In the middle of the third set, all other singles matches had finished and the team score was tied at 3-3. With the match riding on Klousia's final set, he captured the set, 6-3, to give the Big Red a Big Ten win in East Lansing.

The Glendale High School graduate was the only Husker to win a match at the Big Ten Tournament, defeating Wisconsin's Chema Carranza, 6-3, 7-5, on April 26.
