Memorial Gym Transformed for C-USA Women’s Basketball Tournament
For the second time in the last three years, Memorial Gym has gone back in time. The old home to Texas Western and UTEP basketball is back in the spotlight this week, and will host 16 teams from C-USA for the Women’s Basketball Tournament. From Tuesday through Thursday, 11 games will be played at Memorial Gym, including the Miners this Thursday at 5pm. The facility, which first opened its doors in 1960, was not ready to host an event this magnitude without making some important changes. A temporary court and two video boards were installed in the gym with the help of the El Paso Sports Commission. Brian Kennedy, who heads up the Sports Commission is thrilled with Memorial’s new look.
