April 1, 2007
EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Indiana women's tennis team remained undefeated in Big Ten play with a 5-2 victory over Michigan State on Sunday, April 1, 2007.
After dropping the doubles point to Michigan State (11-6, 1-3 Big Ten), Indiana (14-3, 4-0 Big Ten) won five of the six singles matches to clinch the win.
"We played indoors, which gave Michigan State an advantage because they hit big," head coach Lin Loring said. "We won the close singles matches and that made the difference. Lindsey's (Stuckey) match was huge, because it was the deciding match that won for us. Michigan State played well in doubles and pushed us in singles, so we keep our streak of wins over Michigan State alive for another year."
