Indiana women’s basketball will start off the 2022-23 season at No. 11 in the USA Today/WBCA coaches preseason poll, announced on Wednesday.
The Hoosiers appear in the coaches poll for the 41st consecutive week, dating back to the 2019-20 season. They also came in at No. 11 in the final poll last season. Additionally, the program will start the season at No. 11 in the Associated Press preseason top 25.
IU is coming off consecutive Sweet Sixteen appearances where it finished 24-9 overall in 2021-22 and are highlighted by All-Americans graduate student guard Grace Berger and senior forward Mackenzie Holmes. The program will also welcome seven new players to its roster this season including 2022 Indiana Ms. Basketball junior guard Sydney Parrish and senior guard Sara Scalia.
Indiana was selected to finish second (media) and third (coaches) in the annual Big Ten preseason polls earlier this month as Berger and Holmes earned spots on the All-Big Ten preseason team.
