Tom Crean has kicked off a few new traditions since landing at Indiana and the Haunted Hall of Hoops is a fan favorite. Young Hoosier fans can parade around the court in costume, collect candy, and enjoy games and activities. For fans of all ages, Indiana will hold an open practice which will be followed by a team scrimmage. Finally, kids in costume will be able to take a group picture with the team and coach Crean.
