INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Crossroads Classic will continue to be played in Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the four schools involved in the games announced Monday.
Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, and Butler Universities initially agreed to play for two seasons in 2010, but will continue the non-conference matchups until at least 2016.
"We are so excited that Bankers Life Fieldhouse will continue to be the home of the Crossroads Classic," said Rick Fuson, chief operating officer of Bankers Life Fieldhouse. "We are grateful to be chosen as the host venue for this great day of college basketball."
Morgan Burke, Purdue athletic director, called it an easy decision based on the popularity of the event.

"I think I speak for my three colleagues when I say that while we envisioned the Crossroads Classic being a success, its popularity the first two years has exceeded our expectations," Burke said. "As a result, it was an easy decision to once again extend the agreement."
The schools announced the two additional dates for Dec. 19, 2015, and Dec. 17, 2016.
