“I love that we get to wear such an iconic uniform,” said IU senior guard Rob Phinisee. “They were a national championship team and it’s an honor to play in something that recognizes them.”

The 1986-87 Hoosiers were 30-4 and won the Big Ten with a 15-3 record.

They won the NCAA title in New Orleans beating UNLV in the Final Four and Syracuse in the NCAA title game on Keith Smart’s signature sweater.

Team members included the All-American Steve Alford, Smart, the late Daryl Thomas, Dean Garrett, Ricky Calloway, Steve Eyl, Joe Hillman, Magnus Pelkowski, Kreigh Smith, Tony Freeman, Brian Sloan, Todd Meier, David Minor and Jeff. Olifant.

It was the third national championship for Hall of Fame coach Bob Knight, who also won titles in 1976 and 1981.

Current IU athletic director Scott Dolson was one of the senior executives on that team. Current IU staff members who were associated with this team include Dr. Larry Rink and athletic trainer Tim Garl.
