Russ Rose’s Nittany Lions dominated Indiana in all facets of the game in one of their more complete performances of the season. Kendall Beerman and Kamryn Malloy paced the Hoosiers with seven kills apiece. Detering did a little bit of everything with 17 assists, a match-high six digs, three blocks, and two service aces.
