A new conference, a new coach and now a new court design.
Northern Kentucky University unveiled a new design on its basketball floor in the BB&T Arena Wednesday. The new design features a Norse ship watermark, with the NKU Norse wordmark in the middle of the ship's sail at center court.
“We wanted a new, fresh look for the court to showcase the Norse brand,” said Athletic Director Ken Bothof. “The Norse ship rising through the sea is meant to serve as a metaphor for the uprising of Northern Kentucky athletics.”
"Northern Kentucky" is written along each baseline, while "Northern Kentucky University" is positioned along the sideline opposite the scorer's table, the University announced.
