Beard - Eaves Coliseum - Opened in 1969 as a home for Auburn Basketball. The arena closed in 2010 to intercollegiate athletics. Known as Memorial Coliseum 1969-1987, Joel H. Eaves Memorial Coliseum 1987-1993.

The coliseum replaced the old Auburn sports arena "the barn" as home to Auburn basketball. During the Sept. 21, 1996 Auburn - LSU football game, the barn caught fire and burned to the ground.

In 2010, the new Auburn Arena opened as home to Auburn Basketball.

Beard - Eaves Coliseum is just south of the new Arena and southwest of Jordan Hare Stadium.

Location - Coliseum Drive, Auburn, Alabama.
