I am surprised that BC would go to UofH, but the Chase Arena is head and shoulders a better venue than the Detrick Gym.
CHase arena as far a physical characteristics is bette.. but the actual design SUCKS.. Its like sitting in a drum all the sound is amplified off the rounded roof right back in your face. I hate going there.
All true but I'd take it over ours all day and on Sunday.

Agreed Hoops. It presents itself well on TV too.

I would love it if the Chase Arena was on Centrals campus. Come on, it's a no brainer.

No way - that place at Hartford has no energy. It is like the old Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati - outdated just a decade after it was first built. While it does have an "arena look" on the inside, it is not much better than a what we have, if we were willing to invest in "arena style" seating. Yes, that won't likely happen, but I still like the idea of Fenway-type renovations to Detrick Gym.

Personally, the best building model for CCSU is either the Events Center at Binghamton or the Multipurpose Athletic Center at Monmouth

Those arenas are definitely desirable, but my point is that if I could trade Detrick for Chase without any cost, it would be a no brainer.
As far as having no energy...the energy does not come from the building but rather from the people inside of it.

I was at the Chase Arena once and was not impressed. The Detrick Gym will never be featured in Architectural Digest, but from a functional standpoint it works. At least until something better comes along. Whenever that is. If ever. Maybe?
