The Al McGuire Center is an arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin which houses the women's volleyball and basketball teams at Marquette University. It also serves as a practice facility for the men's basketball team. It was opened in 2004, replacing the venerable Marquette Gymnasium. The complex is a $31-million athletic facility named for Al McGuire, the legendary coach who led the men's basketball team to an NCAA championship, an NIT title, and 259 victories in 13 seasons. The McGuire Center offers state-of-the-art practice facilities for men's and women's basketball, including strength and conditioning and sports medicine facilities, an academic center for student athletes, and a Marquette Athletics Hall of Fame.
