Indiana women’s basketball coach Teri Moren led the US women’s U19 team to a FIBA Gold Medal after defeating Spain on Sunday afternoon.

Moren is now a two-time gold medal-winning coach.

Moren led Indiana to a 28-4 record where the Hoosiers won their first regular season Big Ten title in 40 years. Indiana also entered the NCAA Tournament as a one-seed, the first time in program history to receive that seeding.

Below is the full release from the Indiana women’s basketball program.

MADRID – Indiana head coach Teri Moren is now a two-time gold medalist as she helped USA Basketball’s U19 women’s team to a win in the championship game of FIBA U19 Women’s Championships on Sunday night.

USA defeated Spain, 69-66, at Palacio de Deportes in Madrid. Moren previously won a gold medal with the same group playing in the 2022 U18 Women’s Championship in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The reigning AP National Coach of the Year and the IU program’s all-time winningest coach, Moren has compiled a 200-93 record (99-57 Big Ten) during her nine seasons in Bloomington. She’s enjoyed eight straight 20-win seasons, doubling the number of 20-win seasons that the program enjoyed in the previous 41 years.

She’s coming off a 2022-23 season where she guided the program to a 28-4 overall record, its first Big Ten regular season championship in 40 years, and its first-ever No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.  Her IU teams have earned invitations to each of the last four NCAA Tournaments and five overall during her tenure. Each of her NCAA-bound IU teams have won at least one NCAA Tournament game, while the 2020-21 team advanced to the Elite Eight and the 2021-22 team to the Sweet 16. In addition to the NCAA berths the team earned two WNIT invitations, highlighted by the 2018 WNIT Championship.
