McKale Center History

The McKale Center has become a hot spot for catching rim-rocking college basketball action. The facility was originally created to house the University of Arizona Wildcats men's basketball team. The arena is named for former athletic director and coach of all sports at the university, J.F. "Pops" McKale. He was a figure of the university from 1914 to 1957, and served as the head basketball coach of the Wildcats from 1914 to 1921. The iconic athletic director and coach is not only credited with establishing the basketball team at the UA, but he is also credited with helping to establish the school's mascot. After a tough game against a rival school, a local newspaper deemed the men's basketball team "Wildcats." McKale made sure the name stuck and became the school's mascot. The $8 million facility became the home of the UA men's and women's basketball teams in 1973, and has been giving fans a thrilling sports experience ever since. This building has seen many a great game played within its walls, and it continues to be the place to be for Arizona hoops.
