The Sanford Health Athletic Complex will open its doors for Bison basketball on November 1, but there will be more than a new hoops team to see. The Hall of Fame and trophy display on the west end of the entrance is finally complete.
Designed by Advent, in consultation with NDSU, the six new displays are enclosed with glass and feature the greatest highlights in NDSU Athletics history. From the pioneers to the national recognition and every championship in between, the most influential moments in NDSU history are finally displayed properly for every Bison fan to see.
Assistant Director of Athletics – Marketing and Fan Engagement Justin Swanson’s Comments
“The new Hall of Fame display at the SHAC does a terrific job of showcasing our incredible athletic history at North Dakota State. From the pioneers in Division II who paved the way in our early days to our recent Division I successes, the tradition and excellence of all of our teams are on display for all of Bison Nation to enjoy.
“Not only does the Hall display national championship trophies and rings, but it highlights the people who helped make this place special. Another unique element is the case detailing our academic successes. Not many places can lay claim to as many academic All-Americans as NDSU. We hold those achievements in as high regard as any successes on the field. It’s a wonderful addition to this incredible facility.”
