    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - With the Indiana University women's basketball team competing for its first Big Ten regular season championship since 1983, fans are coming to Assembly Hall in increased numbers. Season ticket sales for the women's program are up 18 percent from last season and individual game attendance has increased by more than 440 per game.

    "We are very excited about the support and enthusiasm this program has received from our Hoosier Nation," IU head women's basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack said. "Indiana Women's Basketball is alive and well, and we are establishing a great group of fans that are going to help us raise banners in Assembly Hall."

    The Hoosiers are 14-4 overall and are tied for second place in the Big Ten standings with a 7-2 record. IU's start to the league schedule is the best in school history. The Hoosiers also have four of their five starters averaging double-digit points, with all five ranking among the top 25 in scoring in the Big Ten. Indiana is receiving votes in the Associated Press poll and has won 13 of its last 15 games.

    Indiana fans are also helping the Hoosiers out on the road. The IU Varsity Club sponsored Win Wagon sold out within 72 hours. The Win Wagon will be taking 55 fans to see the Hoosiers battle Ohio State on Sunday, Feb. 1 in Columbus.
