The men's basketball team and community student-athletes will be honored with a parade Tuesday, April 6, 2010, to celebrate their successes during the 2009–2010 season.

The parade will start at 6:00 p.m. at Philadelphia and Fifth streets and travel Philadelphia Street to the Indiana County Court House, where a brief ceremony will be held after the parade.

The IUP men were the first team in school history to advance to the NCAA Division II national championship game.

The parade will also honor the Indiana Area Senior High School girls' basketball team, which advanced to the PIAA state championship game, and two Indiana High School swimmers.

On behalf of the entire university, our athletics department, head coach Joe Lombardi, and his student-athletes, I want to thank you for your ongoing support of the Crimson Hawks.

Tony Atwater, Ph.D.
