    This Week: The Indiana swimming and diving team finishes the dual meet season on the road as they face the Purdue Boilermakers. The meet is Saturday at 4 p.m. In the Jan. 21 Speedo America Coaches' Poll, the Boilermakers were ranked 25th while Indiana received votes. Indiana's dual meet record stands at 8-3 overall and 2-1 in the Big Ten.

    Last weekend Purdue (5-2, 3-2 Big Ten) lost to Minnesota and defeated Wisconsin in a double-dual meet at the IU Natatorium. They are led by senior Vilmos Kovacs who placed first in the 100 and 200 breast and 200 and 400 IM last weekend.

    Last Week: For the first time since 1989, Indiana defeated Michigan in a dual meet. For Wolverine head coach Jon Urbanchek it was only his third conference loss in his career. His record now stands at 76-3 with all three losses to Indiana.

    The Hoosiers opened up a close meet with a sweep in the 100 free. Don Gold, Brian Stryker and Tom Wanezek took the top three spots and Indiana went up 95-74 with four events remaining. After Michigan closed the gap with a sweep in the 500 free, Tom Davis sealed the victory for Indiana with a .2 win in the 200 breast.

    Less than 24 hours later, the Hoosiers picked up their second Big Ten win in a row against Michigan State. Indiana won easily as they picked up firsts in 10 events. The final score was 160.5-82.5.

    Big Ten Championships: For the third year in a row, the Counsilman and Billingsley Aquatic Center will be the site of a Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championship. The men's Big Ten Championships will be Feb. 25-27 in Bloomington. In 1997 the men's Big Ten Championships were at Counsilman/Billingsley and last year the women's Big Ten Championships were in Bloomington.

    NCAA Diving Zone Meet: Indiana will also be the site of the NCAA Regional Diving Zone Meet. It will be held Mar. 12-13 and the top qualifiers will move on to the NCAA Championships in Indianapolis, Mar. 25-27.
