John Paul Jones Arena

1 of 1
John Paul Jones Arena, or JPJ, is an arena owned by the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. Since its opening in 2006, it serves as the home to the Virginia Cavaliers men's and women's basketball teams, as well as for concerts and other events. With seating for 14,593 fans (nearly twice the capacity of its predecessor, University Hall), John Paul Jones Arena is the largest indoor arena in Virginia and the biggest Atlantic Coast Conference basketball arena located outside of large metropolitan areas.[a] JPJ opened for basketball on November 12, 2006, with Virginia defeating No. 10 ranked Arizona 93–90, handing Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson his first season-opening loss in six years.
