The best college basketball arenas are those university basketball venues most loved by fans and most feared by visiting opposing players. Featuring decades of history, seating for tens of thousands and roaring student sections, these are the best arenas NCAA Basketball has to offer.
It's no coincidence that many of the best NCAA Basketball arenas are home to many of the perennially successful college basketball teams. Duke University is usually always a contender in March Madness and has seen a great deal of success on their home court at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The same goes for the University of Kansas, who recently won the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship in 2008. Their Allen Fieldhouse has been helping them with the home-court advantage since 1955 and continues to be one of the best in the country for college hoops.
But quality college basketball arenas are not exclusive to only the elite teams. Squads like the New Mexico Lobos, who play at University Arena AKA The Pit, the Arkansas Razorbacks, who call Bud Walton Arena home, and the Butler Bulldogs, who hit the court at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, all play in stellar arenas despite not necessarily leading the pack come March.If you ask anyone on the street what their favorite college basketball arena is you'll probably get wherever their school or favorite team plays but despite fan favoritism, these NCAA Basketball arenas are the cream of the crop.
