Best basketball atmosphere you've ever been in.....


HS: Chaparral vs Arapahoe in the state championship in 2012. Josh Adams tipped one in with his left hand at the buzzer to beat Arapahoe in Coors Event Center. Both schools had massive student attendance. Lewis Palmer (Josh Scott) beat Sierra (Wesley Gordon) in the 4A game right before that. That was a great night there. I also saw Tad Boyle's Greeley Central beat Broomfield in the 1981 title game at CEC.

College: Louisville at Cincinnati in '78 season. Darrell Griffith and the rest of the Doctors of Dunk had multiple dunks in 2nd half to quiet the UC crowd in the most electric game I've ever seen. Both teams balled out and UL pulled out a close win.

Other great college basketball venues I've been to: Rupp Arena, WKU's Diddle Arena, UNM's The Pit (for some NCAA tourney games), Murray St, Indiana St, Vanderbilt (weird floor, but great BB fans).

CEC has been pretty good raucous at times in the Boyle era.
