A SEASON TO REMEMBER
Indiana enters the Big Ten Tournament with 13 wins overall and six in Big Ten play, both of which are among the best single-season totals in program history.
The 13 wins are the most since 2007 and only the 1998 team that won 14 games has ever won more. That same 1998 team is the only other IU team to ever win six Big Ten games.
Shannon Flower and Rebecca Dreher were named to the Capital One Academic All-District 5 First Team on Oct. 31, becoming just the third and fourth players in IU history to receive the first team accolades. Carrie DeFreece (2006) and Carly Everett (2002) are the other two first team recipients in IUWS history.
Rebecca Candler was also named to the second team all-district.
HOOSIERS HELPING HOOSIERS
As a team, Indiana has racked up 38 assists this season to set a new school record for team assists in a single-season, beating the old total of 35 set in 1998.
