Preview: Gophers women at Indiana
- March 2, 2013 - 8:11 PM
Gophers at a glance: The Gophers (17-12, 6-9 Big Ten) will look to build on the momentum from their biggest victory of the season, an 89-81 home victory over conference champion Penn State on Thursday. The Gophers are No. 73 in the latest Realtimerpi.com standings, meaning they likely have a lot of work to do -- perhaps needing to win the Big Ten tournament, which starts next week -- to make the NCAA tournament. A victory over Indiana, however, would be a good start. The Gophers are tops in the Big Ten and No. 12 in the nation with a 44.6 field-goal percentage for the season. That number was boosted by a sizzling-hot 66.7 percent shooting night in the victory over the seventh-ranked Lady Lions.
Indiana at a glance: The Hoosiers (11-17, 2-13) are in last place in the Big Ten. All of their conference losses except one have been by at least 10 points. Their two conference victories, however, have come at home -- over Northwestern and Purdue. Sunday's game is senior day for Indiana, with Sasha Chaplin, Jasmine McGhee, Linda Rubene and Aulani Sinclair slated to be recognized.
