Oregon’s New Basketball Court

Recently the University of Oregon opened their new basketball coliseum and introduced their new age basketball court. The $237 million dollar Matthew Knight Arena has received major kudos from Oregon fans overall and is without a doubt state of the art. Kilkenny Floor in Matthew Knight Arena on the other hand has not been well received. Television viewers have complained watching a game causes headaches because the court is framed on all sides by a forest of brown trees that reflects an upper level hi-tech ribbon for advertising that changes colors frequently. I’m assuming the court was created in thoughts of being iconic like the “Smurf Turf” at Boise State, but only time will tell if the television audience can actually stomach a game.
