Rockets’ Red Glare

Thursday, February 8, 2024
With the eyes and ears of 18,055 basketball fans turned their way, members of the Greencastle Classics Choir deliver “The Star-Spangled Banner” Tuesday, Feb. 6 prior to the Indiana Pacers game. Not only did the students have the chance to witness the Pacers’ 123-117 win over the Houston Rockets, but got a look at Gainbridge Fieldhouse as it gears up for the Feb. 18 NBA All-Star Game, the first time the city of Indianapolis has hosted the event in 39 years, when it took place at the old Hoosier Dome.
