The Indiana State Sycamores basketball is the NCAA Division I men’s basketball program of Indiana State University in Terre Haute.
They compete in the Missouri Valley Conference. The group played in the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament in 2011.
The Sycamores’ time was 1896, which makes them the oldest basketball team from the NCAA along with Minnesota Bucknell and Washington ; however, the records from 1896 to 1899 more exist. The Sycamores boast 2 College Players of the Year, 14 All-Americans, 39 scorers and 1,496 victories. They are placed by their success count . 
In addition, the Sycamores have 26 Post-Season Appearances (7 NCAA, 4 NIT, 1 CBI, 1 CIT, 12 NAIA and the 1936 Olympic Trials) with 5 National Championship Appearances (2 NCAA, 3 NAIA). Seven Sycamores were members of this 1951 Pan-American Games Gold Medal-winning team. The most memorable season of the Sycamore was the UPI National title, in addition to 1978 — 79, when star Larry Bird led an undefeated team to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. However, it lost the title game versus the Magic Johnson-led Michigan State team; and ended the season with a record of 33–1. This is the deepest run by a first-time participant at the Division I tournament, and one of only 3 occasions a first-time team has advanced so far as the Final Four (UNCC in 1977 and Georgia in 1983). They wouldn’t have another postseason appearance until 2000.
