IU Head Coach Angel Escobedo
"I thought the guys went out there and competed and got bonus points, which we have been asking all season. It was awesome to see those pins that helped this team. It is great when you start off at 125 and have that pin to get that momentum. I thought the guys performed really well today. We have to build off this and head into Purdue."
