Augustana enters basketball agreement with Arena

Posted: Updated:

Augustana men's and women's basketball doubleheaders won't be played on campus for the next five years.

The college announced an agreement with the Sioux Falls Arena today.

Augustana last played basketball at the Arena during the 2006-2007 season. The Sioux Falls Arena was the permanent home of Augustana basketball from 1961-1989.

Augustana athletics has been looking for a way to improve the atmosphere for home basketball games for some time, they said.

"As the Elmen Center reached its 25th anniversary, it became apparent to our administration that we either had to make improvements to the facility or look at other options," athletic director Bill Gross said.

The Sioux Falls Arena will be transformed into the new home of Augustana basketball. The venue will be painted in Augustana blue and gold, including the playing surface.
