    Bloomington, Indiana - The Indiana University men's basketball program will hold its second annual "Haunted Hall of Hoops" on Halloween in Assembly Hall. The event begins at 3 p.m. with players passing out candy, signing autographs and posing for photos in the upstairs lobbies of the building. The team will then hold an open practice and scrimmage at 4 p.m., when the doors to the court open. Admission is free.

    "I thought last year's event was terrific and we want to continue and build this into a tradition as well," said IU Coach Tom Crean. "We hope to provide families with a fun and safe activity and give everyone a chance to get to know our players better." At halftime of the scrimmage, children are encouraged to participate in a costume parade on the Assembly Hall floor and parents may come down and take a group picture.

    "It's a fun event, but we also want our players to have the opportunity to play in a game situation in front of fans," added Crean. "We are hoping the crowd brings a ton of energy to our team that day."

    The Hoosiers will host Grace at 7 p.m., November 4 and Saint Joseph's College at 7 p.m., November 9. The season opener for IU is at 8 p.m., Friday, November 13 against Howard.
