Any basketball facilities planned anytime soon?
If my fallible memory is correct, some one on this board had stated that some new basketball facilities were going to announced/started during early summer. Our football facilities are becoming comparable with what for example AAC teams have

However IMHO our basketball facilities look worn out and very dated. If we want to attract players and even future coaches - Much less be a leading possibility for possible future expansion. A new practice facility would be highest priority but maybe expensive

Seems funny to stay but I think we need to discuss before football dominates.

Hopefully it will be fall or by end of the year.

Basketball facility is already being worked on. They are renovating the Bell building from what I hear. That is also what Ingram said on his Jox Interview last week. Its not a completely brand new facility but it will be a complete renovation.

I might have misunderstood previous discussions with staff members. I believe the basketball facility will require Board approval. A certain dollar amount has to be raised and then the rest can be funded through bonds.
