Grace Berger’s status described as day-to-day by Teri Moren

After star guard Grace Berger suffered a serious looking injury on Friday evening, IU fans were bracing for the worst.

But after an MRI on Sunday, there was no season-ending announcement from the program.

In fact, the news sounds promising based on Monday evening comments by head coach Teri Moren.

Berger won’t play for No. 5 IU in their showdown against No. 6 North Carolina in Bloomington on Thursday, and there is no specific timeline for when she’ll see the floor again.

But the door is open for a return for the 6-foot Louisville product.

“What we know is that she did suffer a knee injury, she is out indefinitely, and that’s where we are right now,” Moren said Monday evening on her radio show.  “Time will tell.  She’s day-to-day, and obviously she’s not going to play on Thursday.”

Berger started all 33 games for Indiana a year ago and averaged team-highs with 16.2 points and 4.7 assists per game and also added 6.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game.
