Felisha Legette-Jack has inked a pair of 2009 recruits according to an IU release. Read it here.
In the meantime, Legette-Jack and the Hoosiers are getting ready to open the 2008-09 season Friday night at Assembly Hall.
“Weâ€™re as ready as we can be,” she said about the opener against Ball State. “We want to find out what weâ€™re all about. We want to see how much blossoming this flower can do.”
The Cardinals are preseason favorites to win the MAC West Division, featuring Bloomington North grad Kiley Jarrett and Illinois transfer Danielle Gratton, a player who could be a matchup problem. “Gratton … is unbelievable. She has an outside shot, an inside game,” Legette-Jack said.
For more on Jarrett and her high school teammates, IU’s Lydia Serfling and Whitney Thomas, read Quick Hits and Friday’s H-T.

Five of Indiana’s six 2009 recruits have submitted their letters of intent to the school, The Herald-Times has learned.
Only Bawa Muniru, the 6-11 center originally from Ghana, has yet to submit his paperwork. The delay is not unexpected: Muniru is attending Mt. Zion in Durham, N.C., while his guardians are in Alabama. So there’s a faxing/mailing issue. The hope within the program is that Muniru’s signing is completed by tomorrow’s 2 p.m. press conference, so that head coach Tom Crean can discuss him.
Christian Watford is holding a press conference later in the week, but he did send his letter in today according to sources close to the program.
