Agreed and Chisolm Trail Expo isn't any better...wide open and atmosphere is terrible to play playoff basketball in.

I agree with the McAlester Expo Center. Not only because of the distance from the game, but also, if you get in line for the concession line in the 1st qtr, hope you get to get back to your seat by half-time.

Some coaches like places like that because it gives their teams experience shooting on goals with a ton of space behind them, a la State Fair Arena.

Chisholm Trail Expo in Enid.

Seats are a mile from the court.

One concession stand open a mile from the seats.

One door open to get into the place.


It would be a great place for a tractor pull or a rodeo, not HS Basketball.

PLaying in gyms like that are horrible(know from experience) played in the C.T Expo and it was awful. the floor is pieced together and has dead spots everywhere. Those kinds of places are horrible for small school playoffs. They are meant to be played on a building with great atmosphere and loud as ever!!!!

Swish is dead on here. Playing in a place like Chisholm Trail Expo Center is Enid is a very good way to get used to a state fair arena type set-up.
