The Indiana University Athletics Department will hold its annual Hoosier Hysteria on Friday, October 12 in Assembly Hall. The event will feature the IU men’s and women’s basketball teams and the IU volleyball program.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the cost of admission is $5 (event night or in advance) or two canned goods (event night) to benefit the Hoosier Hills Food Bank.
IU men’s and women’s basketball players will be available for autographs from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Autograph cards will be provided as student-athletes are not allowed to sign any outside items.
The action will begin when the Hoosier volleyball squad hosts Michigan State in a 7 p.m. match.
At the conclusion of the match, the floor will be prepared for basketball and women’s coach Felisha Legette-Jack will address the crowd as her team warms up. The squad will hold a three-point shooting contest with the winner taking on the men’s champion.
The men’s team will follow and coach Kelvin Sampson will welcome the Hoosier faithful as his team will go through warm up drills and then complete its three-point shooting contest. Following the men’s and women’s three-point shootout, the Hoosiers will hold a slam dunk contest which will be followed by a brief scrimmage.
