Off the Ice: Creating the Final Four Court

Everyone knows how painstaking it is to create the rink for a Winter Classic/Heritage Classic. But imagine how painstaking it is to create the court for the NCAA Final Four? Connor Sport Court has been the exclusive supplier of basketball courts for the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division i Basketball Championships since 2006. The videos below show a time-lapse of how the courts for the 2010 and the 2012 Final Four are made. One recent signature of the court is at the bottom where the slogan “The Road Ends Here” is painted. Flanked on both sides are the logos of the previous (and future) Final Fours that have been held (or will hold) in the host city. (Indianapolis had previously held the Final Four in 1980, 1991, 1997, 2000, 2006, and 2010, and will hold it again in 2015; New Orleans had previously held the Final Four in 1982, 1987, 1993, and 2003)
