Kentucky basketball players have a sweet new locker room.
The long-awaited Marksbury Players First Suite is finished and was unveiled by Kentucky this afternoon.
The project, built in the basement of the Joe Craft Center, has been under construction for a while. Now it’s here and it is impressive.
The suite features tons of technology, including an interactive media wall and a state-of-the-art film room featuring padded seating. There’s also a well-stocked snack and drink bar, hot and cold recovery tubs, private showers and more.

When we envisioned this project, we wanted to create a space that our players could thrive in. Everything they need is in one area with state-of-the-art technology. Thank you to the Marskburys and the Healys for truly making this the gold standard. #PlayersFirst pic.twitter.com/vB9rhg1A2l
