Those of you who missed out on Hoosier Hysteria last Friday will have a chance to redeem yourselves on Saturday. Immediately following the football game against Northwestern, Tom Crean will hold a 30-minute scrimmage that will be open to the public:

Bloomington, Indiana – The Indiana University men’s basketball team will give the University’s Homecoming visitors a chance to check out the Hoosiers in action Saturday, approximately 30 minutes following the end of the football game against Northwestern, in Assembly Hall. The IU football team kicks off against the Wildcats at Noon and the scrimmage should start around 4 p.m.

“I believe this is something we would like to do each year if Homecoming falls on the right weekend and practice has started,” said Coach Tom Crean. “We really appreciated the opportunity to play in front of our great fans at Hoosier Hysteria and we want to take every opportunity to give our guys the experience of playing in Assembly Hall in front of the most loyal fans in the country.”

The Hoosiers also are planning an activity called the “Haunted Hall of Hoops” on Friday, October 31. Details on the event are being finalized.

Translation for Crean’s quote: We’re really inexperienced and need to get used to playing in front of big crowds. Probably not a bad idea. I like this Crean guy already.
