Georgetown Court-Design Contest

Via Uni-Watch, Georgetown University has been holding a contest to re-design its basketball court. Members of the public were invited to submit designs, with the deadline two days ago (May 31). The Georgetown athletics website shows 43 submissions. I can't say that I find any of them superb. You can click on each of the thumbnail versions to enlarge them. If you look at Design 26 (in the seventh row, second one from the left), you'll see that it features larger-than-life images of former coach John Thompson signaling a play to his team. Some of the submissions feature images of Washington, DC landmarks and monuments, but nearby George Washington University already has such a design.
