March Madness: Indiana becomes 2nd No. 1 seed to be eliminated before Sweet 16 for 1st time in 25 years

After the game, Solidify told the ESPN broadcast that Miami aide mentor Fitzroy Anthony told her to “dominate the f***ing match.”

The senior forward got done with 18 focuses on 5-of-9 shooting with five bounce back, while Indiana All-American Mackenzie Holmes drove all scorers with 22 places, nine bounce back and three helps.

Miami’s compensation for the irritated will be No. 4 Villanova on Friday in the Greenville 2 district.
