Construction has begun on the Hoag Basketball Pavilion, the future practice home of Boston College men's and women's basketball programs.
Anticipated to open in the summer of 2023, the pavilion will be located at the northwest corner of Conte Forum alongside Gabelli Plaza. The 35,700-square-foot facility will include a strength and conditioning center, a sports medicine center, a nutrition center, player locker rooms and lounge area, and a renovated 10,700-square-foot practice gym.
The Hoag Basketball Pavilion is made possible by a $15 million gift from University Trustee Michaela "Mikey" Hoag ’86, chair and founder of Part the Cloud, an Alzheimer's research movement in Silicon Valley that has raised more than $60 million and funds 59 human trials in nine countries, and her husband Jay, a founding general partner of TCV, a venture capital firm based in Menlo Park, Calif. Mikey Hoag also is a founding member of the Council for Women of Boston College.
The Hoags—parents of three children, including 2014 BC alumnus Tim—said in a statement: “It was important to us to support both basketball programs and help position them for success for years to come. The belief we have in the future of both programs under [men’s basketball coach] Earl Grant and [women’s basketball coach] Joanna Bernabei-McNamee's leadership, was a critical factor for us. We feel very fortunate to be able to help future generations of student-athletes improve both on and off the court in this exciting new facility.”
Beginning the week of July 11, traffic along Campanella Way will be re-routed for the duration of the project to accommodate construction. The new route will pass through the Mods parking lot, before reconnecting with Campanella Way in front of the Yawkey Center.
