IU Women’s Hoops Senior Day

The Hoosiers' relentless defense allowed them to come back and capture the win on senior day.

The IU women’s basketball team trailed Michigan early on Sunday. The Hoosiers’ relentless defense, however, allowed them to come back and capture the win on senior day.

“All the upperclassmen pushed me tremendously on the court and helped me off-court as well,” said IU guard Ashlee Mells.

That is the type of trendsetter every basketball coach looks for. Lucky for Felisha Legette-Jack to have four players who exemplify top-notch leadership to the fullest. Amber Jackson, Kim Roberson, Lydia Serfling and Whitney Thomas were honored after Sunday’s 67-61 win.

“They made this team competitive,” said coach Jack. “They made this community feel they could touch the student-athletes here. We get out and we compete on the court. But we get out and touch the fans. I think that’s something that belongs to them.”

The senior class is not done just yet. On Thursday, IU heads to Indy for the annual Big Ten Tournament and a chance to show the NCAA why the Cream and Crimson belong in this year’s March Madness.
