More College Court Updates (Early Dec. 2013)

Four items today:

Temple University eschewed its on-campus Liacouras Center home yesterday to  host Texas at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, home of the 76ers. The regular Wells Fargo Center court is completely outlined in blue, with a 76ers logo at center-court. For the Temple game, however, some floor boards were strategically substituted to make it look like a Temple floor, as seen in the following screen captures from ESPN-U/Watch ESPN... (You can click on the photos to enlarge them.)

As far as these kinds of floor-board substitutions go, this one isn't bad. The only problem is that blue isn't a Temple color.

Mizzou Arena has added Tiger stripes along the baselines to reinforce Missouri's team nickname, as seen in the following screenshot from CBS...

Memphis has added a city skyline aspect to its court at Fedex Forum, based on shellac shading.

Finally, Rhode Island has added an interlocking, two-tone RI to its center-court (thanks to Matt Rachmiel). The two-tone aspect is not unlike that of Penn's "P."
