NASHVILLE, Tenn. — As part of a $5 million gift from Seattle-area businessman and Vanderbilt alumnus George B. Huber, BA’79, and his wife Cathy, Vanderbilt’s basketball practice facility underwent extensive upgrades this summer.
“The Hubers’ generosity exemplifies what drives us every day as Commodores—a desire to excel in the classroom and on the court,” men’s basketball head coach Jerry Stackhouse said. “We are humbled and honored to have the Huber name associated with our program and we will work to make them proud of what we will accomplish across all aspects of the Vanderbilt student-athlete experience.”
Originally built in 2002, the practice facility had its latest updates installed beginning in June and completed prior to the campus arrival of the basketball student-athletes Aug. 3.
New aspects of the basketball practice facility include branded paint and graphics throughout the gym, environment-conscious LED lighting and an all-new playing surface.
