The gem of the Sports and Recreation Center, the Special Events Pavilion, was named for legendary coach William B. "Red" Reese and is now referred to as Reese Court. Coach Reese amassed an impressive 473 victories against 298 defeats during his 31 years as the combined football, basketball and track coach. Known for his fierce competitiveness, Reese led the Savages from 1930 to 1964. Coach Reese was absent for three years during World War II while he served as physical fitness officer and football coach for the Second Air Force.

Reese court has been home to the Eagle basketball and volleyball teams since the 1975-76 season. Other regularly scheduled events in the facility include:
