Northwestern mascot says sad goodbye as Welsh-Ryan gets facelift (VIDEO)

2 Comments

Northwestern is giving Welsh-Ryan Arena a makeover this summer, and one of the major renovations is to get rid of the 1970s-style scoreboard hanging over the center of the court and to replace it with a dual-sided, HD video board.

There will also be video boards paced at the end of the court as well, as you can see in the artist-renderings below.

But before the changes are made, Northwestern’s mascot, Willie the Wildcat, had to say an emotional goodbye.
