On Saturday, December 28th the boys basketball team will travel to Knightstown, IN to take on the Brebeuf Jesuit Braves. Both JV and Varsity will compete in the historic Hoosier’s Gym. Built in 1921, the gym is an embodiment of Indiana high school basketball and was made famous in the movie Hoosier’s. Even the Indiana Pacers pay homage to the iconic movie by wearing the old Hickory Huskers uniforms. Proceeds from those games actually helped fund some needed restoration and repairs to the nearly 100 year old gymnasium.
The restored facility continues to be enjoyed by thousands of people for private events and spotlight games like the one between the Hornets and the Braves. Gym capacity is limited to 600 seats, and we are expecting a sold out crowd for the evening of the 28th. Beech Grove will have 100 presale tickets available. These tickets can be purchased through the athletic department located in the main office of Beech Grove High School. Tickets will be sold at the door the day of the event but seats will be limited. We encourage you to buy your tickets early to ensure entry into the game. JV will begin play at 6:00 pm with Varsity to follow at 8:00 pm.
