SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A ’50s-style throwback basketball court with a dark parquet floor and retro scoreboards is the centerpiece of a $19 million indoor athletic complex set to open next month.

The Sanford Pentagon’s 3,250-seat Heritage Court will make its prime-time debut Oct. 10 with an NBA preseason game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Milwaukee Bucks. The arena will soon serve as home for a NBA development league’s Sioux Falls Skyforce.

Sanford Sports Complex General Manager Eric Larsen says the goal was to create a setting that feels like the “Hoosiers”-era. He says when fans walk into the Heritage Court, they’ll feel they’re back in the ’50s or ’60s.

But the Pentagon does boast modern amenities such as two high-def video boards, 12 luxury suites and larger corner game-day suites.
