Braves News · Boys Basketball @ The Hoosier Gym

There has been a change with the boys basketball schedule for the Franklin County, Indiana game that was previously scheduled for January 27th at THS.  The freshmen (4:30PM) and JV team (6:00PM) will now be played on Thursday, January 25th at Talawanda High School. The varsity game has been moved to Knightstown, Indiana (Hoosier Gym) and will start at 12:00pm on Saturday, January 27th.  The Historic Hoosier Gym (, located in Knightstown, Indiana, is most famous for being the central location for the 1986 basketball movie Hoosiers, starring Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper.  The gym has kept the same look as it did when the movie was filmed over 30 years ago and has now been turned into a museum and community center.  The Hoosier Gym only holds 680 people.  We will be given our half (340) tickets to sell for the game and Talawanda HS will receive a portion of the money from ticket sales.  Tickets for the game will cost $10 per person and everyone must have a ticket to get in the gym.  THERE WILL BE NO PASSES FOR THIS GAME or SENIOR DISCOUNTS.   We anticipate tickets to go fast to be able to watch a game in the Hoosier Gym.  If you would like to reserve tickets now please stop in the athletic office.  We will also be selling them at Friday’s home basketball game vs Little Miami and then again next week. You will need to pay for the tickets and we will hold them for you.  Once the tickets arrive next week we will hand them out in time for the game. If you have any questions please stop in the athletic office.
