IUPUI faculty, staff and student Pacers tickets are available, and if you order online from now until Jan. 9, you’ll get a free co-branded IUPUI and Pacers hat. The tickets-and-hat deal is in limited supply, so don’t wait too long. If online tickets sell out, the Student Activities Programming Board will have a backup supply.
To tip off the night, IUPUI guests are invited to a VIP pregame viewing to watch the players warm up in courtside seats, and the IUPUI choir will be singing the national anthem. In addition, one of our very own students will be recognized at halftime in front of the crowd, so make sure to come and show your support to a fellow Jaguar.
On Feb. 9, the Pacers will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers, featuring Indianapolis native and IUPUI alumnus George Hill. Hill was a part of the IUPUI basketball team from 2004 to 2008 and spoke at the 2018 commencement. He left IUPUI ranked among the program’s top 10 in rebounds, assists, free throws and steals before being drafted into the NBA. He also played for the Indiana Pacers from 2011 to 2016. It will be a packed night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so order your tickets now.
We congratulate Tracy Thatcher for her winning caption to November’s vintage IUPUI photo: “Professor Rip Van Winkle lectures IUPUI students on time management.”
