WVU Team Theater Among The Best In The Nation

Posted:
MORGANTOWN -

The West Virginia University men's and women's basketball teams have moved into the new practice facility. The final price tag for this new building is around 24 million dollars.

It features many bells and whistles and, as a result, is one of the best facilities in the country.

Numerous other colleges and NBA franchises are making trips to Morgantown for their own look at the facility. They want to get as many ideas as possible for their own future upgrades.

One of the centerpieces of preparation for the Mountaineers is the Team Theater. There are 26 black leather seats with the flying WV logo on them. They also recline and have plenty of leg room in each row for the players and coaches to be comfortable while watching film on their opponents.

This theater features state-of-the-art technology. There is a 110-inch flat screen television at the front of the room. Coaches can draw on the television to diagram plays and more easily show their players what the opponent will try to do to them.

Video Coordinator Josh Eilert will bring his computer into the theater and hook it up to a station in the back corner of the room. Once connected, the computer and television can be controlled through an iPad. 

Click on the video above to get your own look at the Team Theater and a tour of the room from Eilert.
