The Hoosiers were able to stave off another dominant performance from Iowa's Megan Gustafson -- who tallied 26 points and 12 rebounds -- thanks to a pair of 20-plus-point games from Ali Patberg and Brenna Wise. Both were efficient, as Patberg had 21 points on 13 shots, while Wise scored 24 on 16 shots to go along with 12 rebounds.

Iowa came into the game having won five in a row and 12 of its previous 14 games. Indiana, meanwhile, had lost four games in a row, and was 3-9 in its last 12 games, before mounting comeback. In front of their home crowd, the Hoosiers got back into the game with a 58-percent mark from the field in the second half.
