Texas Tech breaks ground on Womble Basketball Center

LUBBOCK - Texas Tech hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Friday afternoon to commence construction on the Dustin R. Womble Basketball Center in the City Bank Room of United Supermarkets Arena. This facility is another milestone for The Campaign for Fearless Champions.

“We look forward to breaking ground on what will be one of the premier basketball facilities in the country,” Hocutt said. “This will be a great day to look into our future and what this facility will provide for our men’s and women’s basketball student-athletes. It is also a great opportunity to thank the Womble family and the many others who have generously supported this project.”

Both the Texas Tech men’s and women’s basketball programs will move their day-to-day operations to the Womble Basketball Center following its completion. It will also house coaches' offices, athletic training facilities and strength and conditioning areas for both programs.

The Womble Basketball Center represents another success of The Campaign for Fearless Champions, which has revitalized Texas Tech’s athletic facilities through philanthropic gifts. The campaign has already been responsible for the state-of-the-art Sports Performance Center that opened in the fall of 2017 along with renovations to United Supermarkets Arena and Jones AT&T Stadium.
