Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall opened as Assembly Hall during the 1971-72 season and Branch McCracken Court was dedicated on December 18, 1971. Since then, millions of fans have attended Indiana basketball games. Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall holds 17,222 fans and is consistently sold out throughout the regular Men’s Basketball season.
Three national championship teams have called the stadium home. The home crowd is definitely a factor in the outcome of Indiana’s games as the Hoosiers have posted winning streaks of 50 and 35 games over the years. Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall is also home to the largest student sections in the country.
In December 2013, IU Athletics announced a $40 million gift — the largest in its history — from IU alumna Cindy Simon Skjodt to provide much-needed renovations to Assembly Hall and launch IU Athletics’ capital campaign. In recognition of the gift, Assembly Hall was renamed Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall and was re-opened and dedicated on Oct. 14, 2016.
