Plans For JQH Arena

Missouri State University and hotel magnate John Q. Hammons announced plans to build a $60 million on-campus basketball arena that would also host concerts.

JQH Arena is expected to include at least 12,000 seats, 20 private boxes, a private club and other amenities.

Hammons committed $25 million to the project, which will begin construction this fall and is scheduled for completion by November 2008.
