The Indiana women routed Wisconsin 93 – 56 at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall in front of a regular season record crowd of 10,422 on Sunday afternoon. In the post-game interview, the Hoosier’s head coach Teri Moren said, “I want to comment quickly on the crowd, which was unbelievable. The second largest in history in our program, which is pretty terrific. It was one of those days where there was a lot of really good basketball that they were able to see.”
One of the standouts on Sunday afternoon was the shooting of freshman Yarden Garzon who made four 3-pointers on 7 of 9 shooting with eight rebounds, seven assists, and 19 points for the game. In the post-game, the Israel native Yarden Garzon was asked what led to her big game; she mentioned that her family was in attendance and had not seen them since August. Yarden said, “It’s been a lot for me, so it was great to look up and see their faces.”
Senior Mackenzie Holmes led the Hoosiers with 29 points, eight rebounds, and one assist. Wisconsin had no answer on how to Holmes in the paint. With the game in hand, Indiana rested Holmes late as she continued to root on her teammates from the bench.
Indiana’s defense held the Badgers to just 34.9 percent field goal shooting and 20 percent on three while scoring 31 points off 21 Wisconsin turnovers. Next for the 16-1 Hoosiers is a road trip to Illinois on Wednesday at 8 p.m.
