The Gophers men's basketball team were very successful in their early years. Gopher Basketball tickets sell quickly!


In modern times, the Gophers moved from the Kenwood Armory in downtown Minneapolis to the University of Minnesota Field House, later Williams Arena, in 1928. Williams Arena was named after Henry L. Williams, the former Minnesota Golden Gophers football coach in 1950. The arena originally could only sell 9,500 Minnesota Gophers men's basketball tickets, but in 1950, it was remodeled and expanded, making way for a capacity of 18,025. Williams Arena is known as one of the only arenas to have a raised court, in which players must climb stairs to an elevated playing surface.


The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers have a great chance in defending their home court Williams Arena this season. Golden Gophers men's basketball tickets are a special experience for anyone who has ever played high school basketball; the Williams Arena crowd brings one back to the old-school. "The Barn" is always filled with a raucous student section consequently titled "The Barnyard."
