WICHITA, Kansas -- The Wichita State men's basketball locker rooms will get a complete overhaul thanks to a donation from a Shocker alumnus.
The alum has donated $250,000 for the renovation.
"The individual who has generously provided the funding for this project is an extraordinarily successful alumnus who lives in another state, but follows Shocker men's basketball faithfully," said Elizabeth King, president and CEO of the WSU Foundation, in a press release. "He's a winner, both personally and professionally, and he appreciates the effort Coach Marshall and his coaching staff devote to making ours a winning program."
A school spokesperson says the men's locker rooms have not been completely renovated since 2003.
The renovation includes new carpet, a Final Four theme and a trophy case which will hold the Regional Championship trophy the Shockers won this year. Plus, each locker will have an iPad dock.
"It is our responsibility to our programs and our athletes to be on the cutting edge in every fashion possible," said WSU Athletic Director Eric Sexton in a press release. "Recruiting is a facility arms race. We are fortunate to have the financial support that we have to utilize in keeping up and hopefully setting the bar, and look forward to also renovating our additional team locker rooms in Charles Koch Arena."
The work is scheduled to be finished by the end of summer.
