For Indiana, there will be one familiar face on the other side. Arizona guard Bendu Yeaney played at Indiana, where she helped the Hoosiers win the WNIT in 2018 and advance to the Round of 32 in 2019 before tearing her Achilles. Yeaney, originally from Oregon, decided to transfer closer to home and went to Arizona.
