ROAR to Detroit offers unique opportunity

Postseason play is quickly approaching for the IUPUI men’s and women’s basketball teams, and they want to take their fans with them. The Horizon League Tournament, which will take place in Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena, begins March 2.

The IUPUI athletic department is providing a bus that will travel up to Detroit for the tournament, which spans from Friday, March 2 to Tuesday, March 6. The bus will return to Indianapolis at the conclusion of the final IUPUI game each day.

The women’s team (20-7, 12-4) trail only Green Bay, who is ranked nationally, in conference standings. Their impressive play this season has been spearheaded by Danielle Lawrence, who is averaging 17.8 points per game. Freshman phenom Macee Williams has been a force for the Lady Jags in the paint, averaging 13 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

The men’s team (10-17, 7-9) sit in the middle of the pack in the Horizon, but being the underdog hasn’t been a problem in the past. Last season in the Summit League, 7-seed IUPUI upset 2-seed North Dakota State in the first round of the tournament. Seniors Aaron Brennan (12.8 ppg) and Ron Patterson (10.9 ppg) will have to keep up their solid play if the Jaguars wish to make another run like last year.
