The Indiana State Sycamores basketball team is a NCAA Division I women's basketball program of Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana. The Sycamores compete in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Sycamore basketball history[edit]

In 1971, women's basketball became an intercollegiate sport at Indiana State University. In 1982, the sport was elevated to revenue status, which meant more money was available. Under Coach Edith Godleski, Indiana State qualified for its first WNIT Tournament game in 1976. The Sycamores were a charter member of the Gateway Conference in 1983, maintaining membership until the Gateway merged with the Missouri Valley Conference in 1992. In 1989, Indiana State won its first regular season championship. They won Missouri Valley titles in 2003 and 2006, though they failed to win the tournament title.
