This panorama of Mackey Arena, taken by James Blakeway, highlights the Purdue Boilermakers men's basketball team playing before a sold-out crowd. Originally opened as Purdue Arena in 1967, it was renamed in 1972 to honor long-time athletics director and Purdue alum Guy "Red" Mackey. The arena seats 14,123 fans and is considered one of the loudest in the nation. The men's basketball program started in 1896, competes in the Big Ten Conference and has won more league championships than any other school in the conference. Established in 1869 in West Lafayette, Indiana, the University today enrolls more than 39,000 students.
