    Re: best college basketball stadiums

    I'm an ISU fan, and I already know that Hilton is no longer one of the best stadiums.

    Re: best college basketball stadiums

    Crowd wise or actual stadiums?

    Crowds...

    Kentucky, Tenn, Louisville, KU, Michigan St.


    Stadium wise.. I haven no idea. I haven't been to a college away game out of the state of Iowa.

    In state -- ISU, UNI, Drake, IA in that order.

    Sadly, Hilton Magic has been on the decline over the last few years

    Stadium vs Crowd

    Haven't been to that many arenas- but I'd have to say Allen Fieldhouse and William's Arena are my favorite places to watch a game.

    Crowd wise I'd have to say Indiana, KU and ISU.

    Re: best college basketball stadiums

    Best atmosphere (arena plus crowd) that I've been to:
    1. Assembly Hall - Illinois - BY FAR
    2. Williams Arena - Minnesota
    3. Allen Fieldhouse - Kansas
    4. Kohl Center - Wisconsin
    5. Hilton Coliseum - would be number 2 in the past
    6. McHale Center - Arizona

    Worst - (tie) - Colorado, Penn State.

    Would like to see games in: Gallagher-Iba Arena and Breslin Center

    Great building... Im sure the 35 people who attended each game last year thought so too.

    UNI was just a little too late for taking advantage of a good mens hoops following while they made their NCAA runs

    A gym that seats 7,000 basically tells recruits "we have a small fan base." Same as the Knapp Center. They're both glorified high school gyms.
    Compare that with other schools in your own conference - Missouri State, Illinois State, Bradley - that have big-time arenas.

    Will the game be played in the Dome?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
