Will the real Assembly Hall please stand up? During Sunday’s Indiana-Illinois game, the Hoosiers’ student section set the record straight with the Fighting Illini.
This is one of the the finer displays of trash talking we’ve seen so far this basketball season.

Illini fans might have a bone to pick with the Hoosiers, however. Illinois’ Assembly Hall, now known as the State Farm Center, opened in 1963. Indiana’s arena didn’t welcome fans in until 1971.
With that being said, I tend to settle debates on championships, and there are a lot more banners hanging in Indiana’s Assembly Hall than in Illinois’.
