IU Basketball: A Step-by-Step Guide
College basketball season is now well underway and the IU Hoosiers are at the top of the NCAA rankings this year, so here's your step-by-step playbook for how to enjoy an IU basketball game at Assembly Hall (you know, in case you've forgotten or something):
1.) The first thing you've got to do is score some tickets.
3.) Check out Cook Hall. If you've never been to IU's newest basketball facility, game day is the perfect time. The lobby is open to visitors and you can see some great historic IU basketball memorabilia, including a few NCAA National Championship Trophies.
4.) Head over to Assembly Hall - arriving early gives you plenty of time to enjoy that legendary basketball atmosphere.
5.) Hit up the Varsity Shop (or one of their main level displays) for some new IU gear. Here's a family friendly tip - if you're looking for kids' sizes you'll want to head straight to the main store on the lower level.
6.) Stop for a quick photo op in front of something distinctly IU, like the trophy cases or the Hall of Fame. Post your pics on all your social media accounts to make your friends jealous.
7.) Find your seats and cheer for the home team (of course!).
8.) Be sure to stand up for the fight song!
Bonus Points if you bring someone to their first-ever IU basketball game!
Young or old, the look on their face will be priceless.
So, now that you know how to enjoy a game properly, be sure to get registered to win free tickets to three upcoming games from Visit Bloomington! Each winner will receive either two or four tickets.
Tickets are still available for the holiday series games on Dec. 19, 21 and 28. Wouldn't that be an incredible stocking-stuffer? Reserve your tickets at IUHoosiers.com or call 866-IUSPORTS.
