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

With win over Illinois, Moren passes Jim Izard

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

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

Moren has brought the Hoosiers to a new level of success in her time at Indiana, leading the team to consecutive Sweet Sixteens and an Elite Eight appearance. Prior to Moren’s arrival, the Hoosiers had yet to make it to a Sweet Sixteen. She was also able to take 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 went on to coach throughout the state of Indiana — first at University of Indianapolis in the Division II ranks for seven years. In 2010, Moren began her D1 coaching career at Indiana State University. In her four years coaching the team, she led the program to a conference championship and two appearances in the WNIT. 

This season, the Hoosiers are 17-1, with notable wins over Illinois, Maryland and North Carolina. Indiana’s Mackenzie Holmes is the 12th leading scorer in the nation with 21.2 points per game. Moren’s talented squad has also helped to gain traction with the fans, as Sunday’s win against Wisconsin boasted the highest regular-season attendance in program history with 10,422 fans present. The Hoosiers have a daunting upcoming schedule, facing back-to-back top 15 teams in No. 14 Michigan and No. 2 Ohio State at home.
