(BLOOMINGTON) - Basketball fans returned to Indiana University's Assembly Hall Wednesday evening for a women's game just one day after metal fell from the ceiling, damaging seats inside the arena.

Engineers used a crane to inspect the roof of Assembly Hall a day after an 8-foot-long, 50-pound piece of metal came loose from the arena's ceiling and crashed into a group of empty seats below.

University officials said they don't believe there are structural issues with the roof, but they might consider taking a look at long-term design changes.
