Creighton Announces Proposal for Practice Facility
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Creighton officials have announced plans to build a men's basketball practice facility on the east side of its downtown Omaha campus.
The university said in a statement Tuesday that the proposed building would house men's basketball offices and practice courts, strength-and-conditioning facilities for all student-athletes and the Academic Learning Center.
The project will be paid for by a group of donors.
Officials are considering a new use for the Vinardi Center, the longtime headquarters for the basketball team.
Two site locations near the Ryan Center are being considered for the new facility. Creighton's Board of Trustees must approve the proposal before the design and construction phases begin.
