HOOSIERS PREPARE FOR BIG TEN SHOWDOWN Swim and Dive team visits Michigan State and Michigan
This Week: The Indiana men's swimming and diving team looks to win their fourth and fifth dual meets in a row this weekend at Michigan State and Michigan. The Hoosiers will swim the Spartans, Friday at 7:00pm and the Wolverines, Saturday at 12:00pm.
Last Week: On Saturday, the Hoosiers faced the Cincinnati Bearcats for the second time this season and came away victorious, 123-118. Indiana's divers lead the charge by outscoring Cincinnati's divers 32-4. Sophomore Tom Davidson won the one and three-meter diving competitions and Ken Ackermann won in the 100 backstroke and Rob Iglinski placed first in the 100 breaststroke.
The Michigan State Spartans: Friday's opponent, Michigan State, is 0-5 on the season and 0-3 in the Big Ten. Last season, the Hoosiers beat the Spartans at the Counsilman/Billingsley Aquatic Center, 165.5-73.5. Indiana hasn't lost to Michigan State in a dual meet since the 1993-94 season when the Spartans defeated the Hoosiers 124-119. The meet starts at 7:00pm.
The Michigan Wolverines: Saturday, the Hoosiers will be taking on the seventh-ranked Michigan Wolverines. On the season, Michigan is 1-1 overall and the meet with the Hoosiers will be the first of the Big Ten season. Last year, Michigan defeated the Hoosiers, 152-91 in Bloomington, and then came back to the Counsilman/Billingsley Aquatic Center a month later to win their 30th Big Ten Championship. The Wolverines have won 11 of the last 12 Big Ten Titles. The meet is scheduled to start at 12:00pm.
