Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame

This Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame is the Sports Museum and Hall of Fame in New Castle, Indiana. While the award recognizes men and women associated with high school, college and professional basketball in Indiana, the focus is on the athlete’s high school career in anticipation of employment.


The Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame was established in 1962. The museum was located in Indianapolis from 1970 to 1986. Today, the facilities of the new castle were opened in 1990.

In addition to displaying the names of Hall of Famers, the museum also includes photographs, pennants, and artifacts showcasing championship teams and their schools.


Players are eligible for the Hall of Fame “twenty-six years after graduating from high school.” After the 2000-2001 season, the first women were eligible for the job. On March 1, 2002, Cinda Rice Brown became the first woman to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Hall of Fame website provides official inductees; notable names include John Wood, Everett Keyes, Oscar Robertson, Lee H. Hamilton, Larry Bird, Del Harris Barron Hill, Gregg Popovich and Chuck Taylor.
