LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas broke ground Friday on an $18 million facility connected to Allen Fieldhouse that will serve as the permanent home to James Naismith's ''Rules of Basket Ball.''
The 32,000-square-foot DeBruce Center will include a new training table for the Jayhawks' basketball programs, along with an activity center and meeting space that will make the building into a student union for the south part of campus.
The centerpiece, of course, will be a hall featuring the rules of basketball.
Kansas alumnus David Booth purchased the documents on which Naismith recorded the original rules of basketball at auction for $4.3 million in 2010 and offered to display them at the school.
