INDIANA HOOSIERS

November 22, 2016
MEN'S COLLEGE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Indiana Hoosiers' defender Grant Lillard


Coach Todd Yeagley has made certain to organize the Indiana Hoosiersí back line as the team finished in second place in the Big Ten Conference standings and has advanced to the third round of the NCAA Menís Championship.

No surprise, since Yeagley played seven seasons as a defender and holding midfielder in MLS with the Columbus Crew. And the Hoosiers have relied on junior Grant Lillard to lead the defense the last three seasons. Lillard, the Chicagoland Soccer News Men's College Player of the Week for the week ending Nov. 20, made key plays as the Hoosiers took a 1-0 win over Akron in a second-round match.

The Hoosiers have surrendered 14 goals and totaled 11 shutouts in 20 games this season. Things have not always gone smoothly. Lillard was red-carded in the first half of a 0-0 draw with Stanford and Indiana lost a 4-0 decision to Notre Dame early in the season. But Indiana has recovered, upping its unbeaten streak to 10 games going into a third-round match against Virginia Tech Sunday.
