Indiana basketball has been busy on the recruiting end, with a pair of 2022 commits already on the books and a third possibly coming next week.

But more than that, it appears that the annual Hoosier Hysteria event will return, after being done virtually last fall, thanks to the pandemic. The chance for fans to stroll back into Assembly Hall is a popular event in Bloomington, and has always been a way for the program to collectively say “Welcome Back!”

In an announcement made on Thursday, the program said that the opening practice that officially tips off the season, along with all the fanfare, will be held on Saturday, October 2 at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

It was announced earlier this week that Indiana head coach Mike Woodson’s first season at the helm of his alma mater will open Nov. 9 at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, against Eastern Michigan.
