courtGeorge Washington University released an image of their newest basketball court and it features some a good amount of D.C. area flair. The drawing of the court features local landmarks such as the White House next to the United States Capitol and the Washington Monument.

According to a press release detailing the new court:

“After our graduating students and student-athletes enjoyed their Commencement ceremony on the National Mall yesterday, unveiling this spectacular new floor design today further emphasizes our campus setting in the heart of D.C.. When people around the world are watching our games, we want them to immediately recognize and understand the university’s unique setting in the middle of the action in this world-class city.”

D.C. Sports Bog also alerted us to the fact that the new court features the use of a hash tag, #RaiseHigh. The NCAA just banned the use of hash tag’s on football fields.
