Kansas University plans on building $17.5 million complex for players.

The rich get richer.

Kansas University is planning on having a $17.5 million apartment complex that houses the men’s and women’s basketball teams. 

“We have one of the very elite basketball programs in the country, and we want to do everything we can to stay there,” KU associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said. “Not only that, we need to, and housing is part of that.”

The key to staying on top is progressing with the times and KU understands that.

“We want to stay in the elite few of college basketball programs,” Marchiony said, “and you have to continue to move forward.”

This will only enhance recruiting in Lawrence.
