MOUNT ST. MARY'S vs. #24 INDIANA
Thursday, November 7 | 7:00 p.m.
Bloomington, Ind. | Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Nov. 6, 2019) - Mount St. Mary's women's basketball continues their road swing against Top 25 teams Thursday (Nov. 7), with a showdown against the #24 Indiana Hoosiers. Tip off is 7 p.m. at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
This is the first-ever meeting between the Mount and Indiana. Mount St. Mary's is looking for their first victory over a Big Ten school in their fourth try, after two losses to Iowa in 1994 and 2000, and a defeat at Michigan last year.
Mount St. Mary's limited #13 Kentucky to a 33.3% shooting percentage and was within striking distance until the midway point of the third quarter. However, turnovers were an issue, and the squad struggled to finish shots on offense. Jatarrikah Settle had the best game for the Mount with 10 points, six rebounds and five assists. Aryna Taylor - seeing her first game action in three years - came off the bench to score eight points, with two rebounds. Kayla Agentowicz also returned from an injury that sidelined her for 18 months, coming back with six points and six rebounds.
SCOUTING THE HOOSIERS
Indiana is playing its first game of the 2019-20 season, fresh off a 21 win season and a trip to the second round of the NCAA tournament last year. Led by sixth-year head coach Teri Moren, the Hoosiers are riding four straight postseason championships, including a WNIT title in 2018. They are poised to make another run after returning 91 percent of their scoring from last year, including Ali Patberg - an All-Big Ten Second Team selection with 15.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists per contest. Seven new additions are joining the Hoosiers, led by 2019 Indiana Miss Basketball Jorie Allen and Maine Gatorade Player of the Year Mackenzie Holmes.
Mount St. Mary's returns home to Emmitsburg for a Monday evening (Nov. 11) contest with Frostburg State. It will be the first matchup between the Mountaineers and Bobcats since 1982.
