San Jose State's New Basketball Floor Draws National Attention

Oct. 9, 2013

The new San Jose State University basketball floor for the men's and women's teams is the talk everywhere.

Installed by USI Flooring based in Idaho Falls, Idaho, the new floor incorporates the University's move into the Mountain West Conference and features five Spartans with their shields protecting the home floor.

Production took just over three months once the San Jose State University athletics department approved the final design.

The first San Jose State basketball game on the new floor is an October 29 women's exhibition game against William Jessup at 7:00 p.m. The men's team will play its first game on the new floor on November 4 in an exhibition contest against Cal State Monterey Bay at 7:00 p.m.

Take a look at who is chiming in on the new floor.
