Following a great regular season that saw the Indiana women's basketball team take its place among the best teams in the nation, it is no surprise to see some Hoosiers earn all-conference honors. In fact, the program placed four players on All-Big Ten teams and two more on the All-Big Ten Defensive Team in the league's annual postseason honors, announced on Tuesday.

Forward Mackenzie Holmes and guard Sara Scalia each garnered All-Big Ten first-team recognition while guard Chloe Moore-McNeil earned second-team honors and guard Yarden Garzon landed on the honorable mention team.

In five seasons with IU, Holmes has earned four All-Conference honors. That includes three times being a first-team All-Big Ten member.

This year, she is a unanimous selection in both the coaches and media voting. The native of Maine leads her team in scoring at 20.7 points per game, rebounding at 7.1 per game, and blocks at 1.5 per game. She also leads the NCAA in field goal percentage at 67.0 percent.

Holmes is now also an all-league defender for the third time (2021, 2023, 2024). That's due in large part because she is fourth in the Big Ten in blocks (41).

Scalia also a senior, has also earned her fourth All-Big Ten honor but this is her first time being named to the first-team. She is second on the team with 16.3 points per game and leads the Big Ten by shooting 43.8% from 3-point range. What's more, her 91 3-pointers set a single-season program record.

Moore-McNeil is a second-team selection for the second year in a row. She leads her team with 4.9 assists per game and a sterling +2.7 assist-to-turnover ratio. Additionally, she pours in 10.1 points per game, pulls down 3.4 rebounds per game, and swipes 1.3 steals per game.

Moore-McNeil also earned a spot on the all-defense team. She leads IU with 37 steals (1.3 per game) this season.

Garzon also earns her second All-Big Ten honor as an honorable-mention recipient. She is third on the team in points at 11.7 per game. She also posts 4.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.

This week, the Hoosiers will look to take home the Big Ten Tournament crown. They begin their pursuit of the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on Thursday night in Minneapolis.
