    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana women's basketball coaching staff has announced junior Whitney Thomas and freshman Jori Davis as its team captains for the postseason and summer training seasons.

    Thomas averaged 12.2 points and a team-high 8.7 rebounds per game during her junior year for the Hoosiers. She was one of three team captains during the regular season, sharing the honors with senior Nikki Smith and junior Kim Roberson. Thomas, a Bloomington North product, earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors from the league's media and third team honors from its coaches after collecting 12 double-doubles on the season and ranking third in the Big Ten in rebounding.

    Davis, a native of Rochester, N.Y., averaged 6.8 points and 4.0 rebounds during her rookie season. After missing 12 games due to an injury, Davis returned to the Hoosier lineup and averaged 8.7 points and 3.7 boards. In her first game back, she played key minutes and scored 11 points as IU upset then-No. 18 Ohio State in Bloomington on Feb. 25. She also scored a career-high 14 points in Indiana's first round Big Ten Tournament win over Northwestern on March 6.

    The Hoosiers open postseason workouts on Monday, April 7.
