IU Athletics announced on Monday that Hoosier Hysteria, the tip-off for the Indiana men’s and women’s basketball programs, is scheduled for Friday, October 7 — the day before the homecoming football game versus Michigan. A release clarified that Hoosier Hysteria will not conflict with the annual Homecoming Parade on the same day.
Men’s basketball head coach Mike Woodson and women’s basketball head coach Teri Moren will unveil their respective squads in the event that, last year, featured 3-point, skills and dunk contests.
"I know I was overwhelmed by the love shown to me by Hoosier Nation last year, and I can assure you we will have a fun evening," Woodson said. "Our players and staff are excited about what's ahead, and we can't wait to spend time with the best fanbase in the country for the first time with our group."
Hoosier Hysteria will have free admission and open seating in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
