The Raiford G. Trask Coliseum has not only served as the cornerstone of UNC Wilmington’s athletic program, but also as the region’s showpiece since the late 1970's.
The facility seats 6,100 fans for basketball events, with the capacity split between chairback seating above the playing surface and bleacher seating on the floor level.
The arena was officially dedicated on
Nov. 26, 1977, when the UNCW men’s basketball team battled Wake Forest
before a sellout crowd, losing to the nationally-ranked Demon Deacons, 83-79.
It was also the site of the Seahawks’ inaugural Colonial Athletic Association
victory when the team edged George Mason, 66-64, on Jan. 5, 1985.
