IMS: Maryland Quietly Moving Forward on Basketball Practice Facility

 

A group of Maryland basketball supporters is moving forward with plans for a dedicated practice facility for the program, sources told IMS.

 
The group, which included former Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams, has begun a "soft" round of fundraising and commissioned blueprints for the facility, which is expected to cost in the neighborhood of $35 million and will be built onto the main entrance to Maryland's Xfinity Center arena, on the Southeast side. Although the school is unlikely to officially announce plans for the project until it receives roughly $20 million in commitments from private donors, it's quietly becoming a reality, with around $8 million already pledged and more large pledges expected.

The boosters keep writing checks.

Their facilities are really becoming top quality.

Maryland announced the construction of a $36M Basketball Performance Center today. It will be located adjacent to the XFINITY Center, and provide practice and programming spaces, as well as a large strength and conditioning center. There will be two separate practice courts, as well as brand new locker rooms for both the men's and women's basketball programs.
 
This will also allow XFINITY Center to host concerts in the future.
