The Iowa women’s team basketball team (13-11, 6-7) eked out a 71-67 win over Indiana (13-11, 6-7) in Bloomington on Thursday.

Freshman Jaime Printy posted a career-high 28 points, and junior Kachine Alexander added 21 points and 16 rebounds, the 11th double-double of her career.

Junior Kelsey Cermak had 10 points off the bench.

“I feel extremely happy to get out of here with a win,” head coach Lisa Bluder said. “Indiana is obviously playing very well on their home court.”

The Hawkeyes played without sophomore Kamille Wahlin, who sat out after suffering a concussion on Sunday.

“To win on the road in the Big Ten, without our point guard, is a great accomplishment,” Alexander said. “We’re thrilled to get this win.”

The teams were tied at halftime and again at the 2:51 mark in the second half. A Kelly Krei free throw put the Hawks ahead, and a lay-up by Alexander put the Hawkeyes up, 67-64, at the 1:52 mark.

With two seconds left, the Hooisers trailed by two, but they missed a lay-up, then fouled Krei with one second left. She hit both free throws.

The Hawkeyes improved to 40-15 all-time against Indiana with the victory. It was also the team’s fifth win in six games.

Iowa will return to action against Illinois in the Hawkeyes’ “Go Red for Women’s Day” game at Carver-Hawkeye Arena at 2 p.m. Feb. 14. The game will be televised live on KCRG-TV9.
