April 29, 2011
MADISON, Wis. - Indiana men's tennis moved to the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament by defeating Purdue 4-2. The Hoosiers got key wins from All-Big Ten honorees Jeremy Langer and Josh MacTaggart to seal the deal. The win is the 23rd of the season for IU, the most ever in a single season for a Hoosier team.
After the Hoosiers quickly took the doubles point with wins at numbers one and two, freshman Dimitrije Tasic took down J.F. Engelbrecht at number six by a 6-2, 6-1 score. The Boilers then battled back with wins at four and five to tie the score at 2-2.
That was when Langer and MacTaggart answered the call. Langer closed out his three-setter 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 over Mark Kovacs, and then MacTaggart sealed the win with a 6-4, 7-6 win over Krisztian Krocsko.
The Hoosiers return to action at the Big Ten Men's Tennis Tournament on Saturday, squaring off with Minnesota in the semifinal. For complete coverage of IU men's tennis, stay tuned to IUHoosiers.com.
