The IU women’s basketball program has been in Greece on a foreign tour over the last week.
The trip allows the team to hold extra practices, play games, build team chemistry and go sightseeing.
On Saturday Indiana completed the second of two games that were scheduled as part of the trip.
Below you can find some summary notes from the two games, along with highlights and box scores.
- Indiana cruised in both contests. They defeated the Greek All-Stars 120-50, and the Patras All-Stars 101-36.
- Sydney Parrish was the team’s leading scorer over the two games. The senior guard scored 22.5 per contest and made 10-of-19 from three-point range.
- Fifth-year guard Sara Scalia was also red hot from beyond the arc, making 10-of-22 combined in the two games. Scalia averaged 18 per contest.
- Scalia left very late in the second game with what appeared to be an injury to her left leg after she landed awkwardly on a contested layup. She took another 3-pointer on the possession after the injury, but she was in obvious discomfort and asked to come out of the game immediately thereafter.
- Sophomore guard Lexus Bargesser started both games and made 13-of-19 shots. She averaged 15.5 points and had five assists against just one turnover while contributing eight steals.
- As a precautionary measure, All-American center Mackenzie Holmes did not play. She injured her knee late in the 2022-23 season.
- Sophomore Lilly Meister started in place of Holmes. She had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds in the first game, but made just 1-of-7 in the second contest.
- Senior guard Chloe Moore-McNeil had 11 assists in the two games and no turnovers.
- If there was anyone who appeared to struggle in the games it was sophomore Yarden Garzon, who made just 2-of-11 from three and had five turnovers.
- IU’s three newcomers all had bright moments:
- Freshman guard Lenee Beaumont averaged 9.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists.
- Freshman guard Jules LaMendola had a 15 point game and averaged 5.5 rebounds.
- Transfer forward Sharnecce Currie-Jelks made 12-of-15 shots and averaged 13 points and five rebounds.
- Indiana was dominant on the glass in both games, posting 61-24 and 62-28 rebounding margins.
