to say the current facility is good enough is just plain wrong. It's a high school gym at best. The benefits of having the arena go beyond total attendance, Fairfield hosted the women's tournament this season and will host the men's in a year or two. An arena at 5-6,000 would benefit everyone, not just the school. Teams will not come in to play at Detrick, that is a fact. The floor is old, the seating bad and the overall facility just needs to be replaced.

I dont think the size the facility is is question, It is just so Old. I think the gym was built in the 50s. If you compare the facilities to any other NEC gym (even SHU) Centrals gym gets blown away.That must be tough come recruiting time.

I would agree with you moose, that anything over 5k seats would look like an empty gym, But somthing new is in order.
And hey, if the state is ponying up the dough, CCSU should use it cuz it may not be there anytime soon.

What would the cost be of putting in a new floor (one that can get laid over the existing one) & bleachers? They already put in new bleachers on one side. They could also, put in a floor similar to SHU's. They take that up during the summer, so they can hold fund raising events there.
