The Forgotten Gem: Reynolds Coliseum

Recently, it was announced that Reynolds coliseum, home of the North Carolina State Wolfpack women’s basketball team, will be going through $40 million dollars in major renovations to be completed by the fall of 2016.


William Neal Reynolds Coliseum opened in 1949; Cameron Indoor opened in 1940. The original blue-prints for Reynolds were identical to that of Cameron Indoor Stadium; however, at the urging of head basketball coach, Everett Case the coliseum was expanded to hold 12,400 spectators as opposed to the 9,000 seats of Cameron.


For the next 50 years, led by legendary coaches: Everett Case, Norm Sloan and Jim Valvano. The NC State Wolfpack men's basketball team called Reynolds their home. And in early 1999 the 1974 and 1983 national championship banners and numerous other banners headed off campus to the then Entertainment and Sports Arena (PNC arena).


In May 2005, Reynolds Coliseum was damaged by a small fire. Fortunately, fire damage was minimal, and crews quickly repaired the structure.*


Currently the seating capacity in Reynolds is 9,500 and after renovations which will include the Athletics Walk of Fame, will be reduced to 5,000.


I feel with the addition of first year women’s head basketball coach, Wes Moore and much needed renovations; the forgotten gem will no longer be and should make it somewhat easier to attract recruits to bring their talents to Raleigh and perform on "Kay Yow Court.”
