The IU men’s basketball team celebrated Senior Night after the final home game last night.
Indiana entered Thursday’s game against Wisconsin hoping to send Jeremiah Rivers out victorious in his final game at Assembly Hall. Jordan Taylor had other ideas. Taylor led all scorers with 39 points, one point shy of the Assembly Hall record for an opposing player as Wisconsin defeated Indiana 77 to 67.
Rivers took the opportunity to speak to lingering fans in Assembly Hall about the ups and downs of the last couple of seasons.
“Winning and losing I know its been tough for everybody. But I can tell you that I’ve had the most memorable wins of my life in here,” said Rivers.
IU head coach Tom Crean said that Rivers’ biggest contribution to the program is helping to build for its future.
“Jeremiah Rivers has been as big a part of laying the foundation of what hard work, of what defense, of what unselfishness, of what desire, doing what it takes for the team to get better,” said Crean.
Rivers finished his final home game with six points and four rebounds. IU travels to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Tournament March 10th through the 13th at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
