The IUPUI Jaguars men's basketball team is the men's basketball team that represents Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. The school's team currently competes in The Summit League. The team last played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2003. The Jaguars are currently led by head coach Jason Gardner. In 2008, guard George Hill skipped his final year of eligibility and entered the NBA Draft where he was selected by the San Antonio Spurs, becoming the first player drafted from IUPUI.[2]

From 1982 to 2014 the Jaguars played on campus at The Jungle, which could seat 1,215. Beginning with the 2014–15 season, the Jaguars played at the historic Fairgrounds Coliseum on the State Fairgrounds. Prior to the Jaguars move, the arena underwent a $63 million renovation to modernize it for the fair and for basketball. The renovated arena has capacity for 6,800.[3]
