While the top 4 AP teams played each other tonight (Kansas/Duke and Kentucky/Sparty), I just started this to avoid having @buzzcut start another thread yet never come back to discuss it. EDIT: Randy Bennett and St. Mary's get as "good" win against a quickly falling Greg Gard Wisconsin team...For now.
First off, thank you to lightning25 (wherever you are) for your basketball court template for Paint. NOTE: THIS SERIES IS FOR MID-MAJOR TEAMS...I think it's time somebody gave them the shine they deserve. #1 St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers To begin with, I picked the Catholic school in a borough I've always been fond of. The St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers are one of two Division I college basketball programs in New York City's largest borough (the other being conference archrival the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds, who meet twice a year in the Battle of Brooklyn). Their current gym, the Lynch Gym at Generoso Pope Physical Education Center (often called "The Pope"), has character, but IMHO is WAY TOO SMALL at a capacity of only 1,200. Therefore, my design had them moving to the Barclays Center for more high-profile games (smaller ones still being at The Pope). As far as the color scheme goes, I stuck with The Pope's pattern (blue sides, red paint), however, I put the "BROOKLYN ST. FRANCIS" wordmark in front and center (similar to the Nets' "Brooklyn New York" logo placement). As for the court, I named it after Dennis McDermott, who played for the Terriers from 1971 until his graduation in 1974, held the team's all-time scoring record, and whose number 22 remains the only retired uniform number in school history. Of course, I didn't want to leave the Terriers part out, so I put the side-facing dog's head inside the paint between the 3-point line and the key. All C&C is greatly appreciated...next up will either be another NEC team or a MAAC team (suggestions welcome).
