The latest design trend for college basketball, hashtags aside, has been the taking court designs to a new level.
We've documented this fad on the blog before, with Long Beach State and Oregon taking part by putting their native trees on the court. Now George Washington University is taking pride in its city by showcasing historical landmarks on the court floor.
George Washington's athletic department released the design along with a press release Monday in which the White House can be seen with the Capitol building and the Washington Monument on either side.
GW Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero is quoted in the press release saying, "After our graduating students and student-athletes enjoyed their Commencement ceremony on the National Mall yesterday, unveiling this spectacular new floor design today further emphasizes our campus setting in the heart of D.C. When people around the world are watching our games, we want them to immediately recognize and understand the university's unique setting in the middle of the action in this world-class city."
