Go Eagles!


this is the latest i've heard as well.

while it is obviously necessary and regarded as such, it was a staggering price tag

I'm just surprised this would be enough space for an arena

another practice facility makes zero sense to me. maybe it frees up a little bit of a logjam with powers gym but it comes at a big cost. a small building with a fill sized basketball court still will not be cheap.

This wouldn’t be “another practice facility”, Power Gym does not qualify. Presumably what would be built, would be multiple courts, weight room, rehab space, coaches offices, recruiting space, locker rooms, academic space, etc, thus the issues with space and cost. I was at Providence last weekend and had a chance to see parts of their new building, it’s amazingly well done.

Edit: UMass has a nice facility as well ... https://www.jcj.com/project/champions-center-umass-amherst/#item-next
