Hoosiers compete in conference division championships at home

Hoping to have more success than the first time it played at home, the IU water polo team will host the Collegiate Water Polo Association Western Division Championships this weekend. 

The second-seeded Hoosiers (17-14, 6-1 CWPA West) will take on seventh-seeded Chatham at noon Saturday at the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center. 

The No. 17 Hoosiers defeated Chatham 15-2 earlier this season, and another win could send IU further in the tournament.

IU coach Barry King said he thinks the team will play better at home this weekend because of its previous home match. 

“We just don’t have as much experience at waking up in our own bed and coming mentally prepared to win games,” King said. 

Although the Hoosiers have beaten every team they might play this weekend except Michigan, King said that the team can’t look ahead.

“It (would) be real easy to just to kind of go through the motions and think we’re going to come out on the good side of everything,” he said. “It’s a good exercise for us to overcome the previous result and just take that game for what it is.”
