The last time the Mabee Center had a new arena floor installed, Atari was releasing the hit video game “Pong”, and Apollo 17 was making the final journey to the moon. Just two years later, the ORU Titans Basketball team defeated Louisville in the Sweet 16 of the 1974 NCAA Tournament. Now after standing the test of time for nearly 40 years, Conference & Event Services has completed the historic project to replace the Mabee Center arena floor!
Over the years, some of the world’s most respected icons have performed on the floor of the Mabee Center including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Condoleezza Rice and more! With the installation of the new arena floor, the Mabee Center can now look forward to hosting more great events for years to come!
