Senior wide receiver Andre Booker says he was young when the attacks happened but seeing the memorial "really makes a lot more sense." Booker said "it's really emotional, really upsetting and I'm glad we got to come and see it all."

The visit to the memorial ended nearly a week of game preparation and sightseeing in New York for the Hoosiers.
