ASU will host a dining hall named after its first player, Warriors forward Kris Joseph, the school announced Wednesday.
The dining hall will open on Jan. 20.
Joseph was born in Washington state and moved to Arizona after high school to attend the University of Arizona.
The Warriors will host the opening of the dining hall in Arizona, a spokeswoman said.
The Warriors are in the midst of a season-opening stretch for Joseph and a team that has struggled to generate offense.
They’re 1-4 on the road this season, but they’re 2-2 in the finals of the NBA Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors.
The dining hall is a unique addition to ASU and is expected to generate a lot of excitement in the Arizona community.
The ASU Food & Wine program is helping raise money for the project.
