Cowboys (Football) Stadium for Texas vs. UNC Hoops

The new Dallas Cowboys' football stadium hosted a college basketball game today between defending NCAA men's champion North Carolina and up-and-coming hoops power Texas. The court design was pretty conventional, as shown in this Houston Chronicle slide show. The Cowboys-style stars in the corners added a nice touch, though.

[Previously, I said the game was at Reliant Stadium, home to the NFL's Houston Texans. I have edited the posting to correct this error.]

On a separate matter, I noticed in some ESPN highlights of today's West Virginia at Cleveland State game that the Vikings have a pretty elaborate center-court logo. Here's a screen capture from's archived video of the game.


  1. The CSU court is very unusual for a college court, as it has a wordmark of the school's athletic website. I'm surprised that more schools haven't followed suit.

  2. Alan, the new Arizona court also features a wordmark for the school's athletic site.
