UMD Announces New Basketball Performance Center (BBJ Story)
The University of Maryland's athletic department announced today a new fundraising campaign to construct a 60,000-square-foot, $36 million basketball performance center. The center, which will be entirely funded through private donations, will serve as the home for Maryland's men's and women's basketball programs. It's slated to contain two full-size practice courts, a shared strength and conditioning center, and sports medicine facilities on the first floor, with meeting and office space for coaches and program staff on the second floor. To date, Maryland Athletics has raised $19 million toward the project and today’s announcement marked the public launch of a fundraising campaign to raise the remaining $17 million.
