“an indoor arena”
The Hank McCamish Pavilion is an indoor arena located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. It is the home of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets men's basketball and Yellow Jackets women's basketball teams, which represent the Georgia Institute of Technology.The venue previously hosted the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA from 1968–1972 and again from 1997–1999. Tech's women's volleyball team occasionally uses the facility as well, primarily for NCAA tournament games and other matches that draw crowds that would overflow the O'Keefe Gymnasium. HistoryAlexander Memorial ColiseumThe 270ft Alexander Coliseum opened in 1956 at the intersection of 10th Street and Fowler on the northeast end of the Georgia Tech campus. The building was named for William A. Alexander, Georgia Tech's football coach from 1920–1944 and the third athletic director (after John W. Heisman); his tenure as coach included the 1928 Rose Bowl team (the 1928 season, the Rose Bowl itself was played on January 1, 1929.) The huge dome was constructed in a way in which there are no support pillars to obstruct the view of any fans during games. It served as a replacement for the Third Street Gymnasium (later known as the Heisman Gym) on the campus of Georgia Tech, an 1,800 seat arena opened just 18 years before. The arena's original capacity was 6,996 seats, though crowds larger than that sometimes assembled for big games.
