Ray Nacke Court

Resurfaced in 2012, and named after legendary NAIA Hall of Fame basketball coach Ray Nacke, this court is home of the Briar Cliff basketball, volleyball, cheer and dance teams. 

Nacke coached the Briar Cliff men to 22 consecutive winning seasons, and his renowned "Panama Pipeline" of native Panamanian players was featured in a 1981 Sports Illustrated article. Nacke led the fundraising efforts for construction of the Newman Flanagan Center, which houses this court and most of Briar Cliff's athletic offices.
