Beard Eaves Memorial Coliseum

The first week in May is the annual spring cleaning time at our office and my favorite find so far this year has been the program from the first basketball game played at Memorial Coliseum. It’s loaded with gems.

In addition to the Tigers making the move to the 13,000-seat arena from their tiny 2,500-seat crackerbox (the Auburn Sports Arena, aka The Barn), there was added excitement with the return of LSU’s “Pistol” Pete Maravich to the Plains.
