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 Horizon League. The first year of IUPUI basketball was 1971–72 and the school competed as a NCAA Division III Independent. From 1982 to 2014, the Jaguars played on campus at The Jungle, which seated 1,215. Beginning with the 2014–15 season, the Jaguars play their home games at the Indiana Farmers 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.[2]

The Jaguars are currently led by head coach Jason Gardner. The Jaguars joined the Horizon League on July 1, 2017, replacing Valparaiso who left the conference on the same day.[3]
