BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Fresh off an appearance at the 2018 MCLA National Championships powered by Under Armour where it gave top-seeded Chapman a first-round scare, Indiana has set the schedule it hopes will allow for a return visit to Salt Lake City in May.
The Hoosiers, who are the defending UMLC Division I champion, will play a 13-game regular season slate, including four UMLC East division contests.
Indiana's biggest test will come on the weekend of March 29-31 when they play defending national champion Michigan State and quarterfinalist Virginia Tech in a three-day span in Columbus, Ohio. The games will be part of the "Stick It to Stigma Shootout" in partnership with Bring Change 2 Mind.
"We are thrilled with the way the 2019 schedule worked out," said Indiana coach Pete Nelson. "We have the opportunity to play some teams that we have not played as long as I have been here, as well as add some familiar faces. Ultimately, we hope this prepares us to make another run at the MCLA National Championships."
