OAKLAND UNVEILS NEW BLACKTOP COURT
Director of Athletics Jeff Konya discusses the new look for the O'rena.
ROCHESTER, Mich. - Oakland University Director of Athletics Jeff Konya sat down with Senior Assistant Athletic Director Scott MacDonald to discuss the new floor that the fans voted over 10,000 times on. The Golden Grizzlies now have the nation's only court that is entirely black.
"What a fantastic court and it came out better than we expected," said Konya. "We had an overwhelming response from Golden Grizzlies nation."
On the floor will be Oakland's hashtag #WearTheBear and where fans can follow the Golden Grizzlies on the official website for athletics and on twitter. The state of Michigan is also outlined on the floor and the stain of the floor resembles an old "blacktop" look. A large contemporary bear head will be at center court.
