So I was waiting to write any basketball posts until we officially beat Purdue (our biggest rivals) and we did on Sunday so now I can talk about it! Men's basketball games here are a lot of fun; maybe it's because we're really good this year (regular season record 24-7) or we just have a lot of school spirit, but IU fans are the greatest!! They're so loud and crazy every game. Whether we are playing Kentucky or Setson, Assembly Hall is always super LOUD!! Really, I can not even describe how loud it is, you just need to experience it for yourself. Let's just say, you would not want to be the other team!
One of the best decisions I made was purchasing student tickets at the beginning of the year. They let you pick a group of eight people that you want to sit with and then you sit with those people at every game. Your seats change for every game, but you're always with your group. And yeah, sometimes you might get stuck in the balcony, but South Court and General Admission make up for it! The student section is referred to as the Crimson Guard (we even have special shirts) and everyone is so passionate and excited at the games. People dress up crazy, make signs and cheer loudly! Below are just some pictures I have taken of the student section. The first is when we had a whiteout. it looked so cool when everyone was in white. The second is of the General Admission student section. In other posts, I will talk about some of my favorite YouTube videos about IU Basketball (and believe me there are a lot).
