The Aggies play their home games at the Pan American Center which opened in 1968 and holds almost 9000 fans for home games. Every seat is a chair back and all have a great view of he court. You will enjoy the great college basketball with your favorite concession items such as popcorn, nachos, hot dogs and beer!
The student section is in the lower end behind one of the baskets, so they create a loud environment to make it tough for the opponents. This makes for a good atmosphere for the fans.
The Aggies are part of the Western Athletic Conference which has teams such as UMKC, Cal State Bakersfield, Chicago State, Grand Canyon U, Seattle U, Texas Rio Grande Valley and Utah Valley. These teams will be trying to win the WAC Tournament to advance to the NCAA Tournament this season and New Mexico State is one of the favorites.
