[MEN'S COLLEGE CUP: Indiana] Todd Yeagley, who played for Indiana in the NCAA Division I final four in all four years as a player under his father, Jerry Yeagley, has gotten the Hoosiers back to the College Cup for the first time since 2004 when they won their fourth national title. The Hoosiers, winners at No. 1 seed Notre Dame and defending champion North Carolina in the last two rounds, take on Creighton in Friday's semifinals (TV: ESPNU, 7:30 pm ET).

THREE STARS:
Eriq Zavaleta, a unanimous pick as Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, scored the game-winning goal in the wins over Notre Dame and North Carolina to give him 18 goals and seven game-winning goals.

Junior A.J. Corrado's 12 assists are the most by an Indiana player since Lee Nguyen recorded 12 in 2005. Corrado was the only other Hoosier to join Zavaleta on the All-Big Ten first team.

Junior Nikita Kotlov's seven career NCAA Tournament goals are tied for second most by a Hoosier, tied with Pat Noonan (1999-02). He scored three goals against Xavier in the second round.

NUMBERS GAME:
The Hoosiers have won a record 81 NCAA Tournament games.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING:
"I'm just trying to tell them to enjoy it. I know that when I was a player, that was something my coach said was to take it all in, enjoy it, play loose. You're here because you put a body of work together. Now, it's just, leave everything you've got out there on this field and enjoy the experience." -- Yeagley
