A top 10-matchup on Thanksgiving Day’s Baha Mar Pink Flamingo Classic in Nassau, Bahamas was just as competitive as expected. The No. 4 Indiana Hoosiers fell to No. 7-ranked Stanford Cardinal 69-66. The Hoosiers are now 4-1 on the season.

“They gave us all we can handle and more,” Stanford coach and former Indiana basketball player Tara VanDerveer said in a postgame press conference..

The Hoosiers shot just 23-for-71 from the field (32.4 percent) and were outrebounded 59-38 by the Cardinal. Graduate student guard Ali Patberg led the Hoosiers with 19 points. She also went a perfect 4-for-4 on free throws.
