IU soccer gets No. 2 overall seed for NCAA tourney

An unbeaten season paid off for the Indiana men’s soccer team on Monday when the Hoosiers were awarded the No. 2 overall seed for the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

IU (15-0-5) will open play at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Armstrong Stadium against the winner of Old Dominion-North Carolina State.

Wake Forest was the No. 1 overall seed, while North Carolina was No. 3 and Louisville No. 4.

The Hoosiers were among five Big Ten teams in the field with Michigan State seeded seventh and conference regular-season champ Michigan No. 13. Unseeded were Big Ten Tournament champ Wisconsin and Maryland.

It is the 31st consecutive NCAA bid for Indiana and 42nd overall. IU’s 85 tournament victories are the most in NCAA history.


  1. What was the thought on turning to your back-up Goalkeeper for the penalty-shootout? I saw it as a “give-up” move and did not like it!

    1. Not the first time I’ve seen IU or somebody else do it. Seemed a bit strange given how good Muse has been all year, but Caulfield is actually a little taller and some keepers are better at reading PKs than others. I thought he wasn’t far off the first three, Wisconsin was just pretty perfect.
