NCAA Basketball Tournament - First Round - Marquette v South Carolina

Up in Milwaukee, former Duke star and assistant Steve Wojciechowski will soon have a major new asset for his Marquette program: a spectacular, half-billion dollar new arena.

Marquette will share it with the Bucks but it’s a far better place than they ever could have built on their own and they’ve shared arenas since the Mecca so it’s nothing new and is one of the nicer things about Milwaukee sports in a lot of ways.

This article from the Milwaukee paper has some pictures but there are a lot more here and some more here as well.

And while we’ve all seen new arenas, we bet you never considered the necessity of this.

By the way, here’s an article on the history of the Mecca which is still standing although renamed. It’s pretty interesting.
