The College Basketball Experience, a world class entertainment facility connected to Sprint Center by the Grand Lobby, is two floors and 41,500 square feet of basketball exuberance. It houses the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, where visitors can honor college basketball legends and learn about the history of the game.
The CBE is not just a place where you go and look. The word “experience” is in the title because that’s exactly what fans can do – experience the game of college basketball. At “Beat The Clock,” fans try to make a game-winning shot before the buzzer sounds, mirroring some of college basketball’s greatest moments. At “Step To The Line,” fans face the pressure of a hostile arena while attempting to make as many consecutive free throws as possible in a set amount of time. Or they can play like the big boys on one of the Slam Dunk courts with rims at six different heights.
Virtually every skill of the game has an activity station – rebounding, passing, three-point shooting, free throw shooting and more. For a change of pace, visitors can sit down at the ESPNU desk and call the highlights of actual NCAA basketball action. There are also numerous kiosks with fascinating insight from coaches and players about college basketball.
