    ABOUT INDIANA: Indiana stands at 4-9. The Hoosiers returned this week from the Fresno State Softball Classic with a record of 1-3, but captured a victory over UCLA, thought to be one of the best softball programs in the country. Head coach Diane Stephenson enters her 11th season at the helm of the Hoosiers. She has recorded a career record of 332-241-2. Julie Moss is in her fourth year as an assistant coach, and Donna Bonebrake is starting her third year.

    THE MIGHTY PULLON: Hailing from Bloomington, Ind., freshman Jennifer Pullon has made her mark already on the Indiana softball team starting in all but one game for the Hoosiers. Standing at a mere 5-2, Pullon has proven her offensive abilities receiving Fresno State Softball Classic All-Tournament team honors last weekend, the only Hoosier to do so. Pullon also ranks second on the team with a batting average of .314.

    TRY TO CATCH HER: Junior Khara Good is perfect... in stolen bases this season stealing 5-5. The Co-captain is Indiana's fastest athlete and has sole possession of eighth place on Indiana's all-time base stealers list capturing 37 bases. Good is on-track to best her mark of 16 bases she stole last season. An all-around player, she also leads the team with a .333 batting average.

    NEXT UP: Following the Hoosier Classic, Indiana will play at Miami (Ohio) Tues., March 17 at 2 p.m., and at the University of Missouri Thurs., March 19 at 4 p.m. Finally, the Hoosiers will stay in Missouri to participate in the Missouri Tournament March 20-22.
