Have Fun at the Big Ten Basketball Tournament

If you know even just a little bit about Indiana, you know that basketball is a BIG DEAL here in the Hoosier state. Not only is the movie Hoosiers all about Indiana High School Basketball, but Indiana is also home to 9 of the 11 largest high school gymnasiums in the country (Wikipedia)! Although Indiana is known for high school basketball, Larry Bird and the Pacers, we’re also Big Ten fans.
