The West Virginia University (WVU) Coliseum is a venue that has brought Mountaineers together since 1970. It serves as the home of the WVU's men's and women's basketball teams, and is also used as a space for concerts and commencement ceremonies. Among the most historic moments in the Coliseum were the Mountaineers' first game – a 1973 victory over rival Pittsburgh – and the upset of #1 ranked University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels in 1983. The Coliseum holds the retired jerseys of leading players, including the legendary Jerry West (44) and Hot Rod Hundley (33).
