Anchor D Arena Facility Updates

When the OPSU volleyball and basketball seasons resume in the spring of 2021, Aggie athletes and fans will be enjoying games in a newly renovated Anchor D Arena. The biggest improvement is the new floor of Anchor D Arena at Oscar Williams Field House. While there have been surface re-paintings over the years, the new court saw the decades-old boards replaced, as well as a beautiful new paint scheme.

University President, Dr. Tim Faltyn stated, “We hope that these renovations will make a lasting impression for years to come. We cannot wait to host academic, athletic, and community events this coming spring.”

The floor paint is a new design, with the OPSU athletics logo is screened from end-to-end. The Panhandle “P” is emblazoned in blue at midcourt. The baselines and court boundaries are also blue in color. New wall pads and upgraded lighting help highlight the “Home of the Aggies.”

Other improvements include painting of the ceiling in the gym, new LED lighting, and a remodel of the athletic training room. The locker rooms were also renovated and repainted.

Vice President of Operations, Dr. Ryan Blanton stated, “These improvements were a necessity to the overall student and fan experience at the Oscar Williams Field House.”

Interim Athletic Director, Victor Esparza commented, “I’m excited about the look of the new floor, it has been a long time coming. This upgrade has been a great addition to our facility.”
