Indiana University's new basketball training complex will be named after billionaire entrepreneur Bill Cook and his wife.
The IU Board of Trustees on Friday approved naming the 67,000-square-foot building Cook Hall in honor of Bill and Gayle Cook
and the Cook Group of companies.
IU athletic director Fred Glass says the Cooks gave $15 million—the single largest gift in IU athletics history—toward
the nearly $20 million basketball training center.
The building, slated to open next month, features mirror image practice courts, locker rooms, coaches' offices and meeting
rooms for each program.
It also includes a "Legacy Court" area that will showcase IU's five national championship trophies and memorabilia
and exhibits extolling the university's rich basketball heritage.
