Indiana had barely earned its biggest win in NCAA Tournament history when coach Teri Moren emerged from her locker room soaked from head to toe.

There could still be a lot of basketball ahead for the Hoosiers, but Moren saw no reason to stop the party after Indiana secured its first Sweet 16 appearance with Wednesday's 70-48 win over Belmont.

"Those kids were pretty excited, got me pretty good in the locker room," Moren said. "That's OK. Wet pants, wet shirt, wet hair ... Just to watch the pure joy these kids have right now is well worth it."
