Home to Butler University basketball from 1928 to the present. Also housed the Indianapolis Jets of the BAA from 1948 - 1949. The Jets folded after the 1949 season. Also home to the Indianapolis Olympians of the NBA from 1949 - 1953. The Olympians folded after the 1953 season.

Hinkle Fieldhouse is known as Indiana's Basketball Cathedral and is on the U.S. national resister of historic places. The Butler Bulldogs have a distinct advantage playing here. Over the years, the capacity has actually shrunk. Originally, the Fieldhouse sat 15,000, but after a major renovation in 2009, the capacity has been reduced to 10,000. The renovations continued from 2011 thru 2014.

The movie "Hoosiers" was filmed here. And it is the sixth oldest college basketball venue still in use. Walking into Hinkle is like walking back in time. IF you are anywhere in Indianapolis, you have to come check this place out.

Location - 510 West 49th Street Indianapolis, Indiana On the campus of Butler University.
