Bob Lanier Court (Reilly Center Arena)


The Reilly Center is the home of St. Bonaventure men’s and women’s basketball throughout the season, while it’s also used as a multi-purpose facility for numerous University and community functions. The Reilly Center was built to take the place of Butler Gym as the home of St. Bonaventure basketball in 1966.

It was originally called the University Center, but was renamed the Reilly Center in 1974, in honor of the late, great basketball and football coach Carroll “Mike” Reilly. This impressive facility is also home to a café, bookstore and a swimming pool.
