I have loved this place for as long as I can remember. I still remember as a kid going to see regional games here. The atmosphere was unreal back then. It is a shame that Barry Collier gave high schools the boot though. It is still nice to see it in the spotlight as a part of this tournament.

Agreed Irish.

My son and I were watching Hoosiers the other day, then the NCAA's at HF.

I waited to see if he put "2 and 2 together".  Sure enough, he noticed the sight lines and said, "Hey, that's the same place."

BTW.....IMHO, every basketball player in the state of Indiana (maybe the country) needs to watch Hoosiers, or at least know the story of Milan.

I remember the memorial coliseum with over 10,000, standing room only crowds for sectionals.  Semi state games there, they were almost unavailable for most people to get into until after the  morning game's were over. Then you could get tickets from the loosing teams fans leaving after the game in the parking lot. Lol
