Opening of Fertitta Center

It was a dazzling two-day debut. After committing $60 million to renovate Hofheinz Pavilion, UH opened the modern, 7,100-seat Fertitta Center in November with the induction of UH President Renu Khator and UH System Chairman Tilman Fertitta into the UH Athletics Hall of Honor. The Cougars upset then 18th-ranked Oregon 65-61 in their Fertitta Center debut.
