If you love basketball--and what Hoosier doesn't?--you'll want to clear your schedule on Saturday and make plans to enjoy the first-ever "Basketball Day in Indiana", a project of the IHSAA, the Indiana Pacers and Fever, and Fox Sports Indiana.
The first-ever day just for Hoosier hoops consists of five games: three marquee high school match-ups, Butler versus Cincinnati at Hinkle Fieldhouse, and the Pacers and Portland Trail Blazers at Banker's Life Fieldhouse. You can also join Fox Sports Indiana on Georgia Street downtown, where they'll be celebrating with food, games, and live pre- and post-game shows.
If you can't catch the games in person, Fox Sports Indiana has you covered. FSI has thirteen hours of continuous live coverage on deck for Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m. and going straight through until 11 p.m. And if radio is more your speed, tune your dial to 107.5 The Fan to listen in as the Butler Bulldogs take the court at 4:30.
