Griffin Family Performance Center
The Griffin Family Performance Center is one of the first of its kind among the nation's collegiate basketball programs. A building that serves to meet the growing needs of strength performance in college basketball, the newly-opened facility is located adjacent to the men's and women's practice gyms at Lloyd Noble Center.
Some of the many features of the 18,000-gross-sqaure foot training center include basketball training courts, free weights, indoor and outdoor turfs, spaces for plyometric and cardiovascular training, cardio and strength testing, locker rooms, an exam and recovery area, a fueling station and a multi-purpose room.
Former Sooner basketball player and 2009 Naismith Player of the Year Blake Griffin played a major role in the project's funding.
"Being a Sooner is more than just what you do in competition," Griffin said. "I am thankful to have had the opportunity to play OU basketball, which has a legacy of people that have made it great. College is such a critical time in an athlete's playing career and it's my honor to help give the men's and women's teams the resources and technology that will give them the best opportunity to succeed. I am humbled that OU has chosen to name this facility after me, and I am really excited to see this high-performance training center come to life."
