Hofstra hoops court to be redesigned


In one of the more progressive cultural moves from an area college, Hofstra University recently held a contest to have its basketball court redesigned.

Led by the university’s Office of Athletic Communications, the contest ran through Monday, December 2 and will conclude with finalists being selected by administrators and fans voting on the winning design.

The winning design will be the design used on the court at the Mack Sports Complex starting with the 2014-2015 Hofstra men and women’s basketball seasons.

Hofstra will unveil the finalists on GoHofstra.com and social media outlets for the Hofstra community to see. Finalists will be contacted to complete additional forms before their designs are displayed for voting.

The image above is one of the designs submitted and it’s both eye-catching and classy.
