The University of Delaware men’s soccer team hits the field Thursday night for an NCAA tournament contest.
The Blue Hens visit Providence for an opening round game at 7 pm.
Delaware is unranked and making its first NCAA tourney appearance since 2013. UD is 1-4 all-time in tournament games. The Hens only win came back in 2011.
Providence is ranked 22nd nationally and making its ninth trip to NCAA post-season.
The winner of the UD-Providence contest gets top-ranked Maryland in round two Sunday afternoon.
