The Hahn Hurst Basketball Practice Center, just east of Cassell Coliseum, is a state-of-the-art practice facility for men and women’s basketball. It includes memorabilia areas, coaches’ and staff offices, two basketball courts, locker rooms, film classrooms, and other amenities that enhance the university’s basketball programs.
The center is named for President-emeritus T. Marshall Hahn Jr., Anne Hahn Hurst, and Marshall Hurst. T. Marshall Hahn Jr. was president from 1962 to 1974 and transformed VPI into a major research university before leaving to help lead Georgia-Pacific. Anne Hahn Hurst, who is President-emeritus Hahn's daughter, and Marshall Hurst, her son and his grandson, as well as Hurst's husband, Leigh Hurst, and mother, Peggy Lee Hahn, both of whom died in 2009, supported the project.
The building was constructed in 2008-09. It was first used Aug. 10, 2009.
