The men’s basketball team from Haskell Indian Nations University will make a trip to Florida during the 2021-22 season. The team’s schedule includes a game in the Tampa area Jan. 7, 2022, against Florida College in Temple Terrace. The time has not been announced. The next day Haskell will be in West Palm Beach to face Keiser University at 5 p.m.

Haskell’s schedule also includes a trip in February to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Haskell, from Lawrence, Kansas, last played in the 2019-20 season and finished with a 16-14 record. The team did not play last season due to the pandemic.

Earlier this year, Haskell’s athletics department praised the help it received from the Seminole Tribe for the purchase of a laptop to improve its streaming of games. Haskell athletics posted this message on Facebook on Jan. 3:

Haskell Athletics would like to take the time to thank Haskell Alumni and Seminole Tribe of Florida member Jason Billie, Seminole Tribe of Florida Council Representative, Christopher Osceola and Executive Assistant to Councilman Christopher Osceola, Thomasine Motlow for their support of our athletics department. Through their support and the councilman’s donation our Sports Information Department was given the opportunity to purchase a new laptop to be utilized for web streaming and media purposes. With the new addition of the HP – Spectre x360 2-in-1 15.6″ 4K UHD Touch-Screen Laptop, Haskell Athletics will be able to provide an enhanced view of our home competitions without interruptions due to equipment errors like we have seen in the past. We cannot thank Jason Billie, Thomasine Motlow and the councilman, Christopher Osceola, enough for their kind gesture and we hope to continue to develop this relationship. #onwardhaskell #haskellathletics
