War Memorial Gym Floor Replaced
For the first time since War Memorial Gymnasium opened in 1958, the arena has a new hardwood floor.
“It’s sad to see (the old floor) go, but it shows what we are trying to do here as a program,” said Rex Walters,
USF men’s basetball head coach. “We’re trying to provide our student-athletes with the best facilities possible. War Memorial Gym is a great place for basketball, a great place for tradition, and the fact that we’re making steps to make
our home a better home court excites me.”
Remnants of the original floor are available for purchase. For information, call 415-422-2875 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
