Q: Dom, Is UConn still on schedule to break ground on the basketball facility this spring? Has UConn raised the all the funds necessary for construction?
A: Chris, UConn has the funds it needs, by law, to begin construction and that is supposed to happen this spring, when the weather permits. I’ve heard it could be ready – if not totally completed – ready for some use as early as the fall of 2014, or about a year and a half, if things go on schedule. I doubt they have actually raised all the money needed to finish it just yet, but once they start construction, it means no one is worried, at that point, about getting the funds to complete it. So, at this point, it’s all a ‘go.’
