The first men's basketball game played in Fant-Ewing was on December 1, 1971 against Sam Houston State, who defeated ULM 71–70. The Bearkats' Mike Newell made the first free throw of a two-shot foul with no time left on the clock to the disappointment of an opening night capacity crowd.
During the 2006–07 season, a student-only section was created, named the "Hawk's Nest".
