Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center
Recognizing the need for a new state-of-the-art basketball facility - Syracuse University knew the only way to make this happen would be to identify funding. Through a well placed phone call to famed Coach Jim Boeheim's wife and community powerhouse Julie - Julie was able to call on one her favorite former SU basketball players - Carmelo Anthony. Knowing Carmelo's fondness for his Alma mater - Julie secured a monumental donation from Carmelo.
With funding in a place and a desire to build on the success of their nationally recognized basketball programs, Syracuse University selected King + King to execute and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s design for the new Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center
The center includes two NCAA size basketball practice courts, high-tech training and hydrotherapy rooms, team meeting areas, comfortable locker rooms, coaches’ office suites, a study area, and a Hall of Fame.
