Foster Stevens Center
The latest addition to UTEP's athletic department realm, the Foster Stevens Basketball Center opened in April, 2009. Two lead gifts of $3 million each were pledged by Paul L. Foster and Jeff and Sharon Stevens towards the completion of the facility.
Paul Foster is the President and CEO of Western Refining Inc., and Jeff Stevens is Executive Vice President of the company. The $14.3 million, 43,000-square foot complex features two practice courts, a strength and conditioning center, sports medicine center, academic/film rooms, coaches' offices, locker rooms, equipment room and lounges for the UTEP men's and women's basketball programs.
The building is located on the corner of Mesa Street and Glory Road, adjacent to the Don Haskins Center. The entrance to the facility is a shrine to the 1966 Texas Western College national championship team, complete with a large mural depicting highlights from the record-breaking season.
