In recent years the offseason has afforded programs the opportunity to undergo a makeover of sorts, whether it’s with new uniforms of the increasingly popular court remodeling. On Thursday Washington joined the ranks, releasing a picture of its new floor at Alaska Airlines Arena. The feature that immediately catches the eye: a silhouette of the Seattle skyline that runs from one baseline to the other.
It’s a very nice design, one that’s simple but does have its own “Washington” touch with the skyline. There’s also the contrasting shades within the three-point arc, with the area inside of the key being a much lighter shade. Washington’s won 946 games in this building, and the hope is that Lorenzo Romar’s squad will be able to return to the NCAA tournament after missing out in each of the last three seasons.
On Thursday night, at the third annual GSU Jam, Hunter broke out the dance moves to the song “Hit The Quan” by iHeart Memphis.
Georgia State went on to defeat No. 3 seed Baylor in the Round of 64, thanks to a game-winning three from Hunter’s son, R.J. That shot made for one of the best moments of March Madness, as Ron Hunter fell of his rolling chair in disbelief.
R.J. Hunter is nowa a rookie with the Boston Celtics. Ron Hunter enters his fifth season with the Panthers.
