MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota has put a practice facility for the men's and women's basketball programs in a priority group of sports projects on campus estimated to cost $190 million.
Athletic director Norwood Teague presented the plan Wednesday to the Board of Regents. He said the money would be raised solely by private funding.
The Gophers play in Williams Arena, which was built in 1928. Teague said any renovations to that building would be in a second phase of athletic facilities development. But the basketball teams have long lobbied for a separate place to practice, with modern amenities to attract recruits.
Also included in the first phase of the plan, to be completed over a six to eight-year span, is an upgraded football practice facility.
