The MIAA Champion Scots host the semi-final and finals of the MIAA Tournament Friday and Saturday, Nov. 5-6. The outcome of the tournament determines which team receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs through a combination of regular season and conference tournament results.
Second-seeded Calvin (23-8, 14-2 MIAA) faces No. 3 seed Kalamazoo (18-10, 11-5 MIAA) at 5:30 p.m., Friday evening. Alma faces No. 4 seed Hope (19-13, 8-8 MIAA) at 7:30 p.m.
The Maroon and Cream have won both conference meetings this season against Hope, defeating the Flying Dutch in three games the first match (31-29, 30-23, 30-17) and taking the match to four games in the second match-up (29-31, 30-21, 30-18, 30-24). The teams also faced off in a non-league contest on Oct. 30 with the Scots winning handily in three games.
