Previous History[edit]

Home Court for Lamar Cardinals Basketball Team - 1980-1984[edit]

The Beaumont Civic Center was the home court for the Lamar Cardinals basketball men's team for four seasons from 1980-1984. The Cardinals record at the Civic Center was 40-2.[5] [6][7][8][9]

Southland Conference Men's Basketball Tournament - 1981, 1983, 1984[edit]

The Southland Conference men's basketball tournament was held at the Beaumont Civic Center in 1981, 1983, and 1984.[10][11]

The Streak - End of the 80 Game Home Court Winning Streak[edit]

The Lamar Cardinals men's basketball team's eighty (80) game home court winning streak started at McDonald Gym on February 18, 1978. Before the Cardinals moved to their new home at the Beaumont Civic Center, McDonald Gym saw the first thirty-seven (37) straight home wins of the streak. The remaining forty-three (43) straight home court wins of the streak were at the Beaumont Civic Center. When the streak ended on March 10, 1984, the Cardinals were owners of seventh (7th) longest home court winning streak in NCAA history.[12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21] [22]
