ESPN celebrated Royce-mania today by taking in depth look at his life, chronicling his anxiety, how he almost went to Kentucky, his rise at Iowa State, and the hours he puts in at the Sukup Basketball facility, "the multimillion-dollar building's brick facade and glistening glass belie the cornfields scattered around it. It's a vivid contrast to the surrounding area's rural roots."
Wait, what? Here's an actual shot of the Sukup Basketball Facility.
Here's a shot of construction, taken from the parking lot of the adjacent residential complex (that most ISU students have probably
passed out partied at).
Apparently, Field of Dreams made ESPN believe we could only do sports related things in the middle of cornfields.
