Palo Alto, California – November 12, 2023

In a non-conference showdown, the Indiana University women’s basketball team faced a tough challenge against Stanford, ultimately falling 96-64 at Maples Pavilion.

The Hoosiers, entering the game with a 1-1 record, encountered a  formidable opponent in Stanford who secured their second victory of the season and improved to 2-0 overall. The Pac-12 powerhouse dominated the game, showcasing their offensive prowess and defensive tenacity.

The contest saw Stanford’s Cameron Brink and Kiki Iriafen leading the charge, scoring 20 points each and contributing significantly on both ends of the court. Stanford displayed a balanced offensive attack,  with Hannah Jump, Elena Bosgana, and Nunu Agara also making substantial contributions.

On the Indiana University side, the Hoosiers faced challenges in shooting efficiency, particularly from beyond the arc. The team struggled to find their rhythm, shooting 15.6% from three-point range.  Despite the efforts of key players like Sara Scalia and Sydney Parrish,  who both finished with 15 points, the Hoosiers couldn’t match Stanford’s offensive firepower.

Stanford held the IU’s Mackenzie Holmes to just 8 points, and Yarden Garzon to 6.

Chloe Moore-McNeil provided additional support for Indiana with 11  points and six assists, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Stanford’s dominance.
