D.L. Ligon Coliseum

D.L. Ligon Coliseum has been home to the Midwestern State Atheltic Department for more than 40 years, and is the site of all MSU home basketball and volleyball events.

Built in 1969, the facility was renamed from MSU Coliseum to D.L. Ligon Coliseum in 1975 in honor of the legendary Midwestern luminary.

Dr. Ligon served in many capacities during his 50-plus years of service at MSU, including stints as acting president, vice president, professor, coach and sports information director.

The 3,640-seat arena is air conditioned and has a hardwood playing surface. The building also features a practice gymnasium, athletics weight room, training room, locker rooms and classrooms as well as Midwestern's athletic offices.

The facility is currently in the second phase of a $25-plus million renovation process which includes significant locker room upgrades and updating the historic venue to current codes.

The playing court at Ligon Coliseum was officially named Dr. Gerald Stockton Court in 2002 in honor of the program's legendary coach, who led MSU to a 493 wins from 1970-94.
