There is perhaps no sport as unique and fan-friendly as college basketball in the United States. The unique combination of close-to-court seating, rowdy students, and passionate players makes the spectacle of college basketball truly second-to-none.

Add these arenas to your list if you want to have your own memorable college basketball experience in the United States. 

Rupp Arena: University of Kentucky

Kentucky’s Rupp Arena is one of the craziest arenas in college basketball, packing in 23,500 fans on an every game basis to cheer on the Big Blue. Stars like Anthony Davis and Tyler Herro have been a couple of the many famous players to play at this electric arena recently.

Cameron Indoor Stadium: Duke University

Are you looking for an intimate college basketball experience? If so, Cameron Indoor Stadium, the home of the Duke Blue Devils which seats only 9,291 is unbeatable. It might be hard to find tickets, but if you can, you’ll see the action from amazingly close up along with thousands of “Cameron Crazies.”

Phog Allen Fieldhouse: University of Kansas

The old saying says “Beware of the Phog,” and that statement runs true for the opponents who are forced to match up with the Kansas Jayhawks. Why? The crazy Kansas fans that pack into this decades-old arena create a gameday atmosphere that is unrivaled.
