A new era of Saint Joseph's basketball began in 2009-10, with the opening of the Michael J. Hagan '85 Arena. The culmination of a 16-month project of the expansion and renovation of Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse Hagan Arena has a capacity of 4,200, which is an increase of 1,000 from the Fieldhouse. It has many more amenities to enhance the Saint Joseph's fan experience, while providing the basketball program with a top-notch facility which preserves the homecourt advantage enjoyed for so many years at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse.

Among the amenities now in Hagan Arena are new premium seating section with chair backs; a new upper level concourse with additional restrooms and concession stands; a fully air-conditioned arena; a new will-call entrance as well as additional ticket entrances in the back of the arena; renovated visiting team locker rooms; and an expanded media room.

Michael J. Hagan '85, and his wife, Joyce, are the lead benefactors for the most comprehensive enhancement of athletic facilities in Saint Joseph's history.

"The Arena is spectacular in every way. But the main thing is that the spirit that is Saint Joseph's University has not changed," said Hawk basketball coach Phil Martelli.

Hagan Arena was dedicated on October 17, 2009, with the inaugural game taking place on November 13, 2009, with a 77-67 overtime win over Drexel. The first women's basketball game in Hagan Arena took place on November 21, 2009, as the Hawks defeated UMBC, 77-55.
