The Lloyd Noble Center is a multi-purpose facility with many uses for the University of Oklahoma and the surrounding community since December 1, 1975. The Center is named after Lloyd Noble who served on the Board of Regents for the University of Oklahoma. As for the arena itself, the 11,000-seat facility has been home to outstanding men's and women's basketball teams. Yet, the Lloyd Noble Center is more than just a place for basketball. The multi-purpose arena has hosted wresting and gymnastic events, and several student banquets and commencements. The Center has also hosted several national touring concerts such as their very own KJ103 radio station's Jingle Jam that features artists such as Bowling for Soup, Vanessa Carlton and Hoobastank.
