About the project

This cutting-edge facility serves as a powerful magnet for top-tier talent, marking a significant step up for KSU’s basketball programs. It houses two full-size practice courts, meticulously designed locker rooms, player lounges, and coaching offices. The focus on player well-being is evident in the addition of a 2,500-square-foot weight room, equipped with advanced training equipment, and a state-of-the-art sports medicine center, complete with a hydrotherapy facility.

But the innovation doesn’t stop there. The facility takes a technological leap forward with a dedicated team film room featuring theater-style seating, facilitating in-depth analysis and strategy sessions, while the entrance atrium offers court viewing decks, and offers an ideal setting for donor receptions and recruiting functions, highlighting the university’s commitment to fostering community engagement and attracting the very best talent to its basketball programs.
