“For us, Musco was an easy choice. They’re the industry leader in sports lighting. For our collegiate facility, we wanted to make sure it had the best lighting in every aspect and Musco fit the bill for us.”

Sanford Coyote Sports Center at the University of South Dakota opened in 2016 with a LEED Silver rating, a certification that indicates the environmental efficiency of buildings. For the new basketball and volleyball arena’s lighting, it wasn’t a matter of whether LED was the right choice, it was a matter of which LED solution was right. The University ultimately partnered with Musco, due in large part to its special effects capabilities.
