Yep. Myles was one of the trio (including Peeples and Terry) who were supposed to turn the Illini around. I'm slightly puzzled by Fahey's return.Kind of shocking, I believe Fahey was given a vote of confidence by the administration, altough their record doesn’t indicate it but the team competed hard. Myles is the one that shocks me the most
Although Fahey’s has had the Gopher’s number but it seems coach Whay never seems to have her full starting lineup when they play the IllniYep. Myles was one of the trio (including Peeples and Terry) who were supposed to turn the Illini around. I'm slightly puzzled by Fahey's return.
Are they going to expand the roster to allow Czinano and Micheaux to join the all returning roster?The 2021 class was three recruits. Katie Borowicz was one of them, and she joined the team in January. The other two are Maggie Czinano from Watertown and Alanna Micheaux from Wayne, Michigan. Nothing to indicate that Czinano and Micheaux won't be here for the summer workouts at this time.

Indiana University and IU head women's basketball coach Teri Moren have agreed to a new contract thru 2027 that will make her among the highest compensated women's basketball coaches in the Big Ten.
Moren's new deal runs through the 2026-27 season and increases her annual average compensation to $862,500. In addition, the contract includes an assortment of performance bonuses that can enhance the deal, including bonuses for:
- Big Ten regular and postseason championships;
- NCAA Tournament or WNIT Tournament participation and victories;
- conference and/or national coach of the year accolades; and
- team academic accomplishments.
"Teri Moren is the architect of an unprecedented era of success for our women's basketball program, and I'm excited that we have agreed to a new deal that ensures she will be here for many years to come," said IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Scott Dolson. "With six straight 20-win seasons and this year's run to the Elite Eight, Teri has built our program into one of the very best in the Big Ten.
"This new contract places her in the upper echelon among her conference peers, rewards those achievements, and recognizes the upward trajectory that we are on. In my more than 30 years with the department I've never been as excited about the future of IU Women's Basketball, and that's because we have the right person leading us in the right direction."
In seven years at the helm of the IU program, Moren has compiled a 148-80 overall record (.649) and led the team to the postseason five times, including three trips to the NCAA Tournament. She has won 20 or more games in each of the last six seasons, surpassing the 20-win seasons in the program's first 41 years (four). She has established new program records for conference wins in each of the past two seasons, highlighted by year's 16-2 Big Ten mark
