Wow! I already really like the Loyola script logo. I'm glad they changed it form the "L," which was one of the few things in the arena I wasn't a huge fan of. Hopefully they fill in the key with maroon, but I'm really happy with the new look. I'm especially glad they didn't try and do anything crazy.

I hope that actually is the finished product. The subtle Chicago flag tinted into the court is perfect. A statement, but Not over the top.

Your wish has been granted. Nice video by the Athletic Department for the unveiling. https://youtu.be/hA_4w7pNV-M

Question: Does the three point line in the video reflect this years new required three-point line, or is it going to have to be re-done? If so, it’s going to have to overlap on the “A” in Loyola, isn’t it?

Looks like it’s the new distance. If you look in the corners, you see it isn’t rounded, and cuts off at a point similar (in shape) to an NBA line. That was how it looked in the NIT.

Oh nice! That's great news! That would have been a bummer. I was wondering, with the timing, if they had the chance to make the change.

The Court looks awesome! I'm really impressed!

They should have left "Chicago" off the court and painted "The Loyola University" on the floor Instead.

Two thumbs up for this.

It should have been the case long ago but only now has our athletics program(s) been able to justify it.
