METRO ROUNDUP: ISU basketball schedules released

The Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State men’s and women’s Missouri Valley Conference basketball schedules were unveiled on Thursday.

The ISU men will open conference play on Sunday, Dec. 30 as it hosts Illinois State. The ISU women open conference play on Jan. 4 against Bradley at Hulman Center.

The biggest test for the ISU men will come right out of the gate. After it plays host to Illinois State, the Sycamores travel to Northern Iowa and Creighton. The Bluejays are widely assumed to be the Missouri Valley Conference favorite and the Panthers are perceived to be a team capable of finishing in the top half of the league.

The triple-whammy begins just five days after ISU’s last game in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii.

After that stretch, ISU plays three of four at home. It also plays five home games in February, including BracketBusters.

The most arduous stretch for the women will come from Jan. 11 to Feb. 3. During that stretch, the ISU women will play five out of seven games on the road. From Feb. 8-March 3, the women play five out of seven at home.

The nonconference schedules for both programs had been released previously.
