FIU Finishes New Beach-Themed Court
We heard a lot in advance of Florida International’s new “Beach Towel Basketball Court.” A little less than three weeks after speculation first started, the Panthers’ new floor looks to be a finished product.
It is almost identical to the mock-ups that we’ve previously seen. The only difference is that instead of silhouettes of palm trees on either side of the floor, there are renderings of actual palm trees.
With the floor complete, FIU has to take care of three other business matters: 1) Finding a new head coach to lead the Panthers on it (Richard Pitino took the Minnesota job last Wednesday) 2) Making sure FIU’s players don’t get distracted with thoughts of going to an actual beach while playing on it and 3) Building the ridiculous cabanas on one end of the court.
