Ed & Rae Schollmaier Basketball Complex
TCU officially dedicated the Ed & Rae Schollmaier Basketball Complex with a ceremony April 2, 2004. The complex reflects TCU's commitment to elevating Horned Frog basketball to national prominence. At a cost of more than $5 million, the facility provides a first-class environment for TCU student-athletes and coaches.
The 22,000-square-foot complex features two NCAA regulation practice courts, office space for both coaching staffs, meeting rooms, a weight room specifically for Horned Frog basketball players, coaches' locker rooms and a lobby. The attractive structure matches the light brick look of TCU's family of athletic venues.
"This building has been a huge asset in the development of our student-athletes," TCU Women's Basketball Head Coach Jeff Mittie said. "We're very appreciative of those individuals who are helping to further our programs."
Ground was broken in July 2003, and the basketball courts were available for use in early March the following year. The practice facility is located just southwest of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum at 3000 Stadium Drive. The two basketball buildings are connected by an enclosed walkway for easy access.
