Hoosiers to honor seniors on Senior Night


Facing a lower-ranked conference opponent for the first time this season, the No. 33 IU wrestling team will look to close out its home wrestling season with a win against No. 54 Michigan State at 7 p.m. Friday in University Gym.

“It will be a good duel,” IU coach Duane Goldman said. “I think both teams are pretty evenly matched on paper.”

As it is the last home match of the season, a Senior Night ceremony will take place before the match. Six seniors will be honored, including five of the team’s regular starters.

However, one of them, senior Kurt Kinser at 149 pounds, has been nursing an injury this week and may be unable to go Friday. His possible replacement has yet to be determined.

“Right now we’re just motivated trying to get our first win,” Goldman said. “We’re pretty motivated regardless (of Senior Night).”
