You know who’s cleaning up this year? Companies that install basketball flooring. I mean, if a guy who owns a custom wood laminates company doesn’t end up in the Forbes 500 this year, I’ll be shocked.
It makes sense, though. With so many schools changing leagues in the realignment shuffle, new logos have to be painted anyway, so why not refurbish the whole thing?
That’s likely what led Boston University to make the change, as they officially transition from the America East – a league that sent them to the NCAA tournament six times – to the academically prestigious Patriot League.
The Terriers are one of the schools that eschewed giant logos and silhouettes, opting for a classy, simple design in 1,800 seat Case Gym. Here’s a quick Instagram video tour of the shiny new court, courtesy of BU:
