ISU Receives New Court and Field

Spring 2011 Issue

The Bengal men's basketball team and the football team now have a new court and turf to play on, thanks to a partnership between Idaho State Athletics, Idaho State University Credit Union and Idaho Central Credit Union.

The official name of the Bengal basketball facility is now Idaho Central Credit Union Court at Holt Arena. Reed Gym will also be called Idaho Central Credit Union Court at Reed Gym.

"Idaho Central Credit Union proudly supports ISU in many ways," ICCU President Kent Oram said. "Over 100 local ICCU employees are either ISU alumni or students. We are proud to support this project and hope it helps ISU in a meaningful way."

The Bengal men's basketball team play a majority of their games in the 8,000 seat arena. Basketball games have been played at Holt since 1970 and ISU currently has a record of 291-125 in games play at Holt.

Through a sponsorship from ISU Credit Union, a new football turf will also be installed in Holt Arena in July.

The new turf system will be a non-permanent surface; one that can be removed from Holt Arena on a regular basis. All though more expensive, the new turf will be safer and higher quality.

"This is great for Idaho State University and ISU Credit Union," ISU Credit Union CEO Rob Taylor said. "It is nice to see it come this point where we can continue with these partnerships in such an important endeavor as this new field. We are proud to contribute to this improvement of Holt Arena by sponsoring the ISU Credit Union Caccia Field."
