"It's incredibly functional, yet classily done," said U of L sports information director Kenny Klein.

"This gives us a big advantage," David Padgett said. "We spend countless hours here. I can't believe how well this turned out."


All the doors in the basketball area, as David Padgett pointed out during the tour, are 8 feet tall.

The basketball training room contains both hot and cold tubs. The cold tub Tuesday afternoon was set at a chilly 59 degrees.

With the new facility now open, men's and women's basketball and the volleyball team each have their own practice facilities. Before the Yum! Center opened, those three programs were forced to share the same practice facility at Cardinal Arena.

Inside the Yum! Center are separate offices, locker and training rooms and practice facilities for men's basketball, volleyball and lacrosse.
