Led by Indiana native head coach Paul Corsaro, UIndy is coming off its return to the NCAA tournament, earning the top seed and hosting rights to last season’s NCAA DII Midwest Regional after matching the program record in wins (26) and winning streak (18).
A host of Greyhounds are back, led by seniors Jesse Bingham, Kendrick Tchoua, and Josiah Tynes. Tchoua, who led all NCAA divisions with a .726 field-goal percentage, was named GLVC Player of the Year, D2CCA Midwest Region Player of the Year, and D2CCA Third-Team All-American. In addition, Bingham earned a place on the NABC All-America list following the season’s conclusion. UIndy returns four of its top-five scorers, including Tynes and key reserve Jarvis Walker. Tynes, a native of North Preston, Nova Scotia, started all 31 games as the Greyhound point guard, shooting 42.1 percent from 3-point range with a team-high 48 triples.
UIndy returns to Assembly Hall for the first time in nearly six years when the pair of Indiana institutions squared off on Nov. 5, 2017. IU won that matchup under first year head coach Archie Miller, 74-53.
