What’s Going On This Weekend?!

The College Basketball Experience
This is not a museum! You will sweat! The College Basketball Experience is a high-energy interactive facility where fans—from the casual to the passionate—of any age can immerse themselves in the game. From skills challenges to capturing your own call of a historic game at the ESPNU Broadcast Desk, you’ll experience college basketball like never before. You can also learn about the legends who have made the game great. Players, coaches, teams, media personalities—basketball wouldn’t be what it is today without the contributions of the fearless visionaries you’ll walk among in the College Basketball Hall of Fame. Visitors 13 and under must be accompanied at all times by an adult 18 or older.
