It was a beautiful facility. Unfortunately, our team got stuck in the basement gym for 3/4 games and it was soooo hot !!! Not good or safe for high energy sports players.

It was a beautiful day and the grounds of the campus and Naismith Green were stunningly green even though a tornado had struck the school and surroundering neighborhood the previous year.
