The first look at the DeBruce Center, the new home for James Naismith’s original “Rules of Basket Ball,” is here.

The University of Kansas, which will hold a groundbreaking for the project on May 2, released a photo of the new 32,000-square-foot building that will sit just northeast of Allen Fieldhouse.

According to Kansas, the display of the rules of basketball will be “flanked by the stories” of Naismith and Phog Allen.

The center, which will be connected to Allen Fieldhouse via a second-floor concourse, will also feature a student activity center, retail dining, café seating and a new training table setting for both the KU men’s and women’s basketball teams.
