Razorbacks to build $25M practice facility
Arkansas has announced it will begin construction of a $25 million basketball practice facility next month.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas has announced it will begin construction of a $25 million basketball practice facility next month.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the 65,000-square-foot facility will be held on Dec. 7, and it is scheduled to open in the summer of 2015. It will hold the workout facilities, offices and all other basketball operations for both the Razorbacks men's and women's teams.
Athletic director Jeff Long has talked extensively over the last year about the school's need for a practice facility, citing difficulties scheduling practice time in Bud Walton Arena and saying Arkansas is the only Southeastern Conference school without one.
Long says the school is still in the process of raising the money needed.
