The Indiana natives who created the basketball move "Hoosiers" are being inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.

Organizers announced Tuesday that director David Anspaugh and screenplay writer Angelo Pizzo will be inducted in March as recipients of the St. Vincent Health Silver Medal for contributions to Indiana high school basketball other than as a player or coach.

The 1986 movie is loosely based on the 1954 state championship team from tiny Milan High School and often tops lists of best all-time sports films. Anspaugh grew up in Decatur and Pizzo is from Bloomington. They also collaborated on the Notre Dame football movie "Rudy."
