  • 10/12/2016 5:47 pm in

Indiana’s practice this Saturday will be aired live on BTN from noon E.T. until 1 p.m. ET, the network announced today.

The program, titled “Inside Indiana Basketball,” will air following BTN Tailgate, which will broadcast live from Bloomington beginning at 10:30 a.m. ET. Later in the day, Indiana football will host No. 10 Nebraska, which will also air on BTN at 3:30 p.m. ET.

According to a release from BTN, analyst Jon Crispin and Tom Crean will both wear microphones and discuss drills, Indiana’s 2016-2017 team and also a team scrimmage.

Indiana began practice on September 30 and will tip off the regular season on November 11 against Kansas in Honolulu.

“Inside Indiana Basketball” will be also be available via the web on BTN2Go.

  • Awesome to be relevant enough to have a live national broadcast of a practice. Just curious, will there be a UCLA live or Illinois live equivalent? Good message to the receuits.

    Tailgate..B-ball practice and live football game….Smart programming decision by the BTN!

    It doesn’t show up on my guide, but recorded that slot anyway. I have Louisville feed BTN, hope I still get to watch the practice.

  • Not showing up in my DirecTV listings either, and I have too many slots to randomly record. Or, rather, I suppose I could, but what a pain. Either it’ll populate before Saturday, or I’ll just stream it online.

    yes, it doesn’t show up on my guide either.. But I hit record anyway. It says college football, right after the Indiana tailgate show. they could change that though.. they probably won’t.. I have Direct TV.. and that guide is wrong sometimes..

    Yaaaaay … Whatever the reasoning, I’m glad to see it. Hopefully they do the same with the games that are currently scheduled to only stream be on BTN2go. One can only hope.

    The IU vs. Nebraska game is being broadcast on ABC/ESPN2…I don’t think BTN is showing that game (I think they are showing Northwestern at Michigan State in the 3:30 time slot).

  • PS IU

    Great. It will be nice to watch the incoming new players practice and get to know these new players. Cannot wait.
