Check out this historical place. The arena just reeks history. Played there in the 70's and have been a fan of this place ever since. Parking can be an issue if you don't like to walk a long way

Tubby Smith bad-mouthed this facility; Richard Pitino loves it. It is a great venue for watching college basketball. Had season tickets for years. Gave them up. Might invest in them again.

While this place sits next to the new football stadium and the newer hockey areana, Williams arena provides a great venue for college basketball with a nostalgic feel. With the raised floor and a raucous student section this is a wonderful place to go watch a game.

I'm one of the biggest Gophers basketball fans there are. Williams Arena is a historic place on the University of Minnesota campus! This is my favorite place to go for a sports event! If you have the chance to go, I recommend it!!

Great historic arena to watch the NCAA Gophers Basketball. While there are some seats with obstructed views, they are few and far between. Good food options as well; Famous Dave's, Subway & Kemp's Ice Cream.
