FIU Basketball Getting Crazy New Court?
Is the trend of crazy courts in college basketball about to find its way to FIU?
If coach Richard Pitino’s tweet from Wednesday afternoon is any indication, then yes. Fresh off an 18–14 season in his first year with the Panthers, Pitino posted a picture of a proposed FIU court that’s one of the more ambitious (and better) ones we’ve seen.
Shadows of palm trees are transposed onto a sandy beach. How can you tell it’s a beach? By the highly detailed, ebbing tide painted at the top of the floor just above FIU’s Panthers logo at midcourt.
Another option is the second picture below of the Miami skyline.
This is certainly one way for a young coach aspiring to take a program to new heights to make a statement.
