The Florida International Golden Panthers are “movin’ on up,” from the Sun Belt to Conference USA, next year — and the basketball program is hoping to be looking good while doing it.
Current coach Richard Pitino (yes, the son of Louisville’s Rick) tweeted out this design, which may wind up being FIU’s new home floor.
It would definitely be, errrr, unique. We can already see the school’s new athletic slogans with a court designed to look like a sandy beach with icy blue waters and palm fronds:
FIU basketball: “Where life’s a beach” (Wait, is that good or bad?)
FIU basketball: “Where everything’s beachy”
FIU basketball: “Well, ain’t that a beach” (again, maybe this one’s for their competition)
FIU basketball: “Where every game is like Spring Break” (recruits should like this one)
FIU basketball: “Where beaches and basketball collide”
FIU basketball: “We don’t just play with beach balls all day”
Huge fan of this latest court proposal. Retweet if you agree! twitter.com/CoachPitinoFIU…
