N. Kentucky to play basketball on a ship in 2015… kind of

The Northern Kentucky Norse men’s basketball team will be playing the 2015-16 college basketball season on a Viking ship. Well, not a literal ship, but a court that has a Viking ship as part of its design.

In the photo above, you can see the new Norse basketball court which was unveiled on Wednesday morning.

“We wanted a new, fresh look for the court to showcase the Norse brand,” school AD Ken Bothof said, via CBS Sports. “The Norse ship rising through the sea is meant to serve as a metaphor for the uprising of Northern Kentucky athletics.”

Props to the Norse for such a unique design and, hey, it could be a lot worse.

The Northern Kentucky court is actually pretty good looking.
