Dartmouth Women's Basketball Facilities

Leede Arena
The 17-time Ivy League Champion Dartmouth women's basketball team plays its home games at Leede Arena, its home since the 1987-88 season. Welcoming elite opponents from all over the nation, the women boast a 179-93 all-time record at Leede, including a 9-3 mark during the 2008-09 season. In Ivy League play, the Big Green has gone 110-41 during that span, going undefeated at 7-0 during the 2008-09 Ivy Championship season. The Big Green has led the Ivy League in attendance for the past eight seasons, averaging 1000+ fans in four of the last seven years and winning the 2009-10 NCAA Pack the House Challenge for the Ivy League.

In 2007, a state-of-the art Bio-Channel Classic maple wood floor was installed on all three of Leede Arena's regulation courts. In the summer of 2010, Leede underwent a facelift when the bleachers were painted green, new banners were hung and a new sound system was installed. Dartmouth also has the distinction of hosting the nation's longest-running women's basketball tournament, hosting the 34th edition (Blue Sky Classic) this December, 2010.

In addition to its locker room adjacent to the arena, the women's basketball team has its own spacious Team Room. While it serves as a place for game-day meetings and strategy, it also features comfortable seating for the entire team, a 50-inch television, video games and study carols.

Dartmouth won the NCAA Pack the House Challenge for the
Ivy League in 2009-10, when 1,619 fans turned out to watch the Big Green defeat Harvard, 45-44 on Jan. 16, 2010

Leede Arena has been the home to 11 of Dartmouth's 17
Ivy Championship teams, including the 17th title-clinching
game in 2009
Dartmouth's team room gives the program an advantage as an ideal meeting space, study and hang-out spot for players
