    That is a pretty cool facility, for sure.

    Spokane has evolved to a point where the city is now dubbed Hooptown USA, alot in part to the success of Gonzaga and the Hoopfest tournament. Every year the NCAA's are held in Spokane, those visiting teams and fans always rave about how well organized and smoothly the Spokane events turn out. A great pride of the city.

    In addition to this facility from Dickau, I believe in 2017 a facility called Built4Ball was put in. Originally, it was a different GU player alum that was the founder, I forget who that was, maybe even Michaelson (?) not sure... But now it's run by Ryan Floyd, and Chris Sarbaugh is Director of Operations. Maybe considered the precursor to Dickau's new place.

    Then of course is The Warehouse.

    Another in the valley, a bit more multi-sport, but always used for the AAU tournaments is The Hub in the Spokane Valley near Liberty Lake.

    For a little city, Spokane has some of the best basketball facilities anywhere.

    I think DD looks authentic, true to who he is. It may also have been a morning news pick up in which everyone is usually disheveled. He speaks and presents well, a credit to GU. No DD criticism on my lawn.

    Article in today’s WSJ about Steph Curry using this same technology to perfect his shot:

    Even though I care a lot about my basketball opinions, they are like comparing a bicycle to a championship motorcycle who is our coach. . ZagsGoZags
