If you've ever, by mistake or by design, channel surfed into a University of Oregon basketball game, you know that basketball courts are taking on the potential for a one-of-kind look well beyond corporate logos and team nicknames.
Earlier this year, new Gophers coach Richard Pitino tweeted out a couple of design ideas for the home court at Florida International.
This was one of them:
Redoing our court in a few weeks. This idea came across my desk. I am intrigued. Retweet if you like it! twitter.com/CoachPitinoFIU…— Richard Pitino (@MNCoachPitino) March 18, 2013
The beach-towel look, however, seems to have lost out to something just a bit more subdued.
So should the U turn Pitino loose on a new court design for The Barn?
