Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades said the school is discussing future renovations for the Ferrell Center or potentially a new home for Baylor men’s and women’s basketball.
Improving Baylor basketball’s facilities are a priority for the university, Rhoades told ESPN Central Texas during his weekly segment on Tuesday.
“There’s no question that the Ferrell Center or our basketball game-day facility needs to be improved. We’ve talked about it whether that’s a renovation or something brand new. That’s certainly on the horizon, and it’s a priority for us that we’ve got to address it.” Rhoades said.
The Ferrell Center opened in 1988 and cost $12.5 million for construction. It currently seats 10,284 for basketball games, 6,000 for volleyball and 12,000 for concerts. The men’s basketball team is 297-151 at the Ferrell Center, while the women’s team is 333-96.
It is uncertain how quickly Baylor will move on improving its basketball game-day experience, but those discussions are taking place as the university tries to revamp its home for hoops or move elsewhere.
