Georgia Tech's McCamish Pavilion Opens After $50M Retrofit; New Club Seats Added

GENERATING BUZZ: In Atlanta, Ken Sugiura noted GT's men's basketball game against Tulane Friday night was held "before a sellout crowd of 8,600 that included about 150 former players, coaches and staff." McCamish Pavilion, which "bears almost no resemblance to the Alexander Memorial Coliseum structure that it replaced, crackled with energy" (AJC.com, 11/9). Also in Atlanta, Mark Bradley noted the arena "was nice and bright and, at least for this one night, nearly full." If the arena "comes to house a serious basketball team the redo will have been worth the cost." McCamish gives GT "a momentum it hasn't known since the architects of the run to the 2004 NCAA championship game departed" (AJC.com, 11/9).
