The Ashcroft Center

The Robert J. Ashcroft Center has served as the home for the Evangel athletic department and since 1965. Named for J. Robert Ashcroft, the president of Evangel from 1958 to 1974, the building is the home of Crusader basketball as it was renamed from Evangel Gymnasium in 1986. Seating for 1,200 the original gym seating arrangement contained nearly 1,800 seats, but a renovation to the mezzanine level added chair-back seats on the south side and a video and multifunctional area on the north side. It's arched roof and pointed spires, which reach 43 feet, make it a unique architectural landmark on the university's campus. Routinely producing sellouts, the 1,200 seat Ashcroft Center has long been regarded as one of the loudest buildings with an excellent sports atmosphere in small college sports.
