Bucks Go Back to the Future

The Milwaukee Bucks will go back to a floor design with the two giant M's, similar to what they had for parts of the 1970s and '80s (via Uni-Watch).

Meanwhile, the University of Richmond Spiders will shift to a more understated court design, including getting rid of the spider web in the background (via Uni-Watch and Matt Rachmiel).

UPDATE: Here's more on the Bucks' floor (via Uni-Watch).

Latest New Unveilings: UTEP and Binghamton

Court changes for the upcoming college-basketball season are coming fast and furiously. Via the "usual" sources (Matt Rachmiel and Uni-Watch):
  • The UTEP Miners feature large pick-axes in the background of their new court. Fans sitting along either sideline will get to see a pick-axe right-side-up, but that also means they see the other one upside-down. The two pick-axes together form a box-like shape, which I think might distract from the pick-axes.
  • Binghamton University (in the State University of New York system) has a time-lapse video of the painting of its new court (see second video down on the new page that comes up).
