Rutgers goes all red with newly painted court

Rutgers has a new court design to go along with its new coach at the helm for the men's team as the Scarlet Knights try to turn a new page in 2016 coming off a 7-25 season.

The new shade of red also appears to be darker than that seen on the original court.
