WMG is still publicly listed 5,300 but that was when bench seating filled the gym 35 years ago. It's currently 1,000 less at minimum, and likely about 3,000 capacity after the upstairs west courtside is removed, so Wiki and all other outlets need an update. Otherwise, nice collection of WCC arenas. (Reader comments on bottom.)
I remember my first game watching the Dons as a kid -- 5th grade basketball coaches were USF alums, got to WMG about the season of 1977 when USF was No. 3 in the country, place was so rocking and remember a good win over Pepperdine and some of us youth players got Bill Cartwright's autograph afterwards!!

one of my favorite memories is of my parents each taking me by the hand and walking the campus. i couldn't have been much older than six, the grounds looked so expansive. we walked past wmg and toward the cathedral. i remember seeing some photos of don football players, i think they were located in campion hall, who later died during ww2. place became sacred to me....
