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, IHSAA State Champions will be honored. The Pacers’ regular season-ending game will include the recognition of the four girls and four boys IHSAA State Champions, continuing a Hickory Nights tradition.
