The Indiana Pacers have been a fixture on the Indiana sports scene since 1967. One of the National Basketball Association's premier franchises, the Pacers have reached NBA Playoffs and Eastern Conference Finals many times and were in the NBA Finals in 2000. Home games are played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, regarded by many as the finest basketball arena in the world.
The Pacers also will wear new white Hickory jerseys. Nike Classic Editions are a modern take on the white uniforms of Hickory High as worn in the 1987 cinematic classic Hoosiers.
In the tradition of Hickory Night, the Pacers will also recognize legendary Indiana teams, coaches, players, and cities.
During tonight's game, Paul D. “Tony” Hinkle will be honored. A native of Logansport, the revered Hinkle, a member of the Naismith Hall of Fame, coached basketball, football and baseball at Butler for nearly a half century while also serving as athletic director. The Hinkle “coaching tree” of former players and assistants remains a presence throughout Indiana and Butler’s iconic fieldhouse is named in his honor.
We look forward to hosting you.
