There may be little mystery to hoops history, but, so you know, the Butler did it. Indeed, Hinkle Fieldhouse, the setting for the finale in "Hoosiers," is a living legend among hardwoods and an institution in sports-savvy Indianapolis. Take a photo tour, then make the Pilgrimage to Hinkle.
Arching steel girders look great, and they also allow unobstructed views from anywhere in the Fieldhouse. (Butler University Archives)
