SAN DIEGO — The United States International University men's basketball team, without an arena since the 1970s, may get a home next season.
University officials are working on a deal that would allow the Gulls to play at least 15 games at Golden Hall during the 1986-87 season.
"We're still putting the pieces together," said Al Palmiotto, USIU athletic director. "But we're very close to working out a contract. I'm very optimistic and hope that everything will be finalized within two weeks."
Golden Hall, which is in downtown San Diego and used primarily for concerts and theater events, was home for the San Diego Conquistadors, the now-defunct American Basketball Assn. team.
