IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED…
By now you have probably seen the new main court in Flood Arena, which was completed in August and includes a large “B” at center court. But what you may have missed recently are 54 new additions that further enhance the arena.
Thanks to generous help from James'49 and Joan Dahlquist'47 Flood, who provided the lead gift for the construction of the facility back in 1987, new blue and gold conference championship banners hang high above both endlines on the main court.
From the first conference title (football, 1923) to the most recent (baseball, 2009), all 54 league crowns the Buccaneers have won are proudly recognized.
If you haven’t seen them you can stop by any time and have a look. Or you can see them and cheer on the Buccaneer basketball teams as they host their home finales this Wednesday night against Carroll University. Game time for the women’s team is 5 p.m. while the men are scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m.
