History

The Lawlor Events Center in Reno, Nevada has been the home of the Nevada Wolf Pack men’s basketball team since 1983. The 11,536 seat venue is the largest in Northern Nevada.

Over the years, the Lawlor Events Center has undergone several renovations. In 2005, premier and courtside seats were added to the arena. A few years later, the men’s basketball team’s locker rooms and offices were upgraded in 2007.

The Lawlor Events Center has been the site of conference basketball tournaments on several occasions including the 1986 Big Sky Conference Men’s Tournament, the 1996 to 2000 Big West Men’s Basketball Tournaments, and the 2006 and 2010 WAC Men’s Basketball Tournaments. The venue was also featured in Eddie Money’s music video for the song “Take Me Home Tonight.”
