The Indiana basketball program is set to face off with Ohio State on Saturday night and are honoring former head coach Bob Knight with new warmups.

Knight graduated from Ohio State in 1962 after a successful basketball career for the Buckeyes. He played for Basketball Hall of Fame coach Fred Taylor in Columbus. He was part of the 1960 National Championship team for the Buckeyes.

Following his graduation, Knight started his coaching career at the high school level before joining the Army staff and then eventually to Indiana.

Knight led Indiana to three NCAA titles in 1976 (32-0), 1981, and 1987. He also led team USA to a gold medal in 1984. Knight had a record of 661-240 during his tenure at Indiana.

The Indiana basketball program also honored Knight earlier this season against Army, with the coaching staff debuting the classic red sweater look on the sidelines.

Indiana is also wearing ‘RMK’ patches on its jerseys this season.

Knight passed away on Nov. 1, 2023.
