Redbird has had some nice updates over the years (painting the green and yellow??) vents up top grey, the videoboards, the addition of the suite, etc. It is a beautiful arena. The only thing that really bothers me about it is the incredibly large lifeless, concrete moat that separates the fans from the court. That moat alone is why it can't be one of the best, imho. If they can bring the fans close to the floor next year, then it will be a spectacular arena.
anyone know if the moat will remain when they update the lower bowl?
I could see them refraining from having the main seats go all the way to the court (for versatility sake), and having a mini-moat... but if that happens, they need to come up with filling it in with a sub-section of seating, and maybe even a row or two of folding chairs. The Beslin Center in East Lansing would be a good example.
Couldn't they just put chairs there now? IMO that moats not going away.

I heard a truck load of crocodiles was headed this way.
They shoulda ordered hippos. They may look cute, but they'll kick the ass of anyone trying to cross the moat, worse than a croc.

No moat.

It really was not as bad as a lot of places. Especially round buildings. Actually, it helps sightlines for the whole building, towards the court. But now there is better engineering to have both.

Can we at least put a pit of vipers behind the opponent's bench?
