Basketball Gameday Central
Basketball Gameday Central
Noble Center on the campus of the
University of Oklahoma in Norman features excellent
seating and some of the best college basketball in
the nation. Since its opening in 1975, nearly four
million fans have come through the LNC doors in
anticipation of a Sooner victory.
A $17.1 million expansion and renovation project
in 2001 added key improvements. A 70,000-square-foot
addition to the south side of the facility included
two new full-sized practice courts: one for men's basketball
and one for women's.
Both OU basketball programs also boast new offices,
film rooms, training rooms, locker rooms, spa/sauna
rooms and a full-sized weight room in the addition.
The project also enhanced the Lloyd Noble Center for
the wide variety of public events it hosts, including
graduations, concerts and large meetings.
included an expanded LNC parking lot, renovated arena
ceiling and a modernization of the electrical systems.
At a cost of more than $3 million, a state-of-the-art four-sided center-hung LED video display, corner-hung display boards and a revamped sound system made their debut during the 2007-08 season.
University of Oklahoma President David L. Boren said, "We
are very proud to be the home of world class facilities
for both men's and women's basketball. Thanks to the
generosity of Sooner fans and alumni, our facilities
are second to none in the United States."
ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas echoed, "Oklahoma's
basketball facilities are magnificent - second to none.
Everything is top of the line and very well conceived.
These facilities communicate the same message the Sooners
do through their play - a commitment to pursuing excellence."
The OU Athletics Department, its
staff and gameday personnel are committed to providing
complete accessibility to all facilities, fair and
equal treatment of all patrons and guests, and meaningful
compliance with the letter and spirit of the law.
