Sherman Gymnasium

Sherman Gymnasium is named in honor of Illinois College alumnus Herb Sherman ’58, in memory of his parents, Armond and Minnie Sherman. Sherman Gymnasium is the home for IC men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball. The court at Sherman Gymnasium is named Bill Merris Court in honor of the long-time head men’s basketball coach and former athletic director. The gymnasium has a seating capacity of 1,576 and includes standing room areas on all upper levels.

The Green Training Room, named for Dr. James '61 and Cathy Green, is located on the east side of the court and is available to all student-athletes.

A historic moment in Sherman Gymnasium history occurred on November 11, 2013, when the men's basketball team took on the Grinnell Pioneers in a game that was nationally televised on ESPN3.


King Fieldhouse

King Fieldhouse is the most widely-used facility by the Illinois College athletic department, as it not only serves as the home for IC indoor track & field, but it is also used as a practice facility for all teams during inclement weather. Four rubberized courts and two batting cages are available for use within the facility. King Fieldhouse is used during the winter months of the school year for intramural events as well.
