I have long felt our AD does not sufficiently invest in our basketball programs in a way that would assist us in getting both programs to national repsect level. At SC, the football program will always have certain challenges because we play a brutal conference schedule in the toughest league in the nation and our in-state rival is national elite...for now. But basketball I think gives the school an opportunity to win. And our AD does not invest in this program. Dawn Staley deserves it. Frank Martin needs it. Click the link below and watch the video on the basketball practice facility at Tennessee. Hugely impressive amentities. Seperate practice areas for mens and womens teams. SC has nothing that comes close with its practice area set up in the hallowed out arena of a 52 year old building. It is simply not enough. https://utsports.com/facilities/pratt-pavilion/13 Let me be clear....Colonial Life Arena is nice...thought I still think it needs addtions or more bells and whistles. This is not about the arena. It is about the actual practice areas, lounge, weight room, recruiting facilties etc that the players actually use every day. We all thought the practice facility for football was so needed. And it was. So why does Carolina basketball not deserve something similar on a smaller scale. We shouldn't be satisfied with taking a back seat to Tennessee. One could certainly argue we have had more success than they have recently. They have never been to a Final Four. And our womens programs is miles ahead of them.
