That floor may look good in person but on TV it looks like peeling paint.

One of my lest favorite courts while watching on TV/online is Northern Illinois.

TCU has a pretty cool court.

I've seen a preview of JMU's new one at the new arena and I already hate it.

Washington State has the Seattle Space Needle in its design.


That's funny. I had to check, and it's true. WSU reportedly wanted this court design to be representative of its branch campuses in Everett, Vancouver, the Tri-Cities, and Spokane. That's awesome, very Wazzu.
