September 27, 2018

University of Houston Athletics held a media tour Thursday afternoon to showcase the construction progress at the Fertitta Center -- the $60 million home of Houston Cougars men's and women's basketball.

Construction is nearly complete. The first regular season men's basketball game inside Fertitta Center will take place Saturday, December 1, at 8 p.m., when the Coogs host the Oregon Ducks from the Pac-12. ESPN2 will broadcast the game.

The basketball court tiles will be put down Friday (tentatively scheduled for the morning), September 28.

Most of the seats in the Sideline Club area are still wrapped in plastic; however, here's one seat without the plastic. It's located in the corner - on the same side as the Coogs' bench.

Lastly, here's a picture from the Loge Box area which will allow fans to see outside to Cullen Street.
