This college basketball season saw the first of two (and possibly more) Crossroads Classics.
The first Classic, played in December at Conseco (now Bankers Life) Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, featured a double-header in which Indiana defeated Notre Dame and Butler edged out Purdue. At next season’s Classic (also at Bankers Life), Purdue will play Notre Dame and Indiana will play Butler.
Indiana athletic director Fred Glass said the event would be a “great showcase for the state of Indiana” featuring “the four premier programs in the state.”
Fans of Indiana’s six other Division I teams might take exception to that statement.
