In December of 2013, a renovation of Moody Coliseum was completed to the arena that has been the home of SMU basketball since December of 1956. On Jan. 4, 2014, SMU men's and women's basketball debuted the state-of-the-art facility to a nationally-televised audience as the men hosted Connecticut and the women hosted South Florida.
The renovation and expansion of Moody Coliseum provided many new and improved features, including the Richard & Nancy Rogers Lobby at the main west entrance, expanded concourses with raised ceilings, club seats, loge boxes, private suites, group suites, new event space, offices, team locker rooms and meeting space.
A 39,245-square-foot facility, the Miller Event Center includes the Miller Champions Club, a 5,000-square-foot furnished entertainment area on the concourse level named in honor of Miller by contributions of several friends, including leadership commitments from Gina and Tucker Bridwell and Belle and Don Berg, 12 premium suites with courtside views, LED televisions and in-suite catering, a balcony terrace that is available during men's basketball games to those with suite, floor, loge and club seats, and administrative areas to support student-athletes and coaches.
"Moody Magic" has become a popular term regarding SMU's play at the Coliseum. From 1956 through 2013, SMU men's basketball was 510-261 (.661) in Moody Coliseum as the Mustangs captured nine conference titles. From 1976 through 2013, women's basketball was 332-197 (.628) with five combined conference regular season and tournament titles.
