LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — It didn't take long for Teresa Maggio to decide where she wanted to play basketball in college.

"IUPUI was always high on my list," Maggio said.

IUPUI was the first school to offer Maggio a scholarship back on July 10. Ten days later, the McCutcheon junior committed.

"To receive that as my first offer I knew that was probably where I'd end up going," Maggio said.

One of the main reasons Maggio picked the Jaguars was head coach Austin Parkinson, a former Purdue guard.

"He's going to help me grow my game when I get there and even before I get there," Maggio said. "I can become the player he wants to lead his program for the four years I'm there."

Maggio only played in four games this past season for the Maverick, but in those four games she averaged 18.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists.

Maggio's return helped the Mavericks reach a sectional championship game.

IUPUI is coming off its first Horizon League championship in school history. Maggio is looking to continue that success when she arrives in 2022.

"The motivation now is to fix all of the things that I can to get ready for IUPUI," Maggio said. Now it's not about worrying about the offers, committing, or what school I want to go to, but it's more about what can I do to help [IUPUI] when I get there so that maybe we can make another NCAA appearance."
