USM to name athletic center after Mississippi businessmen

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Mississippi State College Board is expected to approve a request from Southern Miss to name its athletic center The Jim and Thomas Duff Athletic Center.

According to Thursday's IHL agenda, the university wants to name the facility for the two brothers for their $2 million charitable gift to the USM Athletic Department.

Thomas Duff is a 1979 USM graduate with a degree in banking and finance, and both men are entrepreneurs who own several local businesses. An official announcement is expected late Thursday afternoon.
