    Bloomington, Indiana - The Indiana University men's basketball team held its second public scrimmage a the first ever Haunted Hall of Hoops at Assembly Hall, Halloween night.

    Trick or treaters received candy from the players and a team picture with autographs to begin the night. The team scrimmaged for 32 minutes and contests for the kids and families were held at each media time out.

    The highlight of the evening was when Coach Tom Crean led out 88 children at halftime for a costume parade and parents were invited to take pictures of their children on Branch McCracken Court with the players and staff.

    "We have thrown a lot of things at them this week, so tonight their heads were swimming a little bit but we played through it," said Crean. "I wanted it to be a night to be on the court, under the lights with referees. But tonight was more about interacting with the fans and having a good time and giving back to our fans."
