Game Notes

No. 14 Indiana (21-4, 12-3 Big Ten) lost 88-66 to Illinois on Monday afternoon, all but ending its hopes for a second straight Big Ten title.

This loss wasn’t the end of the season, but the Hoosiers have serious work to do now if they want to host the NCAA Tournament.

Princeton (currently 25th) is Indiana’s best win to date…a home loss to Iowa would significantly improve Indiana’s top 16 standing.

But if they don’t take anything positive out of Monday’s loss and the first Iowa game, it won’t happen.

No. 4 Iowa State (23-3, 12-2 Big Ten) is looking to close the gap on Ohio State (13-1 Big Ten) in the championship race, and will face the Buckeyes with two weeks left. The difference is one game. The two teams will meet on the final day of the regular season in what could be a winner-take-all showdown.

Since Indiana last played Iowa State, the Hawkeyes scored 100 or more points three times, lost twice, and Caitlin Clark tied his NCAA all-time leading scorer in his last game. I watched him beat Michigan State 106-89 as a player. They are currently the most important and newest team in the sports world.

Indiana State is 1-5 against Iowa State over the past three seasons, with all but one loss (his BTT championship in 2022) coming by shootout. No matter what the Hoosiers do defensively, Clark will catch them.

Teri Moren’s team needs strong performances from deep from at least two of Sara Scalia, Yarden Garzon, and Sydney Parrish, who just returned from an injury. This will help them secure the kind of victory that is lacking on their record.
