Connor Courts: Where NCAA Men's Basketball Champions Play
3 years ago
Every year, stories are made when champions play on the official court of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Tonight, Monday, April 6th, 2015, Wisconsin and Duke will play for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Championship and a champion will be crowned. Wisconsin will be making their first NCAA Championship appearance since 1941.
Wisconsin can see tonight as time to prove they can hang with the big boys on the court. After knocking out Kentucky’s undefeated team last Saturday, Wisconsin may have over come it biggest hurdle in the 2015 NCAA tournament.
Winning a title could be a turning point for Badgers Basketball, but Duke won’t make it easy. Competing for Championship titles is second nature to Duke basketball, who will be paying in its ninth Championship game under Coach K.
Both Duke and Wisconsin will come out tonight ready to leave everything on the court. Just like the teams, Connor Sports is ready to leave it all on the court too. Connor Sports has provided the official court of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Final Four® since 2006. The partnership with the NCAA has helped Connor Sports become the champion of delivering courts for temporary events at sites around the world.
The official court of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Championship began its road to the Final Four in September of 2014. The court was constructed at Connor Sports’ Amasa, Michigan plant and painted by United Services in Idaho Falls, ID. After being completed, the court was transported to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, where Wisconsin and Duke will play tonight.
“We look forward to being a part of March Madness® every year and building the best courts for the NCAA® teams,” said Ron Cerny, President and CEO of Connor Sport Court International.
When the final buzzer sounds at tonight’s game and a champion is crowned, all the excitement will have happened on the official court of the NCAA Final Four. And after the lights dim in Lucas Oil Stadium and the champions leave to celebrate their new title, Connor Sports will be hard at work preserving the official court, where champions play.
Good luck Wisconsin and Duke!
