University Arena (The Pit)
Originally constructed in 1966, The Pit has been the home of UNM basketball for over 45 years. During this time, The Pit has been a staple of Lobo Athletics but was in dire need of a renovation in order to keep the team in a position to win conference championships and national titles.
Though the Lobos have played in the newly remodeled facility, The Pit’s $60 million renovation is not quite complete. Additional funding is still needed to offset the continuing costs of the renovation.
The recent renovation, completed prior to the 2010-11 seasons, included video boards, a remodeled concourse, 40 suites, 381 club seats, new concessions, locker rooms, weight facilities, offices, and practice arenas, making The Pit what it is today—one of the finest college basketball facilities in the country.
