Hoops - Ladies Add A Quality Assistant Coach

Looks like the lady hoopsters added an impressive assistant coach in University of Indianapolis Head Women’s Basketball Coach Teri Moren

Moren marked uncharted territory in the Greyhound annals, leading her 2003-04 squad to an unprecedented third straight 20+ win season and a return to the NCAA Division II tournament. The Hounds recorded a 22-10 mark and once again advanced to the round of 32 for the third straight season. UIndy compiled a 74-22 (.771) record in that span.

In her seven-year tenure, Moren compiled a 160-73 record (.687), the second-most coaching wins in the program’s history. Moren etched a milestone on March 4, 2005, turning in her 100th career victory in a 85-70 win over Wisconsin-Parkside.

Moren earned NCAA II Russell Athletic/ WBCA Region IV "Coach of the Year" and GLVC "Coach of the Year" honors in 2002-03 after leading her team to a 29-3 record and GLVC regular-season and tournament championships. Moren’s record-setting squad set school records for wins in a season (29), best winning percentage (.906), winning streak (17), and GLVC victories (18). Her Greyhounds earned the school’s first GLVC regular-season title since 1993 and just the second in school history.

Moren was an assistant under Olkowski at Butler for six years from 1993-99, as recruiting coordinator as well as assisting with on-court coaching, scouting, game preparation, and academic monitoring and scheduling. Seven BU players combined for 12 All-MCC selections during that time. Moren recruited nine Indiana All-Stars to Butler.

During that six-year span, the Bulldogs posted a 114-56 record (.671), earning their first-ever NCAA Tournament berth in 1996 by winning the Midwestern Collegiate Conference Tournament. Butler also competed in the Women’s NIT in 1998 after winning the MCC regular season championship with a 13-1 league ledger.

Moren was a four-year starting point guard at Purdue. She helped the Boilermakers to their first-ever NCAA "Sweet Sixteen" appearance in 1990, the Big 10 Championship in 1991, and three NCAA Tournament berths. Moren also excelled off the court, earning the Red Mackey Award for academic and athletic excellence and the Ruth Jones Memorial Award for team leadership and dedication.
