Ohio State basketball’s new court should be...

...much more like the classic old look at St. John Arena (see below), but several of the options they threw out to fans as potential replacements to the floor at Value City Arena are an improvement.

I would vote for this one.

I like how the scarlet pops in the center. That makes up for the biggest problem with the well-meaning design of the current court: The outline of the state is too faint.

The idea is good, so let's commit to it! Don't be subliminal about it...

As for my chosen new design, the buckeye leaf in the paint might be too much for some people, but I think it works.

Then of course the last thing to do is get rid of the logo at center court - and take it off everything else while we're at it.

That standard athletics logo is so boring I cant believe it has lasted more than 20 years.

Put a block 'O' at the center and call it a day!
