The $6 million facelift in 2005 included a complete interior renovation. The historic floor was resanded and repainted. The HVAC system, sound system and scoreboards were all upgraded. New lighting and chair-back seating were installed and the entire facility was repainted. 
Originally constructed in 1928, the Field House was once the home of the men's basketball team. More than 5,000 fans were in attendance for the facility's first game as the Sooners beat the Kansas Jayhawks, 45-19.
Since its construction, the Field House has been home to numerous sports. In addition to the basketball programs, volleyball, women's and men's gymnastics and wrestling have all featured events here. 
In addition to sporting events, the Field House has hosted several notable musicians and entertainers in its history. Oklahoma students have watched acts including Jimi Hendrix (1970), Bill Cosby (1968), Henry Mancini (1963), Sonny and Cher (1969), Nat King Cole (1956) and Duke Ellington (1956).
