The Arena compares favorably with many of the state college arenas. In fact, the Pantherettes have brought seven state championships to the city of Duncanville (City of Champions) a city resting on the southern lip of Dallas. The arena features comfortable chairs, improved lightning, and easy to read stat boards at each end of the court. The athletic complex houses the arena and two competition gyms. All tournament games are held in the complex. Complete training facilities are on site.

In 2004, the arena was named by USA Today as one of the top ten best high school places to play high school basketball in the nation. The arena is named for the legendary girl’s coach who won 906 games in four state championships during her career.
