The Indiana University men’s basketball team will host its ninth annual Haunted Hall of Hoops on Friday at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

The event is free of charge, and doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

The team will have a full scrimmage that will begin at 7:30 p.m.

“This is something that everyone in our program looks forward to,” IU Coach Tom Crean said in a press release. “We hope Hoosier fans will come out to take in our scrimmage and help us in our preparation with our first exhibition game a few days later.”

There will be an autograph session for kids only after the parade. The players will be limited to sign just one item per child.

Everyone in attendance at the event will receive a free men’s basketball calendar poster.

IU’s season will begin November 1 with an exhibition game at home against Hope College. Its first regular season game of the year is November 11 against Kansas in Honolulu.
