Fakten

  • Located on the Butler University campus, Hinkle Fieldhouse was the largest basketball arena in the nation for 20 years after completion of construction.
  • Recent renovations have reduced capacity from 15,000 spectators to just over 11,000.
  • It is one of only six 1920s era collegiate arenas still in use.
  • The building features a barrel-vaulted roof, maximizing the number of seats in the arena.
  • The new Bankers Life Fieldhouse, home of the NBA's Indiana Pacers, was designed in a similar style.
  • The Butler Bulldogs defeated the University of Notre Dame 21-13 in the inaugural game on March 7, 1928.
  • The former Butler Fieldhouse was the home of the Indiana High School Athletic Association's State Basketball tournament from 1928 to 1971, except for 1943-1945 when it was played at the nearby Pepsi Coliseum.
  • The most famous high school championship game took place in 1954, with small-town Milan's improbable victory over powerhouse Muncie Central, owner of the most state championships.
  • The reenactment in the movie Hoosiers, with the fictional Hickory High School defeating South Bend Central, was filmed here as well.
  • The building is a National Historic Landmark and was renamed for early Butler coach Tony Hinkle in 1966.
