The Super Pit

The North Texas Coliseum, better known as The Super Pit, is home to Mean Green men's and women's basketball and to a long and colorful history.

Located at 600 Avenue D, the nickname Super Pit derives from the Coliseum’s predecessor, the Men’s Gym, which was known as the Snake Pit. In 1973, North Texas basketball moved across Highland Street to the Super Pit, trading 5,000 wood-bleacher seats for 10,500 padded, individual seats. The arena was updated in 2013 with a new court and a center-hung scoreboard. Click here for more information on the The Super Pit.

The Pit Crew

The Pit Crew is the official student section at North Texas home basketball games, and it's a big part of the reason that North Texas has such a home-court advantage. The Mean Green's loud and proud students give the Super Pit the reputation of being an intimidating place to play.

The North Texas home crowds have long been a source of rowdy support, from the days when their window-rattling, bleacher-shaking antics helped the old Men's Gymn earn the nickname "Snake Pit" to the days when the chant "Welcome to the Pit" rang out in the Super Pit as Bill Blakely's teams gained a national reputation and a top-20 national ranking.
