Marriott Center is a 22,700-seat multi-purpose arena of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and is home to the BYU Cougars men's and women's basketball team. It is also used for weekly devotionals and forums.
The Marriott Center was named in honor of J. Willard Marriott, the LDS founder of the Marriott Corporation (and a graduate of BYU's archrival, the University of Utah). When the arena opened in 1971, it replaced the University of Minnesota's Williams Arena as the largest college basketball arena in the United States.
