Two Indiana Women's Basketball Non-Conference Games To Be Televised On Big Ten Network
Sept. 12, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Two non-conference games on the 2007-08 Indiana women's basketball slate will be televised on the Big Ten Network, the league office announced on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
The Hoosiers' battle against Florida State, which is slated for Friday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. ET in Assembly Hall, will be the first game fans can see Indiana in action on the network. The match-up is apart of the first annual Big Ten/ACC Women's Basketball Challenge.
"Sue Semrau has done a tremendous job of building Florida State into a national power," IU head coach Felisha Legette-Jack said. "It's been a long time coming and in the last couple of years she really has been teetering on exploding into the top-16 in the country. It's going to be exciting to have Florida State visit Bloomington. It will give us a chance to gauge where we are as a basketball program."
Indiana will also face NCAA Sweet 16 participant Bowling Green on national television on Sunday, Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. ET in Bloomington.
"It's always exciting to play Bowling Green because Curt Miller and I worked together at Syracuse," Legette-Jack said. "Last year they really showed us how much work we have to do. To see how much Curt has grown Bowling Green is unbelievable, but it shows his work ethic and his intestinal fortitude is beyond reproach. It's going to be exciting to have them play us in Assembly Hall."
"It's great for our program to get additional exposure on television," Legette-Jack said. "During recruiting, my coaches are all over the country letting people know that Indiana women's basketball is alive and well. For these games to be on television, it's only going to enhance our ability to recruit nationally."
