University of Minnesota™ - Williams Arena™
Completed in 1928, "The Barn™" is home to Golden Gophers™ basketball and is one of most historic and unique venues in Division I basketball. Among its distinctive features is the elevated playing surface, rising two feet above the floor, which creates an intimate home court advantage that for generations has provided an unrivaled vantage point for fans of the Maroon and Gold, while presenting challenges for visiting teams. Over the years, Williams Arena has established itself as the heart of basketball in the state of Minnesota and one of the nation's legendary college arenas. Ski-U-Mah!
