UD Arena opened its doors for the first time this season Thursday with the Dayton women’s team playing Indianapolis in an exhibition game, showing off the many changes that came in phase two of the three-year, $72 million renovation project. For DeBolt, it’s a holiday of sorts.
“It’s like Christmas morning with your kids, seeing their reaction and all that,” DeBolt said. “You just hope they don’t rip the presents open too fast. So far everything’s been real positive. We’re happy with the comments we’re getting. Just like any opening day, we’ve got a few glitches, but we’re good.”
