BUD WALTON'S GOT A HOLE IN IT: Floor damaged by water.
to the basketball court in Walton Arena at the University of Arkansas
on account of "infiltration" of water during heavy rains.
The precise amount of the damage hasn't been determined yet. It comes as Athletic Director Jeff Long seeks — with admitted lack of success — $20 to $25 million to build basketball practice buildings. It's hard to raise money for mediocre teams. Long claims part of the problem is a lack of a practice facility.
You have to wonder about more serious problems in Bud Walton until more is known about why the water leaked into the building.
