21

My bad

During the chat (below) I was asked how badly IU had been out-scored in the second half this year. The number I provided was wrong because I forgot to include two games in my calculation.

After today’s loss, the Hoosiers have lost the second half of games back to and including the one against Ball State on Sept. 20 by a combined score of 170-33.

I apologize for the error.

Checking in from State College

Caught a bit of Penn State’s 65-51 win against William & Mary to open the basketball season tonight. Talor Battle, who was pretty stellar as a freshman last year, has really become a very dynamic guard at the Big Ten level. Of course I watched this game thinking about how Indiana would match up, and I’m anxious to see how Verdell Jones and Daniel Moore handle Battle at the point of attack. He’s awfully quick.

Anyway, the Hoosiers’ football team has arrived here and is back relaxing at the hotel. They were unable to go through a walk-through because the field at Beaver Stadium was covered. There’s been a ton of rain here, and last I checked there’s a 70 percent chance of more showers tomorrow. Not sure what that might mean as far as having an impact on the game. Probably means the Nittany Lions will rely more on the run; could see a lot of that “Wildcat” formation with Derrick Williams running around.

Anyway, this hasn’t been posted here yet and it should be: Here’s Jared Poertner’s free preview of the game. The Poert Report, if you will.

FINAL: HOOSIERS 84, CARDINALS 68

Indiana will host Xavier Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. in the second round of the Preseason WNIT. Kiley Jarrett finishes with 11 points, four assists and two rebounds in front of a hometown crowd. Fellow former Cougar Whitney Thomas collects 15 points and seven rebounds for the victors.

2:50, SECOND HALF: Jori Davis returned with 5:50 left, scoring five points in just over a minute before fouling out on a charging call. Indiana now firmly in control of this one as six Hoosiers are now in double figures. And in case you’re wondering, Jamie Braun has not played a second in this one. HOOSIERS 81, CARDINALS 60

6:59, SECOND HALF: IU seems in good shape here, but Ball State just hanging around. 6-foot-3 freshman Sasha Chaplin making a big impact tonight with 11 points and six rebounds. Kiley Jarrett is stuck on 7 points but has had a couple nifty assists. Her high school teammate Whitney Thomas has 10 points and seven rebounds. HOOSIERS 68, CARDINALS 53
