W. Basketball Bud Walton Arena Records

The Basketball Palace of Mid-America
At $35 million, Bud Walton Arena was the basketball palace of mid-America in 1993, but in 2008-09 Walton Arena underwent a multi-million dollar renovation of the lower seating area. Along with new reserved seats and floor logos, ribbon boards on the upper concourse and a new message board scorers table help to keep the arena the finest in the Southeastern Conference.

Designed to replicate the intimate and intimidating atmosphere of Barnhill Arena, but accommodate the overwhelming demand for basketball tickets at Arkansas, the result was a fan-friendly 19,200-seat arena whose acoustics focus the roar of the Razorback fans to the floor. Among the other features are over 40 private skyboxes, a lower-level capacity of 12,250 and the furthest seat closer in Walton than the worst seat in 9,000-seat Barnhill.

Arkansas hosted the 1994 NCAA Midwest Regional during Walton Arena’s inaugural season. In 1995, the Razorback women’s basketball team hosted all four rounds of the Preseason Women’s NIT — thanks in large part to the excellent accommodations provided by Bud Walton Arena. It all paled in comparison to the 1999 Women’s NIT as Arkansas hosted all five rounds of the postseason event, including an all-time UA and then WNIT record 14,163 fans for the championship game versus Wisconsin. The 1999 WNIT semifinals and finals alone saw over 23,000 fans attend the two games, helping the Razorbacks to a new all-time attendance record of 77,001 total fans. Arkansas also hosted four rounds of the 2000 WNIT at Walton.
