BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The 2008-09 Indiana women's basketball team recorded one of the most successful seasons in school history, including 21 wins and a year full of individual highlights.
The non-conference slate was highlighted by the Hoosiers winning the Hilton Concord Classic, hosted by St. Mary's College in Moraga, Calif. Indiana head coach Felisha Legette-Jack earned her 100th career win, while Whitney Thomas made her mark as one of the best players in program history as she accomplished 1,000 career points and rebounds. Jamie Braun also reached the 1,000 career points mark, while Kim Roberson became the Hoosiers' all-time steals leader.
The season featured a nine-game win streak, a 7-1 start to the Big Ten slate and the Barn Burner Trophy returning to Bloomington as the Hoosiers knocked off Purdue in Assembly Hall. The year also included a thrilling last second win over Dayton in the second round of the Women's National Invitation Tournament and an exciting win at Bowling Green.
The Hoosiers ended the season with a proper goodbye to its senior class as IU went 4-0 over their tour of Italy.
