Sydney Parrish is out indefinitely with a foot injury, which head coach Teri Moren said will be 'an adjustment' for the entire team.— chloe peterson (@chloepeterson67) January 26, 2024
Also an update on Sharnecce Currie-Jelks, who has been out since Dec. 22. @IndyStarSports #iuwbbhttps://t.co/BBPxGptuB6
Parrish was out for the Hoosiers’ game against Purdue, walking onto the court on crutches and supporting the team from the bench throughout the game. The injury was sustained during a previous practice.
As the third leading scorer, second leading rebounder and a relentless source of energy on the court, it’s a definite blow for a Hoosiers team making its way through a top-to-bottom tougher Big Ten.
Lexus Bargesser started in Parrish’s place after coming off the bench in relief of Chloe Moore-McNeil. Indiana is going to need its backcourt to crash the boards to fill the gap left by Parrish.
Indiana was already without sophomore forward Sharnecce Currie-Jelks, who Moren said has been “dealing with personal issues,” in her absence. She’d transferred into the program after a highly successful freshman season at UT-Martin.
