The N ZONE was established in fall of 2004 specifically for our men's basketball team. About 100 members of the N ZONE played a large role in the team finishing undefeated at home 12-0 and a tie for the regular season MAAC championship. We then cheered our team onto a post-season MAAC Tournament Championship and a berth in the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history in 35 years! The season culminated with 25 N ZONE members accompanying the team to Tucson, Arizona for the first round of the NCAA tournament where we battled Oklahoma extremely hard. What an inaugural season for the N ZONE it was!
In 2007 the N ZONE played a key component as we traveled to Connecticut for the MAAC championship tournament where we were victorious. It was three days and nights of basketball! We then traveled to Dayton, Ohio and watched Niagara get its first NCAA Tournament win! From there, we enjoyed a couple days in Chicago where we battled hard with Kansas!
From 2005-2009, the N ZONE has more than tripled in size with over 500 student members being the norm.
The N ZONE is completely dedicated to cheering on other Purple Eagle athletic teams in addition to men's basketball including but not limited to men's hockey, women's basketball, and women's hockey! In the N ZONE you will have an awesome game experience!
