  • McGonigle Hall is an athletic facility on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It opened on December 2, 1969, with an upset win over St. John's. The venue served as the home of men's basketball until replaced in 1997 by The Apollo of Temple, a larger facility now known as the Liacouras Center. Temple women's basketball splits games between McGonigle Hall and the Liacouras Center, the gym is also home to Temple women's fencing, women's gymnastics and volleyball. Due to McGonigle's small size, Temple played the majority of its games at the Palestra through 1984, when the school decided to move most of its home games to McGonigle to have a home-court advantage under coach John Chaney. Big Five games were usually played at the Palestra. After the Liacouras Center opened, in 2012, the University completed a $48 million renovation and expansion of Pearson and McGonigle Halls, providing additional classrooms, faculty and coaching staff offices as well as state-of-the-art men's and women's basketball practice facilities. McGonigle Hall was named for Arthur T. McGonigle, a Temple University benefactor, trustee and pretzel magnate from Reading. For basketball events such as selected 1987, 1990, and 1992 Atlantic 10 Conference men's basketball tournament games, its capacity was 3,900. Temple played a "Turn Back the Clock Game" at McGonigle Hall against Bowling Green on December 28, 2009, featuring throwback uniforms and 1980s music, attire, and concession prices. (en)
