Cardinals drop first conference match, winning streak ends against Toledo

Ball State sweeps Central Michigan in first home series

In Ball State’s first home series of the 2023 campaign, the Cardinals were able to bring out the brooms as they swept Central Michigan. “There's something special about this team when we're playing at home,” head coach Lacy Schurr said. “You know, this is my third season [as Ball State head coach] and there's something about being at home.

“As you come through the curtain, it's fun to come out and hear the roar of the crowd,” Casazza said. “It is kind of like being on the team, I guess it is how [the players] come out onto the floor with the crowd cheering for them. When we come down the hallway, they're not cheering for us, but you kind of get into the feeling of a big crowd and a lot of fans supporting the same team and that's kind of exciting.”

And on this day, it was the location of the high school basketball sectional championship game, and our hometown New Castle Trojans had a chance to win and continue our hopes for a state championship.
