Basketball vs. Purdue

description:

At present (4/24/2015) this is the earliest known photograph showing NCAA championship banners hanging in Assembly Hall. It is also not believed that banners were ever on display in what is today the Wildermuth and Gladstein fieldhouses.

NOTE: Images shot by the IU News Bureau during the December 9, 1972 basketball game vs. Kentucky, and that show the walls above the baseline at both ends of the floor, do not show banners on display. We can therefore surmise that the banners in the image seen here were put up sometime after the game vs. Kentucky noted above, but before this game vs. Purdue.
