MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ New Kansas State athletic director John Currie says a planned $70 million upgrade of the university's athletic facilities is on hold.

During a forum Monday, Currie told university faculty and students that no projects have been eliminated, but they are all being re-evaluated.

The project included a basketball practice facility, an expanded ticket office, a Kansas State hall of fame and improvements for the west side of Snyder Family Stadium.

Currie says the review was prompted by a struggling economy combined with expenses recently incurred after questionable financial practices by the university's former athletic department officials.
