West Virginia plans to redesign its basketball court at WVU Coliseum, according to EerSports.com’s Mike Casazza.
The new floor will be designed in-house through the Mountaineers’ athletics department.
West Virginia’s current floor design is sleek and simple, but athletics director Shane Lyons says the change will be “cool,” yet nothing “radical.”
“Are we going to do any crazy design like Oregon and some other courts? Probably not,” he said. “We’ll go with more traditional ideas, but there will be a new look to the floor. It’ll still be gold and blue but nothing too crazy. It may be just a matter of doing a bigger Flying WV in the center, but there may be some other things.”
Small adjustments were made to West Virginia’s floor in recent years, but they’ve mostly revolved around conference branding.
WVU Coliseum will also feature a new scoreboard in the coming years, according to the report. The changes are a part of a department-wide makeover for its facilities.
The 14,000-seat arena first opened on Dec. 1, 1970. West Virginia men’s basketball owns an all-time record of 539-153 at the venue.
