Northwestern Seeks New Court Design

Via Uni Watch, Northwestern University has a page up on Facebook, where it is seeking feedback on four potential new designs for the basketball court at Welsh-Ryan Arena. I think No. 4 would have some potential if the three-point area were more of a gray shade, rather than white. Here's what the current floor looks like.

Bowling Green State (Ohio) to Open New Arena

I recently visited Bowling Green State University in Ohio and saw that the school has a new basketball arena, known as the Stroh Center, set to go into use. Pictures I took of the BGSU campus, including exterior shots of the Stroh Center, are available here. I did a little research on the school's athletics website and learned that the Falcons will have a new court design for basketball in the new building.

Whereas the old court had an orange out-of-bounds area and open keys, the new one will have a brown surrounding area with solid-orange keys.
