Going to California. It’s one of my favorite Zeppelin songs, and also what Indiana women’s basketball happens to be doing this weekend.
The Hoosiers are headed west to face traditional power Stanford in leg one of a home-and-home series announced this summer. Indiana last played the Cardinal on November 25, 2021, losing to the (then) defending national champs 66-61.
