Task Force to Renovate Rupp Arena

The option of reinventing Rupp Arena rather than constructing a new arena in downtown Lexington gained a convert Tuesday. Builder Ray Ball, a member of a task force charged with recommending a future home for University of Kentucky basketball, came away from a Tuesday morning tour of Madison Square Garden convinced that renovation is a good option for Lexington and UK to pursue. "I personally believe that is the direction that makes the most sense," Ball said.
