    Champaign, IL-The 49th-ranked men's tennis came into today's match against #2 Illinois looking for a huge upset. The Fighting Illini (20-2, 8-0 Big Ten) were too tough for the Hooisers, as Indiana lost 5-2.

    The Hoosiers (11-8, 3-4) Big Ten) began the day by dropping all three doubles matches. At No. 1, Gabriel Montilla and Rahman Smiley dropped their match to the 3rd-ranked team in the country, Oliver Freelove and Cary Franklin 8-3.

    Indiana did win two of the singles matches with their two most consistant players winning. George McGill improved his Big Ten record to a perfect 7-0 with a win over Jeff Lanski 7-6,6-2, at No. 3. Milan Rakvica, playing at the No. 4 position, extended his winning streak to 13 matches with a victory over Jakub Teply 7-5,6-7,7-5.
