located in the Wendt wing of the Reid Athletic Center, has been the home
of the Colgate basketball for the past 34 years, and volleyball for
30 years. The arena was named
for Wesley M. Cotterell, a two-time basketball letterman and member
of the class of 1919, who was a trustee of the University until his
death in 1965. In May 2000, Phase I renovations of Cotterell
Court were completed. The
half million dollar project included fresh paint throughout the
venue, new comfortable VIP chairback seats on the team bench side
and colorful maroon and gray bleachers on the opposite side of the
floor and a new state of the art sound system.
In May of 2001, the floor was resurfaced and painted and a
new rectangular drop down center scoreboard was installed. The
scoreboard is a gift from the Colgate Class of 1950. This completed Phase II renovations.
