Named in honor of the late Dr. F.C. "Phog" Allen, the Jayhawks' head coach for 39 years, Allen Fieldhouse was dedicated on March 1, 1955, as the Jayhawks defeated Kansas State, 77-66.
This arena’s court was named James Naismith Court after the inventor of basketball, who also was the father of KU basketball. In 2005 the Booth Family Hall of Athletics facility was added on the east side of the venue. A new hardwood floor was added along with a new video board and sound system as well.
By 2007, banners for the retired jerseys and conference and national championships were added to the south rafters which includes those of Wilt Chamberlin, Danny Manning. In addition, a banner honoring Max Falkenstien who was the Jayhawks announcer for over 60 years has been added.
It is a tradition to wave and read the KU newspaper while the opposing teams is brought on to indicate that the fans could care less about their rivals. When one of the players from the other team fouls out, Jayhawk fans wave their arms back and forth to indicate waving wheat and to shoo the player of the court. If the home team has a substantial lead with two minutes to go in the game, the fans slowly start the "Rock Chalk Chant" to further intimidate the losing team.
More than 4000 seats, including many close to the playing floor, are reserved for the students. Allen Fieldhouse hosts approximately 30 home basketball games (men and women combined) each year. The facility is also used for stage shows, major addresses and for commencement ceremonies when there is inclement weather.
