In Game

The Tulane Green Wave play in the quaint 4,100-seat Devlin Fieldhouse. The building’s small size creates an intimate feeling that you won’t find at too many other venues throughout Division I college hoops. The arena’s small size puts you on top of the action and gives attending a Tulane basketball game a unique feel.

Another aspect of the arena that makes a Tulane basketball game a pleasant and enjoyable experience is the fact Devlin Fieldhouse is the ninth oldest continuously operating basketball arena in the nation. You can feel the history the minute you step into the building, so enjoy knowing the fact you’re attending a game at a historic venue when watching the Green Wave play.

While Devlin Fieldhouse may only accommodate 4,100 fans, those in attendance are all loud in their support of the Green Wave. You won’t find any bandwagoners here who are content to sit on their hands, and no matter what the score Green Wave fans can be heard supporting their team.

Finally, New Orleans is a great city to visit, and there are tons of great dining options for before or after the game. Camellia Grill is a great place to grab a burger, and you’ll be able to get an alligator sausage hot dog at nearby Dat Dog.

A Green Wave game is a good time for anyone looking to experience an intimate college basketball venue and is an excellent way to for any college hoops fan to spend some time in the Big Easy.
