THE FIELD HOUSE
Located in the heart of campus just north of Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, the Howard McCasland Field House provides the OU men's gymnastics, volleyball and wrestling programs with a first-class training and competition venue.
A renovation of the building concluded this summer. The list of improvements includes refurbished exterior brick, new windows and entry doors, a complete roof replacement and a remodel of the volleyball offices, locker and team rooms, renovation of main lobby, restrooms and concessions.

|| Basketball at the Field House
Opened in 1928, the OU Field House served as the Sooners' home until Lloyd Noble Center opened in December 1975. Under head coach Hugh McDermott, Oklahoma won the first game in the Field House -- a 45-19 drubbing of Phog Allen's Kansas squad on Jan. 13, 1928, as more than 5,200 fans packed the building. OU finished 18-0 that year, and Allen suffered only one worse defeat in his 38-year KU coaching career.

The Sooners won eight conference championships while playing in the facility (one Missouri Valley, six Big Six and one Big Seven). Head coaches who directed OU teams that played in the Field House were McDermott (11 seasons in the building), Bruce Drake (17), Doyle Parrack (7), Bob Stevens (5), John MacLeod (6) and Joe Ramsey (2). Drake's 1938-39 and 1946-47 squads advanced to the NCAA semifinals and final, respectively.

McCasland Field House is named after Howard McCasland, who was a standout center for the Sooners from 1914-16. During his senior campaign in 1916, McCasland totaled 407 points, which accounted for half of the entire team's season total.
