The next step
An expansion to the O'rena, which opened just 12 years ago, and an added practice facility could be the next step for the Golden Grizzlies, who have done everything they can to raise their stature on the court, most notably this season playing five top-25 teams and beating No. 7 Tennessee.
“If we're going to recruit against these people and we're going to try and beat (major Division I schools), and we're going to raise that level to become a Gonzaga or Butler, then we need the facilities," Kampe told the Detroit News. "We've got the (plans) all drawn up.”
The reports says the long-speculated rennovation would cost $11 million, adding two new practice courts, locker rooms, video rooms and expanded offices. The News went on to say the project would have to be funded by donations.
