Here a new videoboard, there a new videoboard, everywhere a new videoboard. Northwestern is the latest example of schools upgrading scoreboards to enhance the fan experience. Earlier this week, the Wildcats released renderings of the new videoboards at Ryan Field. On Wednesday, it was time to show off the four new HD boards at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
Every Big Ten basketball court will have a different look for the 2011-12 season, whether it be the new B1G logo, the addition of the semi-circle under the basket or the elimination of the women’s 3-point line, but at least a handful have undergone other makeovers. The floors at Illinois’ Assembly Hall, Carver-Haweye Arena, Crisler Arena, Welsh-Ryan Arena and Mackey Arena will feature new looks when the season tips Friday. Watch a feature on Illinois’ new court now and see all the new designs in this post.
