Beware of the Phog one of the most well known phrases coming out of Lawrence, Kansas. The "Rock Chalk Chant," ringing through the Booth Family Halls and raising hairs on opposing players arms.

Allen Fieldhouse is renowned throughout the sports scene for its rich tradition and incredible moments. You can look up at the banners and see the names, the numbers, and relive the memories of championships of the past. Rich in tradition ranging from Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain to Danny and "the Miracles" it sets the perfect atmosphere for one of today's NCAA Tournament sites.

Such an icon like Dick Vitale said "...Phog Allen Fieldhouse, which is one of the best environments in all of college basketball..." And the fact that SI.com listed Allen Fieldhosue as one of the Top 10 College Sports Venues it is a real no-brainer that Allen Fieldhouse has deserved a roll if not a bigger role in the NCAA Tournament.
