University of Kansas plans to build residence for school's basketball players

The University of Kansas is in the planning stages of a $17.5 million apartment project that would house as many as 32 men’s and women’s basketball players. The Kansas City Star reports that the estimated cost per resident is close to $265,000. By comparison, the university also is building two freshman-focused residence halls to replace McCollum Hall. The estimated cost of that project — $47.8 million — comes out to $68,000 per resident.
