Indiana women's basketball begins conference play in earnest against Michigan on January 4th. The Hoosiers and the rest of the Big Ten have played two conference games this year; however, those games were in the midst of the non-conference schedule. With winter break over, the Big Ten schedule begins in earnest.
Aside from a blowout loss to Stanford early in the season, the Hoosiers' non-conference schedule could not have gone any better. Indiana has won nine straight games after the loss to the Cardinal. That includes winning both of their games at the Fort Myers Tip-Off.
Indiana should have a lot of confidence coming into conference play. They are looking up to #4 Iowa, but they did split with the Hawkeyes last year. Here's a closer look at the Big Ten Power Rankings heading into conference play.
