The University of Buffalo is the latest program to unveil a new, unique court design this offseason.

And if we’re being honest, I love the simplicity of it:

There are no breaking waves or forests or national monuments or anything.

It’s just a basketball court, with the name of the university and a picture of the State of New York. Well done, Buffalo. Here is the statement from the school:

“As we continue to build on the potential that UB has on a local, regional and national level, this new court design will not only protect the past, but also embrace the tremendous opportunities that New York State provides our institution,” UB Director of Athletics Danny White said.  “As fans are watching our games in Alumni Arena, we want the message to serve as a reminder that UB is not just a great institution in the city of Buffalo, but it also ranks as the largest and most comprehensive public university in the state and the only Division I FBS program in the SUNY system. With an alumni base that reaches across New York, we felt it was time to capitalize on our status in the Empire State, similar to our peer AAU institutions that compete at the FBS level across the country.”
