I have heard multiple times how we need to upgrade Minges for BkB but

I have never really understood exactly why.

I know the concourse can get crowded at times for entrance/exit/halftime/concessions but it really doesn't seem to be that big of a deal. We also have this issue at football games at certain times but it is unavoidable to a certain extent.

I grew up going to UNC-CH everything as a kid and Kenan as well as the Dean Dome have the same issues, as did Carmichael back in the day.

I went to my first ever (and last) Duke bkb game a few years ago just to experience a game in Cameron and believe me their seating is much more archaic than what we have in Minges and needless to say their bkb program hasn't suffered bc of it. It's actually touted bc of the close confines.

The only thing I think is weird about Minges is how the fans have to halt their exit so the team can leave the floor and go back to the locker room, but that can be seen as a perk for kids to see the players up close and get a high 5 from them.

I honestly don't see Minges as a real detriment for bkb success.
