Washington Huskies new BB floor

Recommended Posts

The University of Washington unveiled their new BB court today. Not a bad redesign.

That perspective is clearly from Kerry Park on Queen Anne as that is the only photography spot in Seattle where the Space Needle looks like the tallest structure. I would say that is the shot most people associate with the city skyline.

Reminds me of the view from Frasier's apartment, which is not possible for an apartment to have since the only place it has that view is from a park or halfway up a cliff depending on the source. Great court design. Memphis Tigers court would be much better if the skyline didn't extend inside the 3 point lines. This is subtle and well done.

There should be less contrast between stains - make the inner-3-point area and skyline a little more subtle.

Not enough purple.

The amount of purple is fine, the only thing that's wrong is have drastically different the 2 colors of stain are

I miss the days when the key, "the paint" actually had paint. Give me purple UDub.

"The paint" is now "color neutral" these days.

I agree though. A purple lane would be an improvement.

Besides my disdain for skylines, I don't think it's too bad. But why not paint all the way to the bleachers?

I find that stripe of wood on the baseline before the bleachers pretty jarring.

Can somebody mock-up a recoloring with a purple lane? It would be interesting to compare the two. I'm thinking that a purple lane would ruin the cleanliness of the wood, but that's just me.

Not a fan. Skyline seems forced. Just leave it off and call it good.

The skyline seems forced. It's a trend - one I'd like to see go away sooner rather than later.

That said, it doesn't look too bad. I agree that the area inside the perimeter shouldn't be the same stain color as the skyline.

Not a fan... the Seattle skyline, besides the space needle, isn't iconic enough. George Washington did a better job with this concept.

Dark stain can also be interpreted as the dull golden secondary color u-dub uses. Other schools without that color in their palette that go with too dark of a contrasting stain can be criticized more.
