BUFFALO, NY - The University at Buffalo unveiled plans for a new basketball court floor in Alumni Arena on Wednesday.

At the center of the new design is a cutout of New York State, as well as UB's logo.

"As we continue to build on the potential that UB has on a local, regional and national level, this new court design will not only protect the past, but also embrace the tremendous opportunities that New York State provides our institution," UB Director of Athletics Danny White said in a statement on UB's website. "As fans are watching our games in Alumni Arena, we want the message to serve as a reminder that UB is not just a great institution in the city of Buffalo, but it also ranks as the largest and most comprehensive public university in the state and the only Division I FBS program in the SUNY system. With an alumni base that reaches across New York, we felt it was time to capitalize on our status in the Empire State, similar to our peer AAU institutions that compete at the FBS level across the country."

The new floor is expected to be completed sometime in June.
