BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - After knocking off a ranked player and a ranked doubles tandem at the UCF Invitational, Isade Juneau has been named Big Ten Men's Tennis Player of the Week, the conference announced. Juneau went 4-0 to win the Flight A singles bracket and finished 2-1 in doubles play on the weekend.
Head coach Randy Bloemendaal said Juneau has elevated his play this season and likes what he sees from the junior.
"Isade came up very big for the Hoosiers," said Bloemendaal. "He played the best players in the tournament and went 4-0 in singles and played very solid doubles. If he keeps improving at the same rate as the last few months, he is someone who can make an impact at the top of the lineup for us."
