DENTON, Texas - The North Texas men's and women's basketball teams, along with Director of Athletics Rick Villarreal cut the ribbon on the brand new Ernie Kuehne Basketball Practice Facility on Saturday morning.
Named in honor of the generous donor and Steering Committee Chairman, Ernie Kuehne, the facility features a new hardwood floor, five goals and locker rooms for both the Mean Green men and women.
Most importantly, the facility gives NT players and coaches a place to call their own, and a practice gym with 24/7 access. Until now, the two teams shared time on the Super Pit floor and at the Ken Bahnsen Center, both of which are often unavailable due to scheduling conflicts with other events.
The Kuehne Basketball Practice Facility is the latest addition to the Mean Green Village, and represents the 10th new athletic facility for North Texas since 2005.
