Charlotte Hornets point guard Ramon Sessions has donated $1 million toward the development of a basketball practice facility on the University of Nevada campus in Reno, the Wolf Pack athletics department announced Tuesday. Sessions played for Nevada from 2004-2007 before entering the NBA as a second-round draft pick.
The Ramon Sessions Basketball Performance Center will be housed at what is currently the Lombardi Recreation Center. Construction will begin later this year, with the project expected to be completed in August. “This was always a second home for me, a place that gave me a chance when a lot of schools didn’t,” Sessions said in a release on Tuesday. “Coming up as a college kid, we didn’t always have access to a gym.
