March Madness: 2016 Final Four court design for Houston revealed

The NCAA revealed Friday the official court design for the 2016 Final Four in Houston, which will be played on April 2 and 4 at NRG Stadium.

Using the design elements from the previous rounds, the Final Four look incorporates the classic, yet modern tonal wood flooring, with the logo centered and round information around the court's perimeter. The NCAA honors and celebrates the United States military with the color scheme.

All court designs for the 2016 NCAA tournament reflect the new brand for all 90 NCAA championships beginning with the 2015-16 championship season.

Connor Sports, the official court supplier for the NCAA men's and women's tournaments, will begin installing the floor on Friday, which will take roughly two to four hours to complete.
