GW Basketball Has New Digs: Photos of Smith Center Renovations

George Washington University basketball has been all over the news recently.  Media from around the nation flocked to Foggy Bottom when Kye Allums, a junior on the Colonials' women's basketball team, announced he is a transgender male.  And while Allums is making national headlines, GW's renovations to its arena, the Charles E. Smith Center, has created a buzz throughout the greater Foggy Bottom community.

The arena certainly looks different than it did just a few short years ago.  The renovations cost a whopping $43 million, money that went to giving the facility a face-lift, both inside and out.
