Steps from the university's famed Assembly Hall, this state-of-the-art facility serves as the new daily headquarters for Hoosier men's and women's basketball. Inside are two full-size practice courts, strength and conditioning rooms, coaches' offices and video suites as well as a shrine and legacy court where visitors can learn all about the proud history of Indiana basketball.
Dramatic cast-in-place concrete arches give Cook Hall its distinctive silhouette. Each 270-foot span contains more than 800 yards of 6,000-psi concrete. Practice court floors were laid with a 4,000-psi mix enhanced with steel and polypropylene fibers to minimize cracking and curling. Colored concrete in Indiana Beige enhances interior walkways, and in the parking lot, sections of pervious concrete channel storm water into a specially designed drainage system.
