on Sept. 21 and first upset of the year, Thursday’s match marked a
turning point in the season.
Brushing off an away defeat to Michigan State last week, the Hoosiers
entered the match ready to start a winning streak. In a team meeting

sixth minute and left the game, Freitag said. Freshman Tommy Meyer took
his place for the remaining minutes.
