    Indiana tops Michigan

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The No. 13 Indiana University wrestling team concluded the home portion of the 2009-2010 season by defeating the visiting Wolverines of Michigan by a score of 22-13, improving to 14-3 overall and 3-3 in Big Ten action.

    Friday night marked the final appearance of five senior grapplers inside University Gym with each of the three seniors in the line-up picking up wins on `Senior Night.'

    "Senior Night is big for these guys," said Head Coach Duane Goldman. "But it is also always difficult because of the added pressure and expectations of wrestling your last match in front of the home crowd. It was nice to see Angel (Escobedo), Matt (Coughlin) and Nate (Everhart) each get wins tonight. Sorry to see Trevor (Perry) couldn't wrestle tonight. They have all been four-year starters and big for this program."

    Angel Escobedo (28-0), ranked No. 1 in the country, gave the Hoosiers a lead they would never relinquish right out of the gate, pinning Sean Boyle in just over a minute (1:10).

    Michigan would take the next two bouts via decision to temporarily even the team score at 6-6 before IU then pulled away by ripping off three consecutive victories in the middle weights. The trifecta of decisions came from Matt Coughlin, Kurt Kinser and Paul Young.

    Eric Cameron and #2 Nate Everhart (30-0) also walked away with wins against Michigan, recording a decision and major decision, respectively.
