Join #OperationBlacktop?

ucf

The University of Central Florida hasn’t had much to celebrate on the basketball court in recent seasons. In the eight years since their last NCAA Tournament appearance, the Knights have gone 147-104 and haven’t finished any higher than 2nd in Conference USA. However, things are looking up for UCF. In his time as head coach, Donnie Jones has gone 42-34 and returned the Knights to post-season play (granted, it was the CBI and NIT, but hey, it’s UCF). Now that the Knights are riding a wave of momentum, they’ve decided to unveil their new basketball court to the world via social media. In a recent tweet, UCF’s Women’s Basketball Coach, Courtney Locke, revealed Operation Blacktop to the world.

Yikes.

Call me old fashioned and out of touch with today’s youth, but I prefer my court to look a tad more traditional. However, if they paint it with chalkboard paint to give it a true playground look, I may change my mind.

    Pretty sick court to be honest. Nice to see some schools changing things up.

    Seriously, let them do their thing. The best part of freedom is that we can do our thing and fly and schools like Tennessee can chose orange and fail.

    My problem is the black is going to make it hard to see the players from the stands in the black area.

    I like it. I would love to see Rupp come up with something new, a parquet court would be awesome.

    I’m old fashioned and out of touch with today’s youth and I think it looks pretty good.

    UCF went to the post season, granted it was the NIT – did they at least win when they went there? Hard to condescend when we were there too.

    I don’t mind the look so much. I wonder how it would affect the players’ feel though. Also, what 10 (I think) was trying to say about seeing the players. I will also say that it looks less like blacktop, and more like playing on a painted acoustic guitar. But it is kinda cool.
