I was thinking UVA could use that arena as a temporary solution


for games until the school decided what it was going to do with U Hall and if it was too expensive to re-configure JPJ as a temporary home. I am curious why you think UVA would build a pavilion specific for ice hockey instead of building a multi-purpose facility (i.e. Verizon Center) for both sports? I do agree it is the logical move to make. The question is based more on the cost perspective of maintaining 2 facilities instead of only 1 during a period when the sport is getting off the ground and probably going from club status to DI status. I am assuming UVA's club team would still exist and just get new players for any that end up on the DI team.
