College Stadium Review: McAlister Field House

The Citadel basketball team has never been to the NCAA Tournament. Will this be their year? Come out to McAlister Field House and find out.

McAlister Field House

It is the eighth oldest college basketball venue still in use in the nation.

The Bulldogs only D-I postseason appearance was in the 2009 CIT when they were knocked out in the first round to eventual champion Old Dominion. Can the Bulldogs get back to the postseason in 2016?
The Bulldogs home is the McAlister Field House which opened in 1939 and seats 6000 fans. It is the eighth oldest college basketball venue still in use in the nation. It is older than Kansas’ Allen Field House, Cameron Indoor Stadium at Duke or even Pauley Pavilion at UCLA.
With 6000 seats, all are close to the action. You can enjoy a great view of the game along with your favorite concessions such as corn dogs, nachos, hot dogs, and Coke products while watching the game. The students are into the game and keep the energy and noise level high as they root on the Bulldogs.
The Citadel is part of the Southern Conference which includes teams such as UT Chattanooga, East Tennessee State, Furman, Mercer, Samford, UNC Greensboro, VMI, Western Carolina, and Wofford. These teams will be trying to get to the NCAA Tournament by winning the SoCon Tournament. They will also be trying to secure a postseason berth by winning the regular season championship, something the Bulldogs have never done. Will this be the year?
You do not want to miss out on the fun of Bulldogs basketball this season. Bring the kids out to as many games as you can.
