The Southeastern Conference’s most historic home for college basketball, Memorial Gymnasium serves as the home court for the Vanderbilt Commodores. Dedicated in 1952 as a memorial to all Vanderbilt men and women who served in World War II, the arena was built as a combination gymnasium and concert hall by the late master architect Edwin Keeble. … The unique style of Memorial Gymnasium — with its benches situated on the baseline, a playing court that sits above portions of the crowd and deafening acoustics — continues to make the Commodores’ home a dreaded stop for opponents. “Memorial Magic,” with its capacity crowds, overflowing student section and lively pep band have assisted in numerous Commodore victories. In the stands, fans across Middle Tennessee have helped Memorial Gymnasium (capacity 14,316) rank among the NCAA’s top 30 attendance leaders in men’s basketball 23 times since 1977. The women’s team has also been among the nation’s attendance leaders. Since 2005-06, the Commodores have been one of just a handful of programs to finish in the top 25 of average attendance each season.
