Morgantown, W.VA. – One of the most iconic basketball arenas in college basketball, and in the eyes of Mountaineers across the world, turns fifty this summer.
Fifty years of West Virginia’s beloved arena where countless Mountaineers are etched in West Virginia University history.
The Coliseum has been home to many great Mountaineers, many great upsets, matchups and memories. West Virginia has upset four Number 1-ranked teams within its walls. (Take a second and remember that 2016 upset over Kansas.)
The Coliseum has been getting a little facelift over the last several years, complete with the installation of new seats this summer.
Fifty years with this icon in our backyards. Here’s to another fifty years!
