Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim Court will have a new look this season, as the Orange are set to officially unveil the redesigned hardwood during their annual Orange vs. White scrimmage on Oct. 11.
Naturally, Syracuse’s Block “S” and Jim Boeheim’s signature remain at center court. But the court, which has been predominantly orange since the 2006-07 season, now features blue baselines with “Syracuse” and “Orange” at opposite ends an orange block font.
The sidelines, meanwhile, share design elements with Syracuse’s recently unveiled uniforms and prominently display the program’s retired numbers, including Vic Hanson’s No. 8, Dave Bing’s No. 22, Dwayne ‘Pearl’ Washington’s No. 31, Sherman Douglas’s No. 20, Wilmeth Sidat-Singh’s No. 19, Derrick Coleman’s No. 44, Rony Seikaly’s No. 4, Billy Owens’s No. 30, Billy Gabor’s No. 17, Carmelo Anthony’s No. 15, Louis Orr’s No. 55, Roosevelt Bouie’s No. 50, Dennis DuVal’s No. 22 and Lawrence Moten’s No. 21.
While the off-center numbers immediately stand out, it’s likely the Orange left the right portion empty in hopes — or with plans — of adding more in the near future.
The court is complete with two advertisements for Carrier Corporation, the HVAC company that helped fund the dome in which Syracuse plays its home football and basketball games.
