[INDIANA-MICHIGAN STATE: Men] Defending national champion Indiana entered the Big Ten Tournament with a 6-10-1 record and in danger of missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1986 unless it won the tournament title. But the Hoosiers swept all three games, beating regular-season champion Penn State in a shootout in the semifinals and Michigan State, 1-0, in the final.

Jamie Vollmer’s first career goal in the 66th minute and another standout performance in goal from freshman goalkeeper Colin Webb were the difference for IU, winner of a 12th Big Ten title and first since 2006.
 
“I am really proud of the team on how they performed throughout the entire Big Ten Tournament knowing what we needed to accomplish,” said IU coach Todd Yeagley. “With the stakes so high they performed at their best when the stage was the greatest. We are happy to have an opportunity to bring the Big Ten Championship home to Bloomington.”
 
Webb came up big in the first half when Michigan State fired off 10 shots, He made six saves and got help from the right post, which Blake Skameira hit in the 42nd minute.

The second half was a different story as IU came out in the first 20 minutes and outshot the Spartans 7-1.
 
The goal came when Vollmer corralled a goal kick from Zach Bennett and took it the distance down the field for a shot from 15 yards out for his first career goal at Indiana.
 
Indiana kept the Spartans at bay for the final 27 minutes, allowing just four Michigan State shots in the second half, none of which were on goal.
