Andre Emmett Dream Court getting built in Lubbock

PUBLISHED September 22, 2020 | News

Several groups have come together to build an Andre Emmett Dream Court in West Lubbock.

The basketball court will go at Duran Park, which is located at 26th Street and Kewanee Avenue. The park is near the J.T. & Margaret Talkington Boys & Girls Club.

“I know Andre’s family is very appreciative of the City of Lubbock and the Culver Foundation who stepped up to put this court together in Andre’s name,” Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard said in a statement. “I know personally this would have meant a lot to Andre. He told me all the time he took a lot of pride being from Dallas, Texas but he also took a lot of pride being a Texas Tech graduate. I know this would mean a lot to him personally.”
