Shellac Attack!

Here are two schools that use shellac in opposite ways to darken sections of their respective courts and set up a contrast with the lighter wood. Michigan's floor is predominantly light, but has a darker area between the key and the three-point arc. Alabama's is just the opposite: predominantly an enhanced shade of wood, with the area between the key and arc lighter than the rest.


  1. Alan, the Minnesota Timberwolves also use a shellac design, I think that court's shellac is very dark and very noticeable compared to the 2 courts you have highlighted here.
