LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Last season John Calipari had an idea for a new locker room at Rupp Arena; he literally made a sketch of what he wanted and they built it.

The locker room features the Final Four floor from the Superdome in New Orleans.

UK says what Rupp Arena was lacking was a place for the players to have a post game meal, training room, and just a lack of space.

All the renovations cost $3.1 million and most of it was paid for by boosters.
