INDIANAPOLIS — After Wright State secured the top seed and hosting honors last weekend, the bracket is set for the upcoming Horizon League Championship to be played May 23-26 at Nischwitz Stadium in Fairborn.
The top-seeded Raiders and second-seeded Illinois Chicago (UIC) Flames will receive first-round byes and will begin their tournament runs on Thursday, May 24.
Meanwhile, No. 4 Oakland and No. 5 Youngstown State kicked off the tournament on Wednesday, May 23, with Youngstown State pulling off a mild 4-1 upset. No. 3 Milwaukee vs. No. 6 Northern Kentucky play the evening game on Wednesday.
Host Wright State will play the lowest seed at 11 a.m. Thursday. So if Milwaukee defeats NKU, the Raiders would play Youngstown State. UIC would then play Milwaukee.
All games of the championship will appear on ESPN+.
