ROCK CHALK: In Kansas, Gary Bedore reports a proposed $17.5M apartment complex would "house up to 32 Kansas University men’s and women’s basketball players as well as 34 other students." The project will be funded "through a combination of private funds and bond proceeds, the bonds to be paid for by revenue generated by the apartments." Other schools, including Kentucky, have recently "upgraded living quarters for athletes." A dormitory for UK basketball players, which opened in '12, cost $7M to build "and was privately funded" (LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD, 1/9). In K.C., Rustin Dodd writes the KU apartment complex is "another investment designed to keep its basketball program among the nation's best, specifically in the area of recruiting" (K.C. STAR, 1/9).
