Looks a lot better than the rendering. Cannot wait to see it open to the public.

That is a hike from the practice court to the locker room. Looks like you go up stair 4, then circle the court/seats to get to the M/W BB offices and locker rooms.

It reminds me of Binghamton. You walk in, and down into the pit where the court is.

Article on the new arena in the school newspaper reveals that the REC (as it will be known) wot be ready until April of 2018, so this will not be the last year of the RAC.

"The Rec"? Begging for abuse, unless you start calling it the Wrecking Yard or something.

Haha, no way.

Our mascot is a canine. The name sounds like Wreck.

The only option is "The Junkyard" with a mean old dog guarding it.

Interesting, the tweet came from a company called Team Services, which specializes in pairing arenas up with naming-rights buyers. That tells me the building won't be called The REC for long.

Looks good so far. They have about 7 months to get it ready for conference play.

I don't know that it'll be ready by mid-November at this point.
