JPJ has been a key factor, too. It's not just about basketball, either...


But the special events side of JPJ is generating good income for athletics. This was a smart decision Casteen made by insisting the arena could seat over 15K for special events, the required seating threshold for larger acts.

In the last decade, UVA has built/expanded/upgraded, JPJ, Birdwood (several times), Tinsley/Boar's Head, Mem Gym, Welsh Indoor Practice Facility, McCue for football/locker rooms, football practice fields, The Park, Lannigan Field, AFC, etc. There is no shortage of investment going on with UVA Athletics. This is not 15 years ago. UVA is a $100MM+ athletic program and with football under-performing. The only thing we have not built is a new football-only facility. It is in the queue. If constructing that building, NC State, Oregon, and Texas A&M would be the panacea of college football.
