North Dakota State University has received a $10 million gift from Sanford Health to help renovate and expand its aging basketball arena.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota State University has received a $10 million gift from Sanford Health to help renovate and expand its aging basketball arena.

The donation announced Monday will cover nearly one-third of the estimated $32 million project NDSU is planning at Bison Sports Arena. The Sanford Health gift is also the biggest one-time donation the university's development foundation has ever received.

NDSU plans to build a new basketball court and bleachers at Bison Sports Arena, along with a practice gym, an indoor track, larger locker rooms and a new weight training area for athletes. The arena's roof and heating and air conditioning system will also be replaced and two new building entrances constructed.
