10 Loudest Stadiums in College Basketball

10 08 2008

During a discussion with one of the good people over at blist, we decided it might be fun to explore what we felt were the top 10 LOUDEST stadiums in college ball… so, here’s what we came up with!

10. University of New Mexico – University Arena (“The Pit”)
9. University of Illinois – Assembly Hall
8. University of Kentucky – Rupp Arena
7. University of Arkansas – Bud Walton Arena (aka “The Basketball Palace of mid-America”)
6. Rutgers University – Louis Brown Athletic Center (“RAC”)
5. Oklahoma State University – Gallagher-Iba (“The Madison Square Garden of the Plains”)
4. University of Louisville – Freedom Hall
3. University of Florida – O’Connell Center (“The O-Dome”)
2. Duke University – Cameron Indoor Stadium (“Coach K Court”)
1. University of Kansas – Allen Fieldhouse (“The Phog”)

If you want to have a look at the blist generated for this, here’s the link!

Great list. Have to submit for consideration the Palestra in Philadelphia. The noise during a Big Five match-up or a visit from a ranked opponent for one of the Philly hosts is off-the-meter. Home to not just Penn but St. Joe’s now as their Field House is being renovated.

Basketball Palace of Middle America is a great place to catch a basketball game. Great list, New Mexico was a shocker.
