ISU women’s basketball hitting road this weekend

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State’s self-esteem suffered no damage after a 20-point home loss to Wichita State on Monday.

Now the Sycamores are eager to get back on the floor, junior Racheal Mahan said this week as the ISU women’s basketball team hits the road to play Bradley and Loyola this weekend.

“When you lose, you’ve just got to learn from it so I feel like we know what we need to do now and we know what we need to get better at,” Mahan said. “When we play Bradley, we’ll be ready for it. Bradley likes to get out and run in transition just like Wichita.”

Mahan said Bradley, which ranks second in the Missouri Valley Conference in scoring, is no team to mess around with despite its 4-14 record overall.

“They only lost to Wichita by two and that shows they’ve got fight,” she said. “You can’t let a record fool you ... Right now, it’s just about getting better. Every day in practice, there’s something we can get better at. Even after a win, we’re learning.”

ISU coach Teri Moren concurs. The Braves are 1-6 in Valley play, battling through five road games during the start of league play.

“They jumped on Wichita real fast, had a big lead. Wichita snuck out of there with a two-point win,” she said. “As I told our kids, teams that are desperate are dangerous, and this is a desperate team right now. They’ve lost their last four and they play better at home. It’s important we look past their record the past four games.”

The Braves are a guard-oriented team that can get up and down the court well. Moren plans to start Lashonda Littleton in place of Stephanie Wittman.

“That poses some problems for us. We’ll be running around on the perimeter. We’re capable of guarding a smaller lineup, but it’s a challenge for our bigs,” Moren said.

The Sycamores will play Sunday in their first game against league newcomer Loyola (8-11, 4-3 MVC).
