    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The No. 41 Indiana women's tennis team fell on the road in Big Ten play at No. 49 Ohio State on Friday afternoon, 7-0.

    In doubles, it took two match tiebreakers for Ohio State (15-7, 5-3) to earn the doubles point. IU's (16-7, 4-4) Sophie Garre and Shannon Murdy and OSU's Sandy Niehaus and Gabriella De Santis were knotted at 7-7 at No. 2 before the Buckeye duo won the tiebreaker 7-4 to take the match.

    At No. 3, Indiana's Kayla Fujimoto and Alecia Kauss just fell short in a tiebreaker as well to Ohio State's 75th-ranked doubles tandem of Ferny Angeles Paz and Miho Kowase, 8-7 (2).

    The Buckeyes rode that momentum in singles taking every match to earn the sweep over Indiana.

    IU next heads to Penn State to take on the Nittany Lions on Sunday at 10 a.m. ET.

    No. 49 Ohio State 7, No. 41 Indiana 0
