Just to play devil's advocate here for a minute...
Guess which school was debating the same thing and built a brand-spanking-new 17,000 seat basketball arena b/c the old arena wasn't helping to bring in the talent needed to compete at the next level...?
The answer....South Carolina.... And look how well that plan has worked out for them... They aren't the only example of failure or success to look at as far as this situation is concerned, but there are similarities between the two
Personally i'm on the side of building a new arena and starting fresh.... But i'm just pointing out that just b/c you build it, doesn't mean they will come... Building facilities for Clemson Football is one thing, but building for basketball is a different story... Just saying
