Best New Hoopnasium Denver 2004 - Gold Crown Fieldhouse
Call it the House That Hanzlik Built. Ex-Nugget Bill Hanzlik, who co-founded the Gold Crown Foundation in 1986, is justly proud of the Gold Crown Fieldhouse, which opened last fall in Lakewood. Most weekends, its six gyms runneth over with Gold Crown youth basketball teams. The courts are also available to those hardcourt-starved squads that don't have anywhere to practice, thanks to shortsighted budget-cutting by school boards. Fat kids? Not here.
