SMU's Moody Coliseum Hosting Last Game Before $47M Overhaul
SMU's Moody Coliseum tonight will host its last men's basketball game before the arena "shuts down for major renovation." The $47M project is "well under way outside the arena," and on Monday "workers will move inside." The upgraded facility will feature suites, courtside retractable seats for students, a remodeled lobby, concourses, locker rooms, restrooms, video boards, an overhead scoreboard, new sound system and Internet access. The arena is scheduled to reopen in December "before the first Big East game" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 2/27).
