Wow what a game. There we lots of UMass fans there and they thought this was going to be a joke. The Jags have earned respect and deserve more media coverage. I want to know where else you can see great Div. 1 basketball for $10?

Funny thing is I had two extra tickets for the game and none of my friends wanted to go because they figured IUPUI BBall would be a waste of time. Maybe next time.

Last night's news on Channel 13 covered Butler for 5 minutes, Purdue, IU and the Pacers. But no IUPUI.

Thanks, Star, for covering it.

I watched it this AM and the same thing except they did flash the score and mentioned IUPUI won.

I would hate to have to market this program.

It's understandable that OSU was at Butler on the same night and 10,000 fans chose that game, but sure would have expected more than 1,100 to show up for UMass.

I bought five tickets for the game and was surprised to have four people come after the first round of invites canceled out. I think we will have an easier time getting folks to come out after this win :)

Yes.. great win for our emerging program. Thanks Star for billing it #2 behind Butler. Bottomline, the program needs more funding and attention, these wins will become more frequent. UMass had just beaten Syracuse for pete's sake!

OSU hadn't beaten anybody and Harvard beat Michigan... Who's the better team this year between the Jags and Butler? Time will tell.

All right, this makes it clear that the Jags and Pacers should trade arenas. That is if you want to call cage IUPUI plays in an arena. I've said it before, I'll say it again, let the Jags play at Conseco. It works for Madsion Square Garden in NYC for the NHL's Rangers, NCAA's St. John's, and the NBA's (the Knicks are still technically considered an NBA team like the Pacers, right?) Kicks (sic). IUPUI is already downtown (I don't want to hear from you wannabe Magellans out there about how its west of d/t). So whats the problem? We've already built it; let them come.

Oh, and GO JAGS! Maybe in the next few years or so we could have an Indiana invitational tournament - Notre Dame, Purdue, Valparaiso (sp?), Ball State, Indiana State, Butler, IUPUI, IU, and Evansville. All of these teams have been to the tourney; lets see who's the best. Thats 9 teams right there; throw IUPUFW in there (also Division I but no dancing yet), and you've got a serious 10 team tournament. But it'll never happen - IU and PU would rather play Northwest James Mason State Tech of Dover. At least Ohio State answered the bell and came to Hinkle.

Ohio State came to Hinkle as a favor from Thad Matta. Now they have to go play in Columbus for the next 3 years, where Butler will get run out of the gym and OSU will get the easy W's they want.

IUPUI plays in a tiny high school gym. No one will ever take them seriously until that situation is fixed.

At least move higher profile games to Conseco and block off the upper deck.

All of you make note that IUPUI plays in a 'tiny high school gym', but none of you are willing to step up to the plate and donate a nickel to the cause...

Feel free to make an unrestricted gifr to the program... every penny helps build the program.

Um, the gym ONLY HOLDS 1,100. The student section had been sold out for a week (students have to pick up tickets a couple days before the game).

That is entirely inaccurate. Butler and OSU have a 4-year double home-and-home, with 1 more game in Columbus and one in Indianapolis.

And wow, just wow to the delusional fan who even invites the possibility that IUPUI is remotely close to being on par with Butler. You are talking about a likely Top 10 team when the next poll comes out, and a smart bet to make the NCAA's third weekend.

IUPUI would be lucky to stay within 35 of the Bulldogs. You might as well imply that IUPUI might beat Memphis or Washington State, it would be equally ridiculous.

Actually "the Jungle" holds 2,000 people.

I've said it before, but when your head coach is too embarrassed to show recruits the gym, it's time for a new gym. If IUPUI doesn't take the program seriously, how can the public?

As for raising the money, if Lafayette Jeff can get 8.5 million dollars (privately financed) for a football field, how come IUPUI can’t build a gym bigger than a middle school?

Lucky to stay within 35 of the Bulldogs is a little steep. By no means would I predict the Jags to beat Butler, but don't think the 'Dawgs would win by 35 either.
It's good to be confident, but arrogance is ignorance.
George Hill wouldn't allow his team to be beaten by 35, no question.

Apparently Mr/Mrs. IPS hasn't been to a game this season. With the new seats, The Jungle holds just over 1,200.

It was previously listed as 2,000, but held approximately 1,700.
