Hulman Center at Indiana State University will have a new scoreboard and high resolution video boards thanks to the Hulman-George family. The family gave ISU $2 million to help cover the expense of the boards inside the recently-renovated sports venue.
A $50 million renovation of the Hulman Center was completed in 2020.
“Over the past 50 years, great memories have been created, and the recent renovations will ensure another 50 years of guest experiences enjoyed,” said Tony George. “We are happy to provide support for the information and communications system that will enhance the experience for all who attend events at the Hulman Center.”
ISU intends to have two hanging video boards measuring more than 14 by 24 feet and two hanging boards measuring more than 9 by 16 feet.
Plans also call for the installation of new boards above the floor-level openings at the four corners of the arena. There will also be two new scorer’s tables with video boards in front.
“This generous gift by the George family showcases the commitment and priority that the university has toward Indiana State men’s and women’s basketball and athletics as a whole,” said ISU Athletic Director Sherard Clinkscales, who adds the new video boards will “help create a fantastic environment for our home games in the future.”
The boards are expected to be operational in spring or early summer, replacing the current system which has been used for 13 years.
The project is being handled by South Dakota-based Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq: DAKT).
