Hoosiers Knock Off defending Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament champions Maryland in the quarterfinals

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – For seven years, Maryland was either Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament champion or runner-up. This year, No. 5 seeded Indiana beat the No. 4 seeded Terrapins 62-51 in the quarterfinals.

“Maryland has always been the helm,” Indiana head coach Teri Moren said. “They’ve always been the helm. I think that’s for everyone in this league, and if they tell you they’re not, then I think they’re lying.”

Indiana faced the Terrapins twice in the regular season. First, the Hoosiers beat them at home in January then lost at College Park before facing them a week later.
