More About Hinkle Fieldhouse by Eric Angevine
 
 
 
Overview
Walk into Hinkle Fieldhouse, and you feel it--that palpable sense of history known as the Hinkle mystique. Indiana's basketball cathedral has stood in all its glory at Butler University since 1928. John Wooden, Oscar Robertson and Larry Bird played on its floor. Jesse Owens sprinted to a record at Hinkle, and athletes from around the globe have brought Olympic-level competition to crowds gathered under its steel arches. It was the setting for the climactic scene in Hoosiers, arguably the greatest sports movie ever made. It has hosted evangelists, ice shows, tennis matches, bike races and even roller derbies. Author Eric Angevine gets inside the paint in this complete Hinkle history, featuring archival photographs of the iconic structure and words from those who know it best.
