That's my hashtag and I say we all stick to it!!!
Let it be known NOW! The only way to think about the next round in the NCAA Women's Division 1 Basketball tournament 2022 is: #UConnWho
That's my hashtag and I say we all stick to it!!!
And OH WOW what a game it is!
First, IU is hosting NCAA games - Know Before You Go: NCAA Tournament First and Second Round At Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall
Second, we won our first round - Hoosiers Cruise in NCAA Opener Over Charlotte
Third, well that happens Monday, March 21 when we face Princeton. Come on Sweet Sixteen!
Very proud of you Hoosier Women players, coaches, and staff alike. Thank you for your wonderful work and spirit.
Hello All! So IU has put out a wonderful webpage salute to the Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. This is where the basketball magic happens here at Indiana University. So click on the link and enjoy. (Yes, Teri Moren and IU WBB are honored too.)
50 Years at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall
So yesterday was Sunday. My last day of winter break before I dove head first into recreating my class website, updating my class materials, and creating new projects for crucial learning. So I decided I would stay home which meant, missing one of the IU WBB games. I felt bad but knew that I would be attending all of them in January and February. By resting on Sunday would allow me to bring new cheering power to future games.
So glad I stayed home. I rested. And it was good.
Oh YES! my wrong my wonderful Hoosier Women WON!!!! And they won BIG!! Just read about it here: No. 8 Indiana women’s basketball defeats No. 6 Maryland 70-63 in overtime. Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Woooo stand up and cheer!!!!! GO IU! See, they beat Maryland which is a team I have great animosity towards due to the behavior of the players and the head coach. So going would have upped my blood pressure to no end.
No I don't keep track of who IU WBB plays before a game. I find out when I get there. The spirit moved me to rest, relax, and then ACHIEVE A SECOND OF SPIRITUAL BLISS WHEN I READ IU BEAT MARYLAND! So yesterday was a very good day.
Keep going, IU WBB. My self care and rest has rejuvenated me. See you in person soon.
Well what can I say. Last year COVID kept fans away from Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Yet the IU Women became Elite 8 in the NCAA. It was good!
This year the IU Women started off with a bang! Team is ranked 10th in the nation and Mackenzie Holmes joined the 1,000 points club at IU.
I am so enjoying this year. It is good to be back with other fans and to see our players on the court. They are leaner, meaner, and they bring joy when watching them.
Come on down to the Hall and cheer on the Hoosiers. Or watch them over media! If you look at the schedule, every game shows where you can watch or hear the game live.
Go IU! Go Hoosiers!
This week the IU Board of Trustees congratulated the Women's Basketball team and the Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving teams for outstanding achievements, i.e., victories this season! Read the wonderful article here and well done IU!!!!

Such a wonderful day for IU Women's Basketball. Such a great day for IU.
What a game!! Wow! Tonight #IUWBB beat Belmont by 1 point!! Wow my heart stopped several times during the game especially at the end. Great steal Ms. Taylor which pulled the ball out of Belmont's hands at the last minute. Whew! We are now on to the second round. Come join Triple B Saturday night, 7 pm at Assembly Hall where our women take on Marquette.
The "Mother of Women's Basketball," Senda Berenson Abbot, was born on this date in 1868. While teaching physical education at Smith College, she organized and officiated the first women's basketball game ever to be played. After meeting with the inventor of basketball, Dr. James Naismith, she wrote an official rulebook for women's college basketball, and its popularity grew with hundreds of teams cropping up nationwide within a few short years. In 1985, she became the first woman to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. - Ms. Magazine, Facebook
I look forward to celebrating Ms. Abbot's legacy by watching the #IUWBB play tonight! See you soon!
