BLOOMINGTON – Many of the fans that made their way south or north to see some basketball on Sunday may have expected something treterous on Sunday afternoon.
A late-winter storms was expected to dump a few inches of snow in Central Indiana, with the Bloomington and Monroe County areas expected to get some snow. That figured to snarl the commute for Hoosiers’ basketball fans heading to Assembly Hall for the team’s game with No. 22 Ohio State.
But right around game time, the bulk of the ice and snow managed to pass through without much trouble as roads for the most part remained passable from Indianapolis to Bloomington. Indiana University thought the conditions were good enough that they announced early in the afternoon.
It wasn’t until the evening that things started living up to the initial storm hype.
While fans were inside cheering the Hoosiers on to victory some initial sleet turned to snow in the early evening, accumulating anywhere from one-to-two inches on the Indiana University campus.
Despite the weather there were no major traffic issues to report even with the game letting out as the snow continued to come down.
Luckily, most of the Indiana fans went to their cars happy since the Hoosiers’ defeated the Buckeyes 72-64.
