IU Head Coach Angel Escobedo
"That was exciting. It was good to get a win here in Wilkinson Hall. I think our guys were out there competing really hard. Graham Rooks is kind of the staple of this lineup, this program, and it's good to see. Same thing with Liam Cronin, those guys are our leaders. They're capitalizing on the opportunity to compete in front of the home crowd."
