TRIBUTE TO SMALL COLLEGE BASKETBALL
The Tribute to Small College Basketball will be a physical structure that will be built within Hy-Vee Arena (formerly known at Kemper Arena) in Kansas City, MO. This will be a unique, first-of-a-kind physical structure that will use advanced technology to pay tribute to – and preserve the history of - the game of basketball at the small college levels.
Through the use of video, sound, light and advanced technology, we will pay tribute to our Hall of Fame Inductees, National Award Winners, National Champions and 1,000-Win Club, plus we’ll include a historical timeline, trivia and physical items that will tell our story. Additionally, we’ll flash back to some of the great moments and great highlights through video, light and photos. The content within the Tribute to Small College Basketball shall be updated on a regular basis.
The renderings of the Tribute to Small College Basketball were created by Slaggie Architects (www.slaggie.com), and it will be built by 3-Axis (www.3axisinc.com). We have a multi-year agreement signed with HyVee Arena to place the Tribute to Small College Basketball within their historic arena. Visiting the Tribute to Small College Basketball shall be free to the public, and tens of thousands of visitors are expected on an annual basis.
This physical structure will be a very visible, public way to tell our story and preserve our history.
