Tinker Hatfield Designs New Oregon Basketball Court

The man that likely designed your favorite sneaker crosses over to the hardwood, literally. Last Friday Nike and Oregon unveiled the university’s new basketball court designed by Tinker Hatfield. Kilkenny Floor takes inspiration from Matthew Knight whom the arena is named after, the Kilkenny family, and the Tall Firs, the basketball team that won a national championship for Oregon in 1939. “Deep in the Woods” uses a forest theme intended to represent Hatfield’s inspirations and give the team a unique home court advantage.
