About Adams Event CEnter

The Montana Grizzlies play their games out of the Dahlberg Arena. The arena is a 7,321 seat multi-purpose arena located on the University of Montana campus. The arena first opened 70 years ago in 1953 and was later renovated in 1999. The venue is currently home to the university’s men’s and women’s basketball teams. It is also notable for hosting the Big Sky Conference men’s basketball tournament five times (1978, 1991, 1992, 2000, and 2012).

When the venue first opened, it was named for the then newly retired track coach Harry Adams. In the 1980s, the venue seated over 9,000 and was known as one of the toughest arenas for visiting teams in the Big Sky. It also enjoyed a national reputation for the absolute difficulty and intensity of games played there.

Architecturally speaking, the arena was known for its laminated wood arches that were constructed in Portland, Oregon. And it has an elevation that is approximately 3,200 feet above sea level.

Today, the arena can be configured to seat 5,500 people for traditional staged concerts or it can use all of its seating for a central stage concert event. It has hosted many of the world’s best bands and musicians including Pearl Jam, Grateful Dead, Gym Class Heroes, Rascal Flatts, and Macklemore.

Basketball Team Summary

The Montana Grizzlies men’s basketball and Lady Griz basketball teams represent the University of Montana in college basketball. They compete in the NCAA Division I level as members of the Big Sky Conference. Their home games are played at the Dahlberg Arena located inside the university’s Adams Center.

The name of the arena came from Alumnus and head coach George P Dahlberg who led the team from 1937 to 1955. Dahlberg then retired as athletic director in 1961 and was one of four brothers who were known as “The Four Norseman of Butte” who competed in athletics for the Griz.

The men’s basketball team first played in 1901 and have earned an all time record of 1,348–1,169. The women’s team first took to the court in the 1974-75 season and currently have a stunning all-time record of 897–334.

Basketball Achievements

Both teams have fantastic records and frequent visits to the NCAA postseason tournament. There’s a reason why their home arena was known as one of the most challenging and difficult venues to play in across their history. Even today, the Griz are known as one of the toughest teams to tackle on their home turf.

But to take their achievements into perspective, here’s a brief run down of the team’s performance achievements and records across their history.
