BULLETS USE OF LOCAL GYM CHALLENGED
Published May 3, 1995
Students at Bowie State Univ. are reportedly upset at the fact that the Bullets pay only $9,000 annually for the use of a gym there as a practice facility and is not open for use when the team is not using it. The maintenance cost to the school is $21,500 and nearly $140,000 in public funds have been spent on repairs. Students argue that the team pay more for the use of the facility. Other schools that have pro teams as practice tenants have much better deals. The Knicks practice at SUNY- Purchase, where they pay $100,000 a year and made a one-time $1M capital improvements investment (David Montgomery, WASHINGTON POST, 5/3).
