Earlier this week, I took a look at the ugliest court designs in college basketball, which included such wonders as a headache-inducing floor at Oregon and Cal-State Bakersfield’s answer to Boise State’s smurf turf.
In the interest of fairness (to both basketball floor designers and your eyes), here is a list of the 13 best court designs in college basketball.
These certainly aren’t as easy to pick out as the ugly ones, so feel free to give me some pointers below and let me know why your school belongs here. Nevertheless, you have to appreciate these floors for their overall simplicity, effectiveness and aesthetic appeal.
There are no defined rules for making the cut, things such as confining the mid-court logo to something that resembles mid-court certainly won’t hurt (I’m looking at you Kansas).
Without further ado, enjoy.
