It might just mean new shoes because this one showed up about 15 minutes ago.

All UA tournament teams have those shoes.  Both Twitter accounts for St. Mary's and Mount St. Mary's show the shoes.

Yeah nobody's been talking about it because it's essentially the same exact court system as what they unveiled last season. The courts for the regional rounds, and obviously the court for the Final Four, are the only ones that change from year to year.

I think these are better than the black/blue that is hard to read courts.  Although I still miss the use of the regular arena/college floors.  It makes the viewing much easier, especially in a bar setting, like I will be in for Thursday afternoon.

 

If the same colors are used, here are my predictions...

 

Thursday:

Milwaukee - green (already showing)

Buffalo - red

Orlando - orange

Salt Lake City - purple

 

Friday:

Indianapolis - red. (Already showing)

Sacramento - purple (already showing)

Greenville - green

Tulsa - orange

I'm a pretty big fan of yellow basketball uniforms in general, actually I just love yellow jerseys/ uniforms in all sports come to think of it and I really like UNCW's bright yellow uniforms they wore today:

Hot take: I hate these floors used in the first two rounds. The colors are hideous, and there's just way too much going on between all the colors in the out of bounds area and all the various wood stains in play. And on its own, the March Madness logo is fine, but I'm not a fan of it at center court.

 

All that said, this might be my favorite Final Four court ever. The multi-color wood stain is more palatable when you don't drop a box of Crayolas around the perimeter, I guess.
