Damn - wish we'd done that first, that's freakin' sweet. Had me scared that it was all black - the predominant grey color looks boss.
Up close, it's really just the natural wood with a black varnish that picks up the knots and grains. The farther away you get, the blacker it looks.
That looks pretty cool.
When you are standing on the court its pretty bad quality. A darker black color would be better.
Looks a helluva lot better than the one in Eugene.
When I saw the thread title I thought this was gonna look ridiculous because I was expecting a true black court, but the black-tone wood actually looks good. Having said that I still prefer the more traditional look with the just the lane painted. Maybe use this black-tone wood in the lane. Wyoming does something like that (not the black, but a darker tone wood) and I think that looks good.
Wonder what it looks like on TV
Turn on ESPN. They're hosting Louisville right now.
It looks really good.
EDIT: What I'd rather see is the whole court that way with the lanes black. The way it is now with the black lanes, the lighter tone inside the 3-point line, and then the black tone outside the 3-point line that's just too many different colors.
I like it. If they are replacing the floor they also need to design it so Ralphie can do a run before the game. That would get the crowd going.
See, I like that one as well.
Black stain with a herd of buffalo running across in natural wood would be cool.
Pretty sure these courts aren't allowed going forward: this is new in the rulebook this year.
Court Finish. (Rule 1-17.6).
The playing court must be completely finished in a manner that is similar throughout, including the 3-foot area outside each sideline and 6-foot area outside each end line. It is the responsibility of the host game management to ensure that the court is of a consistent finish, including any logos or decals that are legally allowed on the floor.
I don't think that relates to color, but to making sure that the traction is the same throughout regardless of the paint / stain / varnish. Just a guess, though. I could certainly be wrong.
Looks better than I was expecting. Very nice. I would do it!
On ESPN3 (started at 2 MST) is WBB UConn at UCF so you can get to see the floor during a game if you have any interest.
Basketball court looks like ash
I think it looks pretty sweet, but I like traditional finish better.
