AMASA, Mich. (CBSDC/AP) — The Michigan-made portable maple court for men’s college basketball’s Final Four is making the trip this week to Atlanta.
Connor Sport Court International says work on the floor began last year.
A truck hauling the floor is scheduled to make stops at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Dalton State in Georgia on Monday. Other Georgia stops are Tuesday at Mercer University, Wednesday at CBA Sports in Norcross and Thursday at Georgia State.
The floor is to arrive Friday at the Georgia Dome for assembly ahead of the Final Four.
The floor is made at Connor Sport Court’s plant in Amasa, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and finished at another location.
The plant also made the court for the women’s Final Four in New Orleans.
