    "But to me, some of the things we do in our country, I grew up, they were unifying events and it’s a little painful to see that those things are not so right now. But I also respect everyone’s right not to be censored in terms of the way they express their beliefs."

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - McKale Center is getting itself a facelift. This summer, construction crews will work from 5:00 in the morning to 3:00 in the morning tearing down and rebuilding the home of Wildcat basketball, gymnastics, and indoor volleyball all in the hopes of improving both the fan and competitive experience.

For example, there will be new and improved locker suites for women's basketball, more than double the square footage of their old locker room. Brand new flooring and lighting inside Lute and Bobbi Olson court, expanded concession areas and restrooms, not to mention new seating are just some of what's in story for the fans.

The timeline of completion for this $30 million dollar project is quick. The court is to be ready for play when Wildcat volleyball has it's first game September 1st.
