WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor is moving forward with plans to build a new basketball facility on the banks of Brazos River after a $100 million gift to the university.
Athletic director Mack Rhoades said Tuesday that a portion of the sum from an anonymous donor to a university-wide campaign will provide a significant lead gift for the Baylor Basketball Pavilion. Baylor can now work to secure additional funding and approvals needed to design and build the fieldhouse with an arena of at least 7,000 seats and practice facilities.
There was no immediate timetable provided for the new facility. The Ferrell Center has been the school's basketball home for the past 31 seasons.
