The Iowa baseball team will travel to Myrtle Beach, S.C., this weekend to play in the 13th-annual Caravelle Resort Baseball at the Beach Tournament.

Head coach Jack Dahm's squad (1-2) will face three teams on the trip, including host Coastal Carolina at 3 p.m. today in the first-ever meeting between the schools. The Chanticleers (1-2) made the NCAA Tournament last season.

Iowa will also play George Mason (1-2) on Saturday and Virginia Tech (3-1) on Feb. 26.

Left-hander Jarred Hippen will lead off the starting rotation today and will be opposed by Coastal's Tyler Herb. Hippen yielded 10 hits and 5 runs in 5 2/3 innings last week in a no-decision against Pittsburgh.

Herb is a sophomore right-hander who anchors the rotation for the Chanticleers this season. He gave up just one run and struck out 4 in 7 innings in a win over James Madison last week.

Iowa infielders Chett Zeise and Andrew Ewing have paced the Hawkeye offense thus far. Zeise is 6 for his first 12, including 3 doubles and 2 RBIs. Ewing is hitting .429 (3-of-7) with a run scored and 1 RBI.
