Hoop Practice Facility Plans Taking Shape

After several site visits and much consideration and discussion, preliminary diagrams for West Virginia's new basketball facility have been made public.

The new facility, which will likely be located between the red and green gates of the WVU Coliseum, will be a freestanding structure that includes two practice courts, coaches' offices, weight rooms and training areas, and locker rooms.

A firm date for construction has not been set, but pledges for at least part of the total costs have already been received by WVU, and it would not be a surprise to see a ground breaking on the new facility before 2010.
