HOOSIERS TO PLAY INDIANAPOLIS IN MEN’S BASKETBALL EXHIBITION GAME

The Indiana University men’s basketball team has completed its 2011-12 schedule with the addition of an exhibition game on Saturday, November 5 at Assembly Hall against the University of Indianapolis.  Tip-off will be at 7 p.m. and the game will be streamed on Bigtennetwork.com.

“Our goal in scheduling our exhibition games is to find programs that will best prepare us for the upcoming season, “ said IU Coach Tom Crean. “Having the opportunity to schedule a team with strong local ties is an added bonus.  Stan (Gouard) and his staff have done a great job in a short period of time, which is evident by their win at Tennessee last year.”

The Greyhounds were 19-9 last season and return three starters. The two teams last met in an exhibition game on November 10, 2006 in Assembly Hall with the Hoosiers taking an 83-46 triumph.  A year earlier to the day, IU also defeated the Greyhounds, 96-49 in Bloomington in another preseason exhibition.

The Hoosiers will open the season on Friday, November 11 and will host Stony Brook at 7 p.m.

  1. Well, I guess I got what I asked for–a basketball post. Let us not forget that the U. of Indianapolis actually BEAT Tennessee at Knoxville last preseason. Stan Gouard played for Bruce Pearl at USI, so Bruce thought he’d throw him a bone and play the Greyhounds (pun intended) and got way more than he bargained for.

  2. U of I (formerly Indiana Central) was coached by the legendary Angus Nicoson who, from 1947 to 1977, posted 3 losing seasons. They have been, and should continue to be, a well respected program for decades.

  3. I love to see all these Indiana teams. We should schedule them all. Indianapolis, Butler, Evansville, Indiana State, Ball State, IUPUI.. Bring them on 🙂

    95% of them are Indiana fans anyway.

    GO HOOSIERS!
