Just saw the new drawings for Calvin College's new basketball facility and looks really good.  Just wondering what everyone's opinion on best basketball facility in D3 is?

This one's pretty nice.  Its going to host the women's final four in March.

When VanNoord is completed, theres little doubt Hope and Calvin will have two of the nicest facilities in Division 3.  They've definately raised the bar.

Balance? A question for Calvin College: should Calvin, a self-declared primarily academic, liberal arts college, with an enrollment of 4200 and an endowment of approximately 70 million dollars be building a 35 million dollar athletic complex?

It's part of their overall fundraising capital campaign, which also has a component for endowment growth. It's not just for sports teams, either. It's for the entire campus.

This discussion about Calvin piqued my curiosity.

Calvin is #373 on the 2006 NACUBO list.  Their endowment grew by 19% from $69M to $82M in 2006.

I think that they need to add football.  ;)
