Famous maroon band warmup in mccarthy gymnasium


McCarthy Gymnasium is a 3,000 seat multi-purpose arena in Starkville, Mississippi. It opened in 1950. It was home to the Mississippi State University Bulldogs basketball teams until the Humphrey Coliseum opened in 1975. It is currently home to the tennis teams.

It was originally known as the Mississippi State Gymnasium, or the New Gym for short. When it opened, the facility held over 5,000 people. It was renamed for former MSU men's basketball coach James H. "Babe" McCarthy after his death in 1975, shortly after the Bulldogs moved to the Hump.
