SALT LAKE CITY -- It began four years ago with Ute's men's basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak having lunch with wealthy businessman and philanthropist, John M. Huntsman Senior.

The vision that Huntsman and Krystkowiak brainstormed that day has now become a reality with the University of Utah puting the John M. and Karen Huntsman Basketball Center on display for the first time.

The state of the art facility is equipped with everything to hopefully lure in future recruits to Salt Lake City, and make both the men's and women's basketball teams competitive for years to come. The Utes talked about seeing the fancy digs for the first time, see the video above for details.
