RUPP CLOSE & PERSONAL: Louisville-based WHAS-CBS' Doug Proffitt reported UK President Eli Capilouto's "vision for UK's future outweighed the prospect of asking the state of Kentucky for more money to invest in a new Rupp Arena." Currently, $1B in new construction at UK "is underway that is all self-financed." The construction includes new student housing and Capilouto said that the school's "priorities of campus, education, service and research meant he couldn't see himself asking the state for millions for the basketball arena." Proffitt noted Capilouto "hopes talks about Rupp Arena continue, but in a private venue -- not publicly" (WHAS-CBS, 7/22).
