The Clemson women’s basketball team will travel to Bloomington, IN to play Indiana on Nov. 28 in the 2012 installment of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. It will be the second time in the past three seasons that the teams will meet in the annual inter-conference showdown, which the ACC has won four times and tied last season. Clemson is 2-3 all-time in the Challenge, including dropping back-to-back home meetings with Indiana in 2010 and Illinois in 2011. Indiana and Clemson are 1-1 against one another all-time.
