The Nest!

The Hornets Nest is one of the oldest facilities among all NCAA Division I member universities. With a seating capacity of approximately 1,200, the intimate setting results in a great opportunity for the fans to be close to the action from every seat in the gym. It also provides the Hornets one of the best home-court advantages in the NCAA. In 2002, the Hornet men's basketball team sold out every game in Big Sky Conference play.
