    IU came out strong earning the doubles point right away. At No. 1, Leslie Hureau and Carolyn Chupa took down UW's Hannah Berner and Lauren Chypyha, 8-4. Indiana's Alecia Kauss and Shannon Murdy then made quick work of Wisconsin's Katie Hoch and Anastasia Tripolskaya in the No. 2 position to clinch the doubles point for the Hoosiers, 8-2.
