Bob Knight: Ex-Indiana coach expected to return to Assembly Hall Saturday

On Saturday afternoon, Bob Knight is expected to make his long-awaited return to Assembly Hall. He’ll enter the arena for the first time since getting fired in 2000, as he’ll watch the Hoosiers take on the Purdue Boilermakers. The news was first reported by Sports Illustrated Hoosiers team reporter Tom Brew and later confirmed by The Athletic’s Seth Davis. 

The game will include a halftime celebration honoring the 40-year anniversary of Indiana’s 1979-80 team, which went 21-8 and rose to No. 1 in the AP poll before eventually losing in the Sweet 16.
