This item is not so much about court design, as about major damage to a court. Via the UniWatch blog, we have some links about the severe flooding of Hilton Coliseum at Iowa State University (you have to scroll pretty far down, once the UniWatch page comes up). Here's a video of the draining of water from the building. I also found this photo montage. Cyclones' women's volleyball has had its entire home schedule moved out of Hilton, but the facility is expected to reopen in time for the women's basketball home opener on November 4. I'm sure I speak for readers of this blog in wishing the people of Ames the speediest possible repairs to any damage suffered to their homes and other property, and in wishing that Hilton Coliseum returns as quickly as possible to being a rockin' basketball venue (screen capture below from this ISU athletics photo gallery).
