The annual tipoff to the Indiana basketball season, Hoosier Hysteria, takes place this Saturday at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

Indiana released additional details on this year’s Hysteria, the first of the Archie Miller era, earlier this afternoon. The complete release is available below:

BLOOMINGTON, Indiana – The Indiana men’s and women’s basketball teams will be available to sign autographs in the four corners of the main concourse of Simon Skjodt Assembly for a half hour following this Saturday’s Hoosier Hysteria presented by Smithville Fiber. Fans will be able to pick up a poster for each team when they enter Assembly Hall. The players will only sign one item per person (basketballs purchased that day in the varsity shop may be signed in lieu of the poster).

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the event scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

Clear Bag Policy In Effect

As has been the case during the 2017 football season, a clear bag policy is in effect for all fans who attend events at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall beginning with Hoosier Hysteria. Each patron is allowed one (1) clear bag, either one-gallon Ziploc or the 12” x 6” x 12” clear bag, plus a small clutch. All clear bags, or small clutch, will be searched upon entry. In addition, fans will be required to enter through a metal detector.

Questions regarding the new policy are located here: http://iuhoosiers.com/sports/2017/8/14/bag-policy-faq.aspx?id=1484

    I will chant your name and hope you commit on the spot!

    Not sure about Brooks, but our 2018 class will attend along with some younger recruits (2019 & 2020 maybe?).

    This is going to be a very well attended HH. I hope it sets some kind of record for attendance.

    I’m planing on bringing my son to his first Hoosier Hysteria this year. I haven’t been since I was in school (back when it was called Midnight Madness). How early should we plan on getting there to make sure we get a decent seat? Thanks for any help/advice!

    Saw a quote from Romeo that he would like he and Garland to play on the same team. Let’s make it happen!!

    For what it’s worth…Romeo has changed his visit Saturday
    from unofficial to official.
