NCAA Women's Final Four Court

It's become a given in recent years that the court designs for the NCAA women's Final Four are more colorful and elaborate than the men's design. This year's women's court in San Antonio, which we're now seeing on ESPN during the first semifinal, between Stanford and Oklahoma, certainly does have a lot of color, but I don't know how attractive it is. Here is an online photo gallery from Baylor [link updated], which shows the center-circle area and part of the three-point arcs and free-throw lines. The center logo's color scheme matches that of the Texas state flag, including the white star on blue field. What I don't understand, though, are what look like huge red blobs covering the entire area inside the three-point arcs.
