BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University senior midfielder Nikita Kotlov is the Big Ten Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, while freshman Colin Webb is the Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
Kotlov tallied a goal and an assist in Indiana's 3-0 win at Northwestern on Nov. 8, giving IU the No. 5 seed in this week's Big Ten Tournament. Kotlov's shot off the underside of the cross bar gave IU a 2-0 lead in the 67th minute of play. It was Kotlov's fifth goal of the season, tied for tops on the team, and his second goal in as many matches.
