    I saw this, too
    @GTAthletics: To address the inconsistent appearance of Tech Gold at McCamish Pavilion, we’re unveiling a new color scheme for the court

    Wonder if this changes the ratings for TStan to an A+ if he fixes the court color?

    Yep. The court looks great overall. Very well balanced.

    With the way that the wood is colored, this was really the only way to make the gold not have a green tint. It looks really good to me.

    I blame the court color for our season last year. So clearly we are on the way up this year.

    :D

    So that’s what got the team sick mid year causing that horrendous shooting slump. New season, new look. It’s definitely a sign!

    If you want lazy go back to the late 70's and the court was 2 distinctly different colors on either side of the mid court line. One side dark - one side light.

    Last year was simply getting used to a new color palette which they didn't realize how it would look on the wood floor. Once they saw how it looked on TV they were hung until they had enough time in the offseason to sand and repaint the floor.

    Looks great. No more baby **** green. If they wanted gold in the floor then the wood needed to be a different color. The combination didn’t work.

    Well when you have 2 “primary” colors that don’t stand out from the color of natural hardwood, it’s pretty hard to create a decent looking court. I have no problem with the navy base, and would rather it be navy than look green.
