Kansas receives gift to fund hoops apartments
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas has received a lead donation from alumni Kent and Missy McCarthy to help finance the first phase of the Fieldhouse Apartments project, which will house basketball players and other students.
The complex is expected to cost $17.5 million and will be built on Naismith Drive, just south of Allen Fieldhouse. The amount of the donation was not disclosed.
The donation was announced during the fifth-ranked Jayhawks’ game against Oklahoma on Monday night.
The apartments will be home to 32 men’s and women’s basketball players and 34 non-athlete students. NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from residing in dorms by themselves.
Kansas coach Bill Self has said the project will give the school a significant recruiting advantage by offering a major upgrade over current student-athlete housing.
