Men’s Basketball Ready for Season

The Trolls are set to open their 2018-19 season under first year coach Jason Hawkins. The team, which returns six players from last year’s varsity roster to the 16-man squad, makes their season debut on October 26-27 at the Indiana University-Kokomo Classic. Trinity faces Midway University (KY) in their opening game and play IU-Kokomo the following day.   

The Trolls will play in one more non-conference game at Lincoln Christian University (Lincoln, Illinois) on October 30 before their home opener against Silver Lake College (Manitowoc, Wisconsin) at 3 pm on November 3 as a part of Fall Fest Weekend.  That game is the first of three weekends in a row at home for the Trolls. On November 9-10 they host their annual Troll Classic and the next weekend they are in conference play against Robert Morris University.

Also in the non-conference schedule is a game at Marian University (Indianapolis, Indiana) on November 6, a Thanksgiving Classic at Saint Xavier University on November 23-24, a home contest with Indiana University-Northwest (Gary, Indiana) on January 2, and an exhibition game against Chicago State University on December 6.

The conference schedule consists of 20 games in which they face seven of the 13 CCAC opponents twice and the other six teams once. The Trolls open that CCAC play on November 14 at home against Governors State University at 7:30 pm. By the semester break they will have completed seven conference games.  The CCAC schedule begins again on January 5 and the Trolls will play six home games, including five Saturday games, in the final two months of the season. The team concludes their regular season on February 16 and the CCAC Tournament runs from February 19-23.

All home contests will be web streamed with live stats and video at https://portal.stretchinternet.com/tcc/.  A complete varsity schedule, as well as a schedule for the junior varsity team, can be found on the athletics web site at http://athletics.trnty.edu/index.php/mbball-schedule
