Oklahoma Basketball recently opened the doors to their new 18,400 square foot, state of the art basketball facility. The Griffin Family Performance Center was made possible by former Sooner great, Blake Griffin. The all-new facility comes on the heels of the team officially switching over to the Jordan Brand. The performance center is the first of its kind within the college basketball with features such as training courts, free weights, indoor turf, outdoor turf with a sandpit, spaces for plyometric and cardiovascular training, cardio and strength testing, locker rooms, an exam and recovery area, a fueling station, a multi-purpose room and overhead fresh-air doors.
“It’s a little overwhelming, I just can’t quite find the words," said Griffin. "It’s something that means a lot to me. It was a great feeling out there for not only me but all the student-athletes. This facility has been a huge success. I have to thank the donors, specifically Tim Headington...he’s been huge in helping build this along with a ton of other donors. I’m glad to be a part of this and it’s something I’m really proud of.”
