Bob Knight to speak at Indiana hall fundraiser

INDIANAPOLIS — Bob Knight is returning to Indiana after all.

The former Hoosiers coach will speak at a Dec. 17 fundraiser in Indianapolis to benefit the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.

The event comes less than six weeks after Knight missed a ceremony inducting him into Indiana University’s athletics Hall of Fame in Bloomington.

Knight’s exclusion from the IU hall had been a contentious issue since then-President Myles Brand fired him in September 2000 for violating a zero-tolerance policy.

Knight said he would not attend the ceremony because he did not want to detract from the other inductees.
