IU offers enticement to attend ‘Night of the Living Red’

As if seeing Cody Zeller in Assembly Hall was not enough, IU has added additional enticement to attend “Night of the Living Red” a week from today. Check out paragraph five in this release:

NIGHT OF THE LIVING RED SET FOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29

The Indiana University men’s basketball team will hold “Night of the Living Red” a Halloween themed free event for Hoosier fans of all ages Friday, October 29 in Assembly Hall.

The night will include an opportunity to visit Cook Hall, a band and tailgate area outside of the south lobby, Trick or Treating and games for kids, a Cream and Crimson Scrimmage, costume parade and an autograph session with the IU men’s basketball team.

“Each year we try and bring something different to the table,” said IU Coach Tom Crean.It’s a fun event, but we also want our players to have the opportunity to play in a game situation in front of fans and with referees.  We are hopeful the crowd brings a ton of energy to the event.”

Cook Hall and the Pfau-Shine Legacy Court will be open until 7 p.m. Doors to Assembly Hall will open at 6:30 p.m., with trick or treating and games in the concourse beginning at 7 p.m.  An outside tailgate area with music in between Assembly Hall and Cook Hall will be open from 7 p.m. until tip-off.  The Cream and Crimson scrimmage begin around 8 p.m.

Fans 18 and over will receive a voucher for two free balcony tickets for one of four games taking place during holiday breaks (11/23 vs. NC Central, 11/26 vs. Northwestern State, 12/17 vs. SIU Edwardsville, or 12/19 against South Carolina State).

Student season ticket holders will receive their 2010-11 Crimson Guard official t-shirt and one lucky student will have the opportunity to win $10,000 by making five of 10 three pointers in 25 seconds.

A post-game autograph session with the players will take place as all kids 11 and under will receive autograph cards for each player.  Kids also will have the opportunity compete in games on the Assembly Hall floor at each timeout.

The Hoosiers will play two exhibition games starting with Franklin on November 3, Ferris State on November 8.  Both games will start at 7 p.m.  The regular season will open Friday, November 12, at 6:30 p.m. against Florida Gulf Coast.

  1. IU is a great school, and I really like their basketball team and football team, although I think their football team needs a new coach.
    I really don’t like Remorrhoid-slash-the ghost of Korman; he tries to wind me up and he is a jerk.

  2. Awesome. Awesome. I am so happy to wake up to this.

    Dustin and Hugh are not only doing a great job piloting the new regime, but they have a sense of humor.

    I need some fantasy advice: would you start Chris Ivory or Ryan Torain this weekend? Conventional wisdom says the Bears will be mad and plug up the run. Conventional wisdom also says that Brees will throw 40 times vs. Cleveland and won’t hand it off. But I don’t know. Still hesitant.

    Have you ever played fantasy EPL soccer? It’s fun. I need a big game from the two Tims of Everton: Howard and Cahill.

  3. Husky-

    Where do you play fantasy premier league at? I go with Yahoo!Eurosport, seems to be alright. As for goalies, as much as I love Timmy, I had to go with Joe Hart from my own Man City.

    Cheers.

  4. scb-

    I actually play it on the official EPL website. They seem to have a pretty good system. Not a lot of willy-nilly points, such as “shots on target” or “successful crosses”. How is the yahoo version?

    I have Milner in my lineup for tomorrow. I am glad that Man City beat Chelsea, who I hate. Are you a Man City fan, or are you from there, or both?

  5. Wow. 37-14 in the 3rd. How depwessing. Wooshington Wooskies weally getting waxed by wittle wild kitties tonight. Poor Wooskies must not be feline well. Better not watch the Wooskies anymore. I think I’ll play fantasy ping pong against Lord of the Clappers from Ireland before I go to bed.
