Highlighting the lineup is the debut of the highly-anticipated Blueline Pictures documentary “Worth the Wait,” which chronicles IU Men’s Soccer’s eight-overtime win over Duke in 1982 to earn the program’s first-ever NCAA Championship.

While the film is centered on that seminal event, it also details Coach Jerry Yeagley’s journey in building the program from an intramural sport to varsity status.

It offers perspectives from Yeagley and many of the other influential individuals who helped build the program from the ground floor, and those who have subsequently maintained that level of excellence since Yeagley’s retirement. The film will air Tuesday at 5 p.m. ET.
