WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Eighteen women, including two former Boilermakers will be recognized as members of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame's 2012 Silver Anniversary Team on Saturday in Indianapolis. Jane (Calhoun) Schott and Teri Moren both were members of the 1987 Indiana All-Star team and went on to play at Purdue.
Selection to the Silver Anniversary Team is based on outstanding accomplishments as a high school basketball player in Indiana 25 years ago. This year's team includes all 12 members of the 1987 Indiana All-Star squad and six other all-state players to comprise the best of Indiana's high school class of 1987.
Schott started every game her senior season at Purdue and averaged career-highs of 5.0 points and 5.0 rebounds. The Tipton, Ind., native was a three-year Academic All-Big Ten selection and was awarded Purdue's Red Mackey Award for academic and athletic excellence. Schott is a teacher and the head girls' basketball coach at West Lafayette H.S. She also serves as an analyst for Purdue women's basketball radio broadcasts.
Moren was a two-year starter at Purdue and along with Schott was a member of Purdue's first team to advance to the NCAA Tournament (1989) and the first Big Ten championship team (1991). The Seymour, Ind., native finished her career 12th in assists and 24th in steals, was a recipient of the Red Mackey Award and the Ruth Jones Award for team leadership and dedication to the sport. Moren just completed her second season as the head women's basketball coach at Indiana State.
