Day 1 of the 64 years/teams of IU Basketball Tournament

Vote for the team you think would win

Each day (Mon-Fri) will have 4 games and the polls will be open for 48 hours. I will try to post the new day’s games at noon EST.

HSN members are encouraged to discuss memories of the teams involved in today’s matchup, post links to videos/games, etc. before voting on that day’s matchups.

The bracket was seeded sequentially by year (2020-1957) from most recent to oldest.

In the only first round game pitting back to back years against each other, the 1989 Hoosiers led by Jay Edwards take on the defending NCAA champion 1988 team led by Dean Garrett and Keith Smart. Brian Sloan was Sloan Screen 45’ing opponents for both squads.

In the first game, the 2020 team is shocked when little used bench player Clarence Doninger comes off the bench to hit seven 3 pointers against the pack line defense in a dominating win.

In the second game, the '88-'89 team prevails as Jay Edwards is unable to stop Jay Edwards, who scores 37 points, while holding Edwards to 13.

Jay Edwards was a bad man at IU. Too bad we didn't get 4 years out of him.

One of my favorite Hoosiers...imaging him draining 3's for us this year. Would make virtually any Hoosier team better adding him to the starting lineup.

3 points shooting of 53.6% on 4.8 attempts per game one year and 44.8% on 5.3 attempts the next. Wow!

Indeed, but as Pacers scout and former IU player Courtney Witte once told a room of us, Jay couldn't guard a sidewalk. 😂😂😂

Well...neither could Alford but both those guys probably played as many minutes as any starting guard in our team history lol.
