Named after legendary UTEP men's basketball coach Don Haskins, the Don Haskins Center is among the top basketball facilities in the Southwest and Conference USA.
Built in 1976, the Haskins Center features a Robbins Bio-Channel Star maple floor, installed in the summer of 2002. The gameday environment for basketball was enhanced in recent years with the addition of new scoreboards and video replay boards in the arena.
The comfy 12,000-seat arena offers fans an intimate view of the action on the court.
