A business trip back to Indianapolis allowed me a chance to stop by my alma mater, and to spend a little time touring one of the country's top college basketball venues. While I'd been to a few Butler men's b-ball games since Hinkle's 2013 renovation, I hadn't had a chance to examine the exhibit stations or really soak in the... More

Home of the state finals in the movie Hoosiers and also the butler Bulldogs basketball team. An old school field house that every Indiana resident and Indiana high school basketball fan should visit at least once.

Home of the Butler Bull dogs and State High basketball tournament. One of few historic field houses still around. To go there is to feel taken back in history when people congregated together in true spirit of healthy competition. Great to see history preserved.

What a great place to watch college basketball. Get there early and enjoy the historical plaques around the venue. I was happy to find one I attended--the USA volleyball team winning the Gold at the 1987 Pan Am games.

My family stopped by on our recent trip to Indy. You will never forget steeping onto that court for the first time. It is amazing. There isn't much to do other than explore, but it was a perfect bit of nostaglia. Stop by and feel the magic.

Have seen multiple games in here - it's like a high school gym with bleachers, no air conditioning, etc. - can get quite hot. Cool to see if you're a fan of the movie Hoosiers or Indiana traditional basketball

Hinkle Fieldhouse is not only home to my Butler Bulldogs, but also the site of the final game in the movie Hoosiers. College hoops fans should definitely make the pilgrimage to see the fieldhouse. Recent renovations did not disrupt its charm!
