Pacers set dates to wear ‘Hickory’ uniforms

The Indiana Pacers will wear throwback Hickory uniforms, commemorating the 30-year anniversary of the Academy Award-winning movie “Hoosiers,” for the first time on Nov. 6 at home against the Miami Heat.

The Pacers announced Thursday that the uniforms will be worn 10 times during the season.

Others home dates include Dec. 23 against Sacramento, Jan. 26 against the Los Angeles Clippers, Feb. 24 against New York, March 15 against Boston and April 10 against Brooklyn. They’ll be worn on the road Nov. 29 at the Los Angeles Lakers, Dec. 30 at Chicago, Jan. 13 at Boston and April 3 at New York.

The movie was inspired by tiny Milan High School’s boys state basketball championship in 1954. That team will be honored March 15 during the game against the Celtics.

“While the uniform is inspired by the film, ‘Hoosiers,’ through the multiyear partnership with MGM, Hickory will serve as a platform to celebrate, recognize and honor those that have helped make our state synonymous with the game of basketball,” said Todd Taylor, chief sales and marketing officer for Pacers Sports & Entertainment. “We are excited to officially announce the game dates and honorees for the upcoming season and look forward to wearing the uniform as a collective celebration of basketball across the State of Indiana.”
