Davidson will replace its nearly 10-year-old scoreboards in Belk Arena with new video boards for the 2016-17 season.
The video boards will be 12½ feet tall by 26 feet wide, with LED displays that will include statistics, replays and interactive games for fans. They will be dedicated before the men’s basketball season opener Nov. 12 against Appalachian State. The video boards are a gift of Davidson alumni Cheryle and Joel Williamson and friends of the basketball program.
“Thanks to the generosity of some very dear friends of our basketball program, video boards will be added to Belk Arena,” coach Bob McKillop said in a statement. “This is another big step forward for Davidson Basketball as it will create an even more exciting game atmosphere for our great fans.”
