We have zero reason to use Agganis for basketball. Case is good enough.

Shocker fans forgot to mention Kansas Coliseum, the year we were renovating Koch/Levitt
I also attended NCAA games there when we hosted back in the early 90’s

Gotta love walking down into those bathrooms to piss in a trough next to total strangers.

I enjoyed the Memphis- LSU game at Tupelo (Banccorp or whatever). Draft beer was $5 and they kept about 8-10 full cup sitting there at all times. No waiting and unlike FEF, the attendants didn't struggle to make change.

That was what the old Citrus Bowl was like. They even had a sink trough in one of their nasty bathrooms. Someone thought it was the same as the urinal troughs and, well, "went" all over it, including on fellow strangers hands.

Guy was drunk but it was a perfect microcosm on how awful that place was.

It is pretty nice now, although the neighborhood is still a dump.

RE: College basketball arenas you've been to for a game
The worst I've been to : Villanova - the Pavillion

I've been here for nova games, tennis matches, and highschool bball

Perhaps they changed it, or got renovated, because I stopped caring about Nova once I went to ECU, but that place was a dump! I remember when it had wooden bench bleachers, if you sat up too high, pipes and other things blocked the score board. It's old and out dated. Terrible lighting. Even used to have a running track around the court lol. I am pretty sure they held gym classes there. Literally worse than minges. It was so small time for an insanely rich area, with a great fans, that was supported by all the rich communities surrounding it. Pathetic!

Best: liacouras center

Been for temple games and concerts

They serve beer here, even craft. They have a bunch of different food options, like 10x better than minges terrible options. Obviously the food is way over priced but there are cheap options right out on broad. There are no bad seats, bonus is they rarely sell out so scout open seats and just move, no one ask to see your tickets. The bad parts are obviously it's not in the greatest location and parking sucks. But inside is really nice for a college venue

For me personally, nothing will ever compare to watching Memphis State play in the Mid-South Coliseum as a kid.
