Texas ice venue could be Bobby Knight basketball venture

DUNCANVILLE, Texas - A money-losing ice skating venue run by the Dallas Stars is likely to end up in the hands of a youth sports venture bearing the name of Hall of Fame basketball coach Bob Knight.

The hockey team has proposed having the rent reduced at the StarCenter facility in Duncanville. It's one of several such facilities in suburban Dallas. But Duncanville's city council was poised to vote Tuesday to terminate the team's lease.

The city could then pursue a plan to convert the building into the US$1.2 million Bob Knight's Fieldhouse.

Project developer Jimmy Archie says the former Indiana and Texas Tech coach offered his name to the youth basketball-and-volleyball facility because one of his former trainers was behind the idea.

Archie says Knight would have a small ownership interest.
