Locked on Women’s Basketball: Can Grace Berger and the Indiana Hoosiers reach the Final Four?
Howard and Grace Berger chat about coach Teri Moren and Berger's goal to make a Final Four and win a championship
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal who is joined by Grace Berger, a repeat guest on the show to talk about her new-look team. Moreover, Berger continues an ascent that has both the WNBA and USA Basketball’s attention.
“I mean, I think she has certain standards that she kind of lives by. And if you’re going to be a part of the program, no matter who you are or where you might come from, you’re going to have to meet those standards. And I think that starts with the defensive end. You might not always make shots and you might not always be the most talented team offensively. But you can always win games on that and make it tough on the other team. And I think that’s something that really separates us.”

Grace Berger talks about her goal to make the Final Four with Indiana:
“Absolutely. I think I set out my freshman year I came here; I really wanted to win championships and make a Final Four. And those seem kind of lofty early on, but now, I mean, it’s something that we’ve been right on the doorstep, right there. I’m a few shots away and a few things go our way and we’re there. So you know, especially with the tournament getting canceled the way it did my sophomore year. And so the NCAA tournament has always been my dream; the Final Four has always been my dream Big Ten championship. So I think, though, to pass up an opportunity was something I wasn’t going to do. And to come back and give it one more shot because the pros will still be there down the line.”
