DALLAS (SMU) --- After 57 seasons, nine conference championships and more than 500 wins, SMU men's basketball will play its final home game in Moody Coliseum's current configuration on Wednesday, Feb. 27, when the Mustangs host Rice at 7 p.m. On the 27th, SMU will also celebrate Senior Night prior to the game at the Coliseum, which is undergoing a $47 million expansion and renovation.
The updated Moody Coliseum (newmoody.com) will feature new premium seating, as well as courtside retractable seating designated for students and renovation of the entry lobby and concourses. Technology improvements will include new video boards, scoreboards, sound system, broadcast capabilities and heating and cooling systems. In addition, office suites, restrooms and locker rooms will be upgraded. The renovation, which began on the north side of the Coliseum in August, will expand into the main building in early March. The building is scheduled to re-open in December 2013, prior to SMU's first game in the BIG EAST.
SMU men's basketball has four remaining games at Moody Coliseum: Feb. 2 against Houston, Feb. 6 versus Memphis, Feb. 23 against East Carolina and the finale with Rice on Feb. 27. The Mustangs are 6-3 at home this year and have a .663 winning percentage (511-260) in 57 seasons in Moody Coliseum.
The Mustangs final "home" game on Saturday, March 9, against UTEP will be played at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland.
