    Eamonn Brennan

  6. A new court design that isn't terrible

    Eamonn Brennan

    Late last week, your humble author went on a bit of a court-design rant. The target of ire was silhouettes, specifically the gigantic logo silhouettes college basketball programs have been drenching their new courts in since Oregon unveiled its incre...

  7. Silhouette courts are ruining everything

    Eamonn Brennan

    College basketball courts have gotten a little crazy lately. This is not a new trend, as programs have been looking for ways to boost their brand recognition and mindshare (or something) with increasingly outsized midcourt logos for at least a decade...

  8. Afternoon Links: JMU's court is interesting

    Eamonn Brennan

  10. Cards putting Final Four court to good use

    Eamonn Brennan

    Finding a sentimental, marketable use for the NCAA's would-be discarded Final Four courts is now officially en vogue. The trend began last summer with Kentucky (of course), which last summer received the 2012 Superdome Final Four floor in a donati...

  11. Cal's new court is pretty great

    Eamonn Brennan

    Were you to ask a random sample of college basketball fans which courts are in worst need of a redesign, Cal wouldn't be a common answer. The Bears' court at Haas Pavilion was hardly revolutionary, but that's kind of why it worked. It was simple. In ...

  12. George Washington goes local with court

    Eamonn Brennan

    Fancy silhouetted court designs are all the rage these days and, as with most garish collegiate sports-related designs, we can safely blame Oregon. The Ducks' "Tall Firs" court at Matthew Knight Arena was groundbreaking when it was unveiled two years...

  13. Kentucky's nadir will be brief

    Eamonn Brennan

    Tuesday night was the perfect ending to Kentucky's 2012-13 "Back to Earth" World Tour: an upset loss to Robert Morris in John Calipari's hometown of Moon Township, Pa., punctuated by the first and most fun NIT court-storm I can remember. T...

  14. Where we draw the court-storm line

    Eamonn Brennan

    There was a time in my college hoops writing career -- probably back when I was in college myself, actually -- where I took it upon myself, teller of hard truths, when and why college students could or could not rush the court following the end of a ...

  16. All of a sudden, Notre Dame struggling

    Eamonn Brennan

    But for a neutral-court November loss to St. Joe's, the first two months of Notre Dame's season proceeded in typically impressive fashion. The Irish's nonconference schedule was hardly stacked, but they managed to rack up a few solid wins along the w...
