New Idaho Basketball Arena To Break Ground Very Soon

Recommended Posts

It’s small at 4,200 seats, but it’s really nice with a practice facility, nice facility for higher end season ticket holders, and can change shape for concerts and other events. It looks like the perfect new facility for a school like Idaho. It’ll definitely help their recruiting. Apparently they were looking at a 6,000 seat arena, but it would’ve made it tough to pay off comfortably.

Good thing it will be used for concerts and such because there is no way Idaho sells 4000 for a basketball game.

Gorgeous arena!

Taco Bell Arena needs a major face lift, but I doubt that will happen as the university is too focused on the football program. 

That may seem shortsighted in the past, but now Albertsons Stadium is finally hosting concerts.

Nice for Idaho to have good news for a change.

This place looks pretty sweet.

Since we're posting about random school's construction, check out what ballin' really looks like.

Consider all of this is building on where where they are today

and keep in mind every other entity mentioned in the article above exists because of UCSD.

They join the Big West next year

The coolest thing about the Idaho arena IMO is that it will be timber construction.  Should be beautiful as long as they don't paint something stupid on the floor.
