UNC Weighing Major Renovations To Smith Center, With New Arena An Option
Published November 19, 2013
NOT-SO-MAGIC MARKER: In Chicago, Teddy Greenstein reported the "much-ridiculed purple-stained basketball court" at Northwestern Univ. "will be scrapped after the season." The move is "just one of the enhancements Northwestern officials hope to have in place for next season." The other two are a "new video scoreboard to replace the outdated current model and purple-cushioned chair-backs to replace the bench seating on the side of the court behind the benches." School officials "have yet to finalize funding for the improvements." The new court "likely will have darker purple and a block N, rather than the N logo with a wildcat head." There are "no current plans to renovate the concourses, bathrooms and concessions" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 11/17).
