IU Head Coach Angel Escobedo
"What a great way for our seniors to go out, with the shut out. Chattanooga is a tough team. They shared for a conference title. We didn't take them lightly. I'm glad the way our seniors competed and everyone else. It is a brotherhood, like I told them before they went out there. I said let's leave the seniors on a good note and that is what they did today."
