WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Former Boilermaker Teri Moren was announced as part of the 2014 Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame Class on Tuesday, and will be honored with the class on Saturday, April 26, 2014. One of 10 members of this year's class, Moren played for the Purdue women's basketball program from 1987 to 1991, and currently serves as the head women's basketball coach at Indiana State University.

"It's always exciting to see more Boilermakers going into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame," said Purdue head coach Sharon Versyp, "but it's even more exciting to see a teammate honored this way."

Versyp and Moren played together on the 1987-88 Purdue women's basketball squad, which went 21-10 under head coach Lin Dunn and finishing second in the 1988 WNIT. Moren went on to play in the first three NCAA Tournaments in Purdue history in 1989, 1990 and 1991, advancing to the Sweet 16 as a junior, and still holds a spot on the all-time assists record list with 275 career helpers.

Moren was a part of four sectional champions, two regional champions and the 1987 state finalists, leading to an Indiana All-Star selection and spot in Seymour High School record books. Playing under Hall of Fame coach Donna Sullivan, Moren remains 4th in career scoring (1,138 points), 4th in career assists (311), 2nd in career steals (251) and holds the season field goals made record (203).

Previously an assistant womens coach at Butler University, Northwestern University and Georgia Tech University, she served seven seasons as head coach of the University of Indianapolis (2000-2007) and is currently in her fourth season as head coach at Indiana State University.

The Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame's 13th Annual Women's Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday, April 26, 2014. The day's events will include a free reception at the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame museum that afternoon and a banquet that evening at the Primo Banquet Hall in Indianapolis. Reservations are available online now and tickets for the banquet will be made available in 2014. Call the Hall at 765-529-1891 or visit www.hoopshall.com for more information.
