    If it helps them get better recruits and brings the bar up for the conference... worth the tourney money in the end.

    From what I hear, WCC swim teams have seen some of that "investment".

    Wow, looks great! It also took me on a nostalgic trip to flickr for the first time in years. My wife and I met on flickr 12 years ago so it has always held a special place for me.

    Looks like a good place to stage the 'Rex Memorial Fight Club'.

    I am old enough to remember when they were private.....when the media and others waited outside or in a press room...now that is old.....these were funded by some generous alumni …..

    Possibly the locker occupants name on the screen (via computer input) along with who knows what other information.

    Well, I feel foolish. Didn't see the logo on the floor. Come to think of it, given the physical limitations of War Memorial, I don't see how they could have converted it into something like this anyway.

    Looks like a cryogenic chamber with a wet bar.

    "The new men's and women's basketball locker rooms are on par with the best in the WCC and our competition nationally," said Director of Athletics Scott Sidwell. "We compete daily in recruiting and this is a huge statement that USF is committed to winning at the highest level. The donors that made these locker rooms a reality with their contributions have helped elevate the expectations for our basketball programs. This is another step in our climb to Higher Ground."

    The project for the locker room renovation began earlier this summer and was completed Wednesday morning, just in time for the 2018-19 season.

    "The commitment to our program and the generosity of our basketball donors means the world to us," said men's basketball's senior guard Frankie Ferrari. "By donating to this locker room project, our fan base is saying they are committing to us and to helping us win. Every athlete wants an opportunity to compete for championships and our upgraded locker rooms will go a long way in helping us compete."

    The answer: $0 NCAA tournament dollars paid for this. Just FYI.

    Not that I would have complained. IMO, NCAA $ should be used to do things to improve basketball programs.
