Tulsan Donates $6 Million to UK Athletic Department

Joe Craft, president of Tulsa-based Alliance Resource Partners, has pledged $6 million to the University of Kentucky, his alma mater, for the rights to name a new basketball practice facility at the school.

Craft, a Kentucky native, previously donated $3 million toward the 100,000 SF building, but Thursday informed Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart that he planned to double the donation.

The gift is more than double the largest private gift ever for the University of Kentucky Athletics Department.
