The Hornets Nest is a 1,012-seat multi-purpose gymnasium at California State University, Sacramento (Sacramento State) in Sacramento, California. The arena opened in 1955, and is one of the oldest in D-I sports.[1] It is home to the Sacramento State Hornets men's basketball, women's basketball, and women's volleyball teams.

In 2008, Sacramento State named the floor Colberg Court, in honor of 32-year volleyball head coach Debby Colberg, who retired after the 2007 season.[2] The coach with the most career victories in any sport at Sacramento State, Colberg posted an 828-292 record, garnered two national titles and posted winning volleyball seasons in 30 of her 32 years as head coach.
