SOUTH BEND — "An Evening of Indiana Basketball with Todd Meier and Terry Hutchens" is being planned by the St. Joseph County chapter of the Indiana University Alumni Association.

The free event is set for Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the University Grill in the IUSB Administration Building, 1700 Mishawaka Ave. A social begins at 6 p.m., with the program following from 6:30 to 8:30.

Meier was a senior tri-captain on the Hoosiers' 1987 national title team who later moved to Elkhart. Hutchens is a longtime sportswriter who has authored several books about IU sports.
