IU Athletics to rebroadcast classic sporting events as quarantine entertainment


IU Athletics is re-airing IU men’s basketball games and will later add football and women’s basketball in its new “Hoosier Classic” series. 

With COVID-19 canceling sports for the remainder of the semester, IU Athletics is bringing sports back to the community.

Hoosier basketball games from the Steve Alford and Calbert Cheaney eras were uploaded Thursday on the IU Hoosiers All Access Facebook page. Over the coming weeks, IU athletics will replay some of the most memorable IU football and women’s basketball games in the programs' histories. 

All broadcasts air at 7 p.m. every day and will not include commercials or halftime breaks. Viewers can watch the games using Facebook's Watch Party feature, which allows them to leave comments and interact with other spectators throughout the broadcast. 

Thursday’s broadcast featured IU’s 80-63 victory against the undefeated University of Florida on Dec. 30, 1984. The guard duo of Alford and Dan Dakich led the floor with Alford scoring 27 and Dakich putting up 23. 

IU Athletics will rebroadcast the 1987 matchup between IU and Michigan State on Monday. 

Scheduling announcements will come at a later date on and the social media accounts of the respective programs.
