Indianapolis has a 3-1 record before the Great Lakes Valley Conference opener Saturday at Northern Kentucky University. Indianapolis knocked off Tennessee in an exhibition game on Nov. 8 with a 79-64 score.

The Tornado started the season against two other Great Lakes Valley Conference foes, Kentucky Wesleyan College and Southern Indiana University. King was overtaken 82-77 in the opener at Kentucky Wesleyan on Nov. 13 and a day later lost a 78-70 contest at Southern Indiana.
