Northwestern Wildcat fans will be experiencing Welsh-Ryan arena differently in the 2014-15 season with the addition of four high-definition video displays.

The arena, home to men's and women's basketball, volleyball, and wrestling, will feature a 23-foot-wide display above centercourt that faces the north and south stands. Behind each basket will be two new 25-foot-wide scoreboards.
