The Bob Devaney Sports Center isn't just getting a facelift. It's getting something close to an extreme makeover with the addition of the new Hendricks Training Complex that promises to be a boon for recruiting for Nebraska men's and women's basketball and Husker wrestling.
The Hendricks Training Complex is named in honor of Tom and Mary Hendricks and their children, Jennifer and Brandon. In donating $10 million to Nebraska Athletics, the Pipe Creek, Texas, family said it wanted to help Nebraska student-athletes compete for championships.
Construction for the Devaney addition is scheduled for completion in August, 2011.
The Devaney Center expansion project includes new basketball courts, dressing rooms and offices for both the Nebraska men's and women's basketball teams, plus new offices and practice areas for the Husker wrestling team.
In a summer Question & Answer series with Huskers.com, Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne discusses the timeline and the scope of the Devaney Center Addition.
