For the first time during the B1G basketball season, the conference allowed fans to attend games. The league is permitting 8,000 to attend the B1G Tournament, held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Indiana fans are making their presence felt, too.

In the second half of Thursday night’s second round matchup between Indiana and Rutgers, the Hoosier faithful were getting loud after some huge plays from IU. So much so, they were clearly audible during Big Ten Network’s broadcast.

Below are some clips, and you can clearly hear the fans making an impact on the game.

After limiting attendance to close family during the football and basketball seasons, it’s great to see fans back in a sporting venue and cheering on their favorite team. It’s also beneficial for Indiana in this situation, since the tournament is held so close to campus.

Regardless of outcome, it’s very refreshing to hear the fans have an impact on a game.
