March Means Basketball

FEBRUARY 18, 2020

In the words of James Naismith, while basketball was invented in Massachusetts, “basketball really had its origin in Indiana, which remains the center of the sport.” That is made clear year after year when all eyes turn to Indy, where champions are crowned in March.

This year is no different, as both the Horizon League and the Big Ten bring their men’s and women’s championships to the Circle City, alongside the NCAA Men’s Basketball Midwest Regional, seven Pacers games and the IHSAA Boys Basketball State Finals. That’s nearly 50 basketball games over a span of 25 days. The hype surrounding hoops is real in Indy. Don’t miss out on the action.

Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament

March 4-8     

The city of Indianapolis and Bankers Life Fieldhouse will host the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament for the 23rd time over March 4-8, 2020.        

Horizon League Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championship

March 9-10        

The city of Indianapolis and Indiana Farmers Coliseum will play host to the Men’s and Women’s Horizon League Basketball Championships over March 9-10, 2020.    

Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament

March 11-15  

The city of Indianapolis and Bankers Life Fieldhouse will host the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament for the 11th time over March 11-15, 2020.                

NCAA Men’s Basketball Midwest Regional

March 26-28  

The Road to the Final Four stops in Indy March 26 & 28 at Lucas Oil Stadium when the Horizon League and IUPUI host the Midwest Regional of the NCAA March Madness Tournament. 

If you still haven't had your fix:

In addition to the aforementioned tournaments, we’re wrapping up the collegiate basketball season at Hinkle Fieldhouse on March 4 with the Butler Bulldogs’ final home game of the year vs St Johns. The Indiana Pacers are at home 7 times this March from the March 10 to the 27 and we’re closing out the month with the IHSAA Boys Basketball State Championships at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on March 28. 

Planning the trip? The below might make things easier. See you in Indy!
