&'()%*+&%.'/0&0!0"$ Thompson-Boling Arena

Thompson-Boling arena underwent a facelift before the 2007-08 season. This was the first major improvement to Thompson-Boling Arena since it was built in 1987. Funding for the project came from donors to the Campaign for Tennessee Basketball and revenue from premium seating areas such as ThompsonBoling Arena luxury suites and loge seats. The luxury suites include 32 suites in the 300 level of Thompson-Boling Arena, with each suite adjoining a large kitchen and seating area. The luxury suites sold out prior to the 2007-2008 basketball season. Loge seating holds 166 large cushioned side court seats, located directly below the luxury suites in the 200 level. The loge seating has access to a private adjoining hospitality area. Loge seats are available for a $4,000 annual donation and the ticket fee to both Lady Vol and Vol basketball games. Both the Lady Vol and Vol basketball staffs occupy new offices in Thompson-Boling arena, renovated in 2010. The office suites in the arena were expanded to contain seven individual offices, a board room, a film room and editing center, a conference room and a kitchen. The main feature when you enter the Lady Vol office is a magnificent floating trophy case which houses the eight Waterford crystal national championship trophies.

Scoreboard and Electronics

Thompson-Boling Arena offered fans a complete integrated video, scoring and advertising display system for the first time during the 2007-08 season. The multimillion dollar system features the latest in full-color, light emitting diode (LED) display technology for Big Orange basketball. The system is highlighted by a state-of-the-art center-hung display. The focal point of the display features four ProStar® video displays providing high-resolution, crystal clear, live and recorded video and replay. Each of these displays measures approximately 9 feet 6 inches high by 18 feet wide with 10 millimeter (.39 inch) line spacing and is configured in the 16:9 aspect ratio to accommodate the display of high definition (HD) video. Below the video displays, four additional digital displays will inform and entertain fans with full-color animation, game information and statistics. Separating the digital displays are decorative structures identifying and illuminating the Lady Vol logo. Lighting up the top and bottom of the center hung board are ProAd® digital ring displays providing complete message flexibility. In addition to the main center-hung scoreboard, Daktronics LED technology is utilized in six LED ProTable® digital scorer’s tables. The fully digital scorer’s tables have the ability to display realtime team and player statistics, colorful graphics, exciting animation and video clips. These ProTable® displays utilize 10 millimeter (.39 inch) LED pixel pitch for exceptional image clarity and wide-angle viewing. Fans and athletes are informed by four large fixed digit scoring displays mounted in each corner of the arena. Each of these displays measures approximately three feet high by 41 feet wide and offer basic game information. In addition to the scoreboard and jumbotron, all new ribbon boards were added to the arena prior to the 2011-12 season. The boards, which run the perimeter of the arena, give an added element of distinction to the facility. The Thompson-Boling Assembly Center and Arena is one of the largest on-campus arenas in the

It is tradition for graduating Lady Vol basketball players to sign the pillar in the locker room immediately following graduation ceremonies in ThompsonBoling Arena. The signature of every Lady Vol who has completed her eligibility at UT is displayed on the pillar.

OUTLOOK

Upon entering the Tennessee Lady Vol locker room, visitors will be amazed at the 900-square-foot living room and recreation area, easily the centerpiece. This home away from home for the student-athletes includes lounge seating and occasional tables, an enormous projection screen TV for team viewing, along with custom trophy cases. Meanwhile, the recreation area houses a pool table, several video game systems, tables and chairs for studying or eating, a wall-mounted television and yet another custom trophy case. Both of these areas showcase the unparalleled Lady Vol success story from the past to the present with displays containing photos of all eight National Championship teams, every Lady Vol Final Four entry, SEC Championship squads and highlights of the various teams’ visits to the White House. In addition, these rooms feature architectural pilasters of natural oak with brass lettering celebrating Tennessee’s program and its unprecedented eight national crowns. Central to the room is a huge circular support pillar, which is traditionally signed by graduating players immediately after commencement ceremonies on the floor the of spacious Thompson-Boling Arena. One hundred percent of all Lady Vol basketball players who complete their eligibility have graduated or are completing their degree requirements. Another feature to the facility is a 550-square-foot team meeting and film room that includes Regal Cinema seating for the players and a projection screen television. The room also displays the impressive individual honors of current and former team members, along with pictures of UT All-Americans and Olympians -- more than any other school in the country for women’s hoops. In all, UT’s home away from home measures 4,500 square feet. Other spaces featured in these palatial digs include a kitchen with a microwave and wellstocked refrigerator, a guest restroom, manager’s office and a separate area for storage.

./'!!%.'*0&0+# In October 2006, Tennessee Athletics had a ground-breaking ceremony to officially recognize construction on the Pratt Pavilion, the state-of-art basketball practice facility named in UT alumnus Larry F. Pratt’s honor for his $5 million lead gift to the basketball programs. The Pratt Pavilion, which opened in the fall of 2007, houses two full-size gymnasiums, one for each of the men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as space for an athletic training room, a weight room, a film study room and a place to host recruits. “Lady Vol basketball has a history of tradition and success. Pratt Pavilion will help improve an already outstanding basketball program,” said Joan Cronan, women’s athletics director. Directly connected to the arena, Pratt Pavilion has convenient ground level parking. The 70,000-square-foot structure has four short courts within each of the two full-size courts. The facility is equipped with secured practice facilities, spacious locker rooms and recruiting rooms as well. Balconies at the south side of the building overlook the practice courts. The west façade of the building is glassed from the first floor to the second floor, allowing visibility of gallery and display areas from the street. The building itself is a significant additional element to the picturesque south entrance to the University of Tennessee campus. Pratt Pavilion had a total project cost of $16 million, funded entirely through private gifts. Lead donor Pratt’s commitment in April 2006, coupled with leadership gifts from other campaign donors, including Jim Haslam, Brenda Lawson and Robbie Nutt, enabled Tennessee to move forward with the project. This is not Pratt’s first donation. In the 1990s he honored his father Floyd by creating an endowed scholarship in his name as a member of the Nathan Dougherty Society. He also was recognized at the Tennessee vs. Georgia football game in 2003 for a $1 million donation to the STEP-UP Campaign. Pratt, an Athens, Tenn., native, currently resides in McLean, Va. He graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1972 from the college of business and serves as president and CEO of First Savings Mortgage Corporation, the largest private mortgage banker in Washington D.C.

RECORDS

Constructed in the 1930’s, Alumni Gym was the first real home to Pat Summitt’s inaugural Lady Vol team in 1974. The court in the tiny arena (seating 3,000) was the centerpiece of an encircling tri-balcony seating arrangement.

REVIEW

Stokely Athletics Center was the home to the offices of both the Women’s Athletics Department and the Lady Volunteer basketball team from 1976-87. It was formerly home to the Lady Vol volleyball team, which moved its matches to Thompson-Boling Arena in the fall of 2008. Many offices of the Athletics Department are still housed in Stokely, including Athletic Training, Media Relations and Strength Training, as well as several coaching staffs. The Stokely Arena, which is encircled by a four-lane Tartan indoor track, seats 12,700, while the building houses men’s and women’s athletics department offices. The building was originally called the UT Armory Field House in 1958 and seated just more than 7,000 spectators. Through the generosity of the late William B. Stokely, Jr., further construction was completed and on Dec. 1, 1966, the facility was renamed to honor the Stokely family. In 1986, Stokely took on a new look as a wood playing surface replaced the old tartan court. The Horner “Pro King” hardwood was painted with the traditional outline of the state of Tennessee in the center of the floor and the familiar end line markings. The court was special-made for the University by the same manufacturer who supplied the basketball court to the Forum for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games. Stokely Athletics Center was the site of some historic games for the Lady Vols. The first women’s contest played in SAC pitted Tennessee versus Kentucky on Nov. 13, 1976. The Lady Vols not only trounced the Lady Kats, 107-53, but UT’s Patricia Roberts tossed in a Field House record 51 points. Along the way, Tennessee hosted the great gold medalist USSR Olympic Team in 1979, the USA All-Star team in 1979 and the first Southeastern Conference Championships in 1980. The last Lady Vol game in Stokely, before moving to Thompson-Boling Arena, was a 77-61 win over Auburn in the finals of the NCAA Mideast Regionals on March 21, 1987. A week later, the Lady Vols returned to Stokely to celebrate UT’s first NCAA basketball title with thousands of fans in attendance. Although no formal attendance figures were kept prior to 1982, Tennessee mostassuredly was among the nation’s elite in fan support.
