Teri Moren breaks record for most wins as Indiana women’s basketball coach

Indiana’s women’s basketball coach Teri Moren became the school’s all-time top coach Wednesday night.

Moren won her 189th game at IU, an 83-72 win at No. 21 Illinois, and she did it in only her ninth season at Bloomington. With the win, she surpassed Jim Izard, who coached the program for 12 seasons.

Moren took the Hoosiers to new levels of success during their time in Indiana, leading the team to consecutive Sweet Sixteens and an Elite Eight appearance. Before Moren’s arrival, the Hoosiers had yet to make a sweet sixteen. She was also able to guide Indiana to its first Big Ten Tournament Championship game in 20 years last season.

Before coming to Indiana, Moren played college basketball at Purdue University and was named to the All-Decade team. She then coached across the state of Indiana—first seven years at the University of Indianapolis in the Division II ranks. In 2010, Moren began her D1 coaching career at Indiana State University. In her four years as the team’s coach, she led the program to a conference championship and two appearances at the WNIT.

This season, the Hoosiers are 17-1, with notable victories over Illinois, Maryland and North Carolina. Indiana’s Mackenzie Holmes is the nation’s 12th leading scorer with 21.2 points per game. Moren’s talented roster also helped gain a foothold with fans, as Sunday’s win over Wisconsin had the highest regular-season viewership in the program’s history, with 10,422 fans in attendance. The Hoosiers have a daunting upcoming schedule in which they face back-to-back top-15 teams in No. 14 Michigan and No. 2 Ohio State on the road.
