UK was going to build an entirely new facility on campus that would have been privately funded but the city counter offered with this type of renovation.  After seeing this plan...I'm all for it.

And it doesn't matter who funds it.  It's bad ass.

Funding a basketball project isn't exactly a difficult task in these parts.  This is just one aspect of Mayor Gray's downtown revitalization.

Follow that link for a video of a virtual fly through of the new arena.  Badass is an understatement.  Nicer than any NBA arena by far.

It could also post a lot of bail bonds in Knox County.

Very impessive venue.You have the fanbase to support this and it's money well spent for the revenue it will bring to the city as well.

I doubt there will be many empty seats and this speaks well of your fans.Though I doubt I'll ever see it in person,it would be great to be there for a game when we are more competitive.

Sweet.
