IU to host “Haunted Hall of Hoops” on Sunday

Indiana basketball’s next public event will be on Sunday, according to this release from IU media relations:

The Indiana University men’s basketball team will hold its Haunted Hall of Hoops on Sunday, October 28 in Assembly Hall.  Admission is free.  Doors to Branch McCracken Court will open at 1 p.m., with the Cream and Crimson scrimmage set to begin around 2.

“We have enjoyed doing this each year and this gives our players another opportunity to play in front of the best fans in the country,” said IU Coach Tom Crean.

Following the scrimmage, children in costume will be allowed to be in a parade on the Assembly Hall floor and group pictures with the coaches and players will be taken immediately afterward.

An autograph session and games and candy for children 12 and under will conclude the day’s activities. Kids may have one item signed and it must be personalized.

Update: An IU spokesperson tells us that autographs will now be open to anyone.

    Does anyone remember how long they scrimmaged for last year?

  • IU Fan

    So teenagers and adults are not able to get autographs this year?

    What time do people suggest that I should arrive to this if I want a good seat? I doubt it will be the crowd that showed up for Hoosier Hysteria, but I’m sure plenty of people will attend and I will need to get there early.

    We went to this 2 yrs ago and about half the seats were filled. So after attending Hoosier Hysteria I would think the crowd might be just as big! But the short notice might make a difference.

    I have never been to this event, but I can’t imagine lines like Hoosier Hysteria. I can’t see people camping out for days to get into this, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see people in the balconies.

    I hope they know they will have 23,000 again. . .

    Hard to predict based on how things are going this year, but this usually only fills the main levels at 50%. Unlike Hoosier Hysteria, this is only a scrimmage and not that many of the fair weather fans are into that as much (even during Hoosier Hysteria, many started to trickle out once the scrimmage started). This should be a great opportunity for those actually interested to see how the players are doing.

    I repeatedly looked around and said “why… I don’t get it.. Why is everyone leaving already? The scrimmage is what I came to see!”

    I really would like to take my 8y/o daughter to the event but I am very leery because we could not get in H.H. I don’t want to disappoint her 2xs in two weeks. Plus, the long drive cost me time and gas money. I am stuck in a dilemma.
