Indiana University men’s basketball coach Tom Crean has announced that the Hoosiers will host the University of Southern Indiana at 7 p.m., Saturday, October 26, and Hillsdale (Michigan) College at 7 p.m., Monday, November 4 in exhibition games.

The 2013-14 season marks the ninth campaign that the Hoosiers have opened the season with exhibition games against non-Division I schools.  IU is 14-0 in those games and have played schools from the state of Indiana on nine occasions.

“I think the more you can involve institutions from the area during the exhibition season, the stronger it makes both programs,” said Crean.  “Our goal in scheduling our exhibition games is to find programs that will best prepare us for the upcoming season and both these teams will do that. ”

USI was 23-8 last year and is a member of the Great Lakes Valley Conference, while Hillsdale was 17-10 a year ago and competes in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
