It serves as the primary home for LSU men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling, volleyball, and gymnastics. On multiple occasions, it has been used as a host site for the NCAA basketball tournament and the SEC Tournament in multiple sports. The Pete Maravich Assembly Center has also been used to host dozens of concerts.

Where are the Best Places to Sit at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center

For basketball games, sections 103, 104, 113, and 114 are the best places to sit at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. They are located on the lower level and close to mid-court. Likewise, sections 112 and 115 are behind the team benches. Sections 204, 205, 218, and 219 also offer a view from near the middle of the court but with a higher elevation.
