BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana marked the unofficial beginning of a new basketball season by cheering a highlight video of its outright Big Ten title last season.
At the latest installment of Hoosier Hysteria, Indiana's version of midnight madness, fans packed Assembly Hall's lower levels Friday soon after the school opened the doors at 5 p.m.
The team was to hold a light scrimmage later.
After losing four starters, this season has a totally new feel for the Hoosiers, who bring in eight freshmen and one transfer. Point guard Yogi Ferrell returns, but the team lost two NBA players in Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller and key senior contributors in Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford.
With Tom Crean at the helm for his sixth season, the Hoosiers still must live up to the expectations of one of the country's most passionate fan bases.
