INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Just hours away, the top seeded Indiana University Hoosiers will hit the hardwood and fans are making plans to watch.
The Hoosiers will be playing a little over an hours car ride down Interstate 70 in Dayton, Ohio, where a lot of fans have been flocking to get ready for Friday game that tips at just after 4 p.m.
For those who can't make the trip but want to be surrounded by Hoosier Nation when they watch the game, they go to a popular spot in downtown Indianapolis.
Kilroys is always crazy at or around march madness.
For Friday's game, they are expecting a big crowd from opening until closing.
Being an IU bar, they have been decked out in Hoosier colors and flags to represent IU here in Indianapolis.
"This will be a different situation where people will want a seat, want to come into Kilroys with the IU Bloomington theme, the feel," says Jade Abel, Kilroy's general manager. "Ya know its different here than watching it at the other local bars because we are an IU bar so they'll come early and be here throughout the night and start their weekend off."
Abel says Bloomington will be crazy but being able to have that here Indianapolis is exciting.
"Graduates, people who are in town for the weekend, being able to be a part of that is a fun feeling for sure," Abel said. "There are a lot of people that, even if they didn't go to IU, they grew up in Indiana and their an IU fan."
Kilroy's also tells 24-Hour News 8 they expect to be slammed with not only IU fans but people who are in town watching the regionals next weekend.
