“So many great stories took place here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

If I had the time, I would come here often to catch a basket ball game. I even attended a high school graduation here that seemed so special because of the location.

“The home of Basketball history - need I say more?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Hinkle Fieldhouse is THE place where basketball made its home in Indiana. You don't have to know the team that's playing, just go to a game and the crowds will make it seem like you're back in the '50s.

“Possibly the most classic basketball arena on the planet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Hinkle Fieldhouse is one of the most storied and fabulous basketball arenas ever built. Famous for so many classic Indiana High School basketball championships - remember Hoosiers?

And more recently has obtained more national fame with the success of the Butler Bulldogs. Hinkle is on the Butler campus.
It's a great place to watch a high school or college basketball game - so go sometime.

“Historical”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I am a Purdue guy so keep that in mind. Hinkle is a sports lovers dream... if you are not that type of person you wounder why a back to back NCAA finals team has such a old place to play.
