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.
Rabid student boosters sit in the Dawg Pound sections located at either end of Hinkle's raised playing surface. (Butler University Archives)
