ISU women play today at Marshall

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State women’s basketball players put their hands together at the end of practice Thursday, shouting a collective “do work.”

On the heels of a 90-74 loss at Stetson, the Missouri Valley Conference preseason favorites are 2-2 and not content with losing, especially when giving up 90 points.

“I think this game was really an eye opener, really exposed our weaknesses as a team,” ISU senior Anna Munn said. “We just need to come together, get back our chemistry. Get back the camaraderie we had during the off-season. We needed an eye-opener, and I think we got it.”

The Sycamores put together a spirited practice, and our hoping to correct the issues going into today’s game at Marshall (1-2).

“Our communication at both ends of the court [was a problem],” said Munn, who needs six points to reach 1,000 in her career. “We could never get on the same page for whatever reason. Our effort wasn’t really there, and that’s not the team we want to be. After that loss, we’re going to have that back. Practice has been more intense. We’ve had two really good practices. Whatever’s in the past is in the past, we’re moving forward.”

Coach Teri Moren wants her team to be the one setting the tone with pace of play from the opening tip. That’s what it takes to win road games, in particular.

“I thought Stetson came out, rightly so being at home, the more aggressive team,” Moren said. “Being on the road, you have to be the more aggressive team. You have to get the 50-50 balls, your energy, enthusiasm all that has to be at a very high level.  From the beginning, Stetson came out and were so much more aggressive than we were. That’s the disappointment, we didn’t react to that ... We gave up 90 points.

“Our challenge from our group is we’ve got to get out of the gates better and quicker. We’ve got to get back to our defensive principles.”

Marshall is averaging just over 50 points-per-game and shooting 31 percent from the field through three games. The Herd are led by 6-0 wing Leah Scott, averaging 12.7 points.
