College Park Center to open Wednesday
The University of Texas at Arlington has played basketball on center stage for more than 46 years, according to an Associated Press story published on the CBS News, The Washington Post and The Score websites. The actual stage has played host for the University's basketball and volleyball teams. They are leaving the drama behind and moving to the other side of campus into the 7,000-seat College Park Center. The new $78 million facility — with spacious locker rooms for each team, a state-of-the-art video room with plush leather seats and two practice courts — opens Wednesday night with a men's and women's doubleheader against UTSA.
