I know this won’t be popular with all, but I’m a fan of the 2-year old Auburn Arena. Forget the fact they eliminated convenient steps to the press seating, this place should be the model for new college basketball venues.
It’s intimate. It has the creature comforts required. And it’s intimate.
I covered Indiana high school basketball in gyms about the same size, but that’s how the sport is meant to be experienced. There’s not a bad seat in this place and students sit court side behind the radio and TV announcers.
Just my two cents. Don’t hate.
