In Game

TCU’s Schollmaier Arena underwent an $80 million renovation before the 2015 season, which has brought new life to the arena. The arena has transformed from a ho-hum arena into a state-of-the-art facility that every college basketball fan should take in at least once. The new touches to the arena such as the Hall of Fame, Horned Frog patterned court, and new facade all go a long way in improving the experience of attending a TCU basketball game.

The Horned Frogs also have a fairly good in-game atmosphere. You won’t mistake a TCU basketball game with a Kansas basketball game, but there is plenty of pageantry on display inside Schollmaier Arena. The student section, known as the “Purple Haze,” do an admirable job of showing their support, and the TCU Spirit Squad, Super Frog, and the TCU Showgirls all bring their A game.

TCU is located right outside of Fort Worth, so you’ll have no problem finding some pre and post game entertainment. Dutch’s is a great place to grab a burger and Buffalo Bros Sports Bar has a wide variety of options if you’re looking for something else near campus. If you don’t mind driving into Fort Worth, then make sure to stop by Billy Bob’s Texas, which is the home of the “World’s Largest Honky Tonk.”

You’ll have an enjoyable time attending a basketball game thanks to the recent renovations to Schollmaier Arena.
