Nowhere in the country is the fan base for two top college basketball programs so divided by a river! The Ohio River separates the fanatical Indiana Hoosier fans to the north and passionate University of Kentucky fans to the south. WNIN embraces our unique basketball geography with a weekly radio program called Red Blue Hoops. Hosts Chad Payton (IU) and Evan Beck (UK) will compare, debate, and critique the IU and UK basketball programs and occasionally other area basketball teams like USI and UE.Each week Chad and Evan will review the latest game results, discuss the next week’s games, and rib each other about unexpected losses. And expect very passionate debate (also known as good natured “trash talking”) when the subject turns to which program has the most tradition or which has had the better players over the years.Red Blue Hoops is broadcast live at 6pm Central Time each Thursday on WNIN-FM. Be a part of the action by calling in (812.426.7400) or tweeting questions @redbluehoops for the hosts. Listen on your radio on 88.3 FM or online!

Red Blue Hoops Season 3: Episode 2

 What is the 30 year curse causing the University of Indiana's men's basketball team from winning an NCAA Championship since 1987? Join hosts Evan Beck and Chad Payton discussing theories they've heard to explain the championship title drought for IU. Beck  is happy that the University of Kentucky was able to win both of their games since last show. He also noted that winning at Vanderbilt's Memorial Gymnasium is always an accomplishment due to the uniqueness of the court.

 Other than trying to solve the 30 year old curse, Payton talked through IU's games the past week. From winning at home against Illinois to losing on the road to Maryland, he examined what IU needs to do in the upcoming games this season. Also discussed is if IU or Purdue will win when they play each other this season. At the end of the show Beck and Payton also touch on University of Evansville and University of Southern Indiana basketball.

Catch Red Blue Hoops back in action next Thursday night at 6pm Central on 88.3 WNIN-FM and online at wnin.org. You can also connect with the show on Twitter by following @redbluehoops. More information and previous shows can be found on the Red Blue Hoops page.
