FIU Might Redesign Their Basketball Court to Look Like a Cheesy Beach Towel
NCAA rules don't explicitly say anything about court design, and schools like Boise State and Oregon State have started to get creative. Apparently FIU is going to take the idea of crazy court designs to its ultimate conclusion.
FIU basketball coach Richard Pitino tweeted out the following potential designs today.
These things look more like beach towels or postcards than, you know, basketball courts.
We'd say something about how potentially headache-inducing it would be to watch basketball played on this court on television, but then we remembered no one watches FIU basketball on television.
As a side note, a couple years back Jake Donahue designed some crazy Boise State-like courts for other teams. He didn't do one for FIU, but did draw up this University of Miami idea. His idea of putting palm fronds on a basketball court in Miami may actually come to pass, albeit slightly less elegantly.
