In recognition of this gift, K-State will name the athletic field adjacent to the welcome center at Memorial Stadium as the Berney Family Field, and will name the pre-function reception lobby in the basketball training facility as the Berney Family Reception Center.

"This facility will provide a great opportunity for players like me to have a chance to develop at any time of the day and not be limited to only one court. Having the chance to compete with other conference schools not just athletically, but also with our facilities, will help in all aspects of the program."
  -- Jacob Pullen

"I look so forward to seeing the joy and pride in our players eyes each day as they walk into a first class facility comparable with those of our Big 12 peers. But what I am most thrilled about is that our players will have full time access to an awesome and much needed multi-basket court and this facility will open a tremendous door of opportunity for individual player and team development."
  -- Coach Deb Patterson

"We're excitied about this addition to Bramlage and the construction of a practice facility! As a player, having added resources and gym availability will allow my teammates and I to keep improving our game and help the K-State womens' basketball program continue to be a premier women's basketball team."
  -- Brittany Chambers

"This is not just about a building. This is about a once-in-a-generation opportunity to leverage our strengths - a championship heritage and a passionate fan base, coupled with unprecedented national excitement and visibility. This project marks a moment in time that will springboard our basketball programs back into a permanent leadership position in intercollegiate athletics."
  -- A.D. John Currie

"Building a new basketball training facility is yet another way that K-State is moving toward the top 50 of the nation's public universities with the K-State 2025 initiative. I appreciate the leadership of our donors and applaud the innovative thinking of John Currie, our athletics director, and our great head coaches, Frank Martin and Deb Patterson."
  -- President Kirk Schulz

"Kansas State has been blessed with a great basketball coliseum, but it was built as a multi-purpose facility and limited for practice development. NOW, we have the opportunity to add a training facility that will keep the great basketball tradition alive at Kansas State!"
  -- Mr. K-State Ernie Barrett
