Texas Showcase (in Dallas)

Yesterday, the American Airlines Center in Dallas hosted a men's college doubleheader, known as The Showcase, pitting Arkansas against Texas A&M, and Gonzaga against Baylor. People in few, if any, states like to display their spirit and symbolism more than Texans, as illustrated on the court below (screenshots from ESPN3.com's video archive).


In keeping with the design of the Texas flag, the left half of the court (from the television perspective) had its entire out-of-bounds area and sides of the key (the area denoting the difference between college and pro keys) in blue. On the right side of the court, these features were split between white and red.
