On Monday, George Washington University released an image of the new court design for the Charles E. Smith Center. The design includes images of The White House flanked by the United States Capitol and the Washington Monument, with the school’s logo at center court.

“After our graduating students and student-athletes enjoyed their Commencement ceremony on the National Mall yesterday, unveiling this spectacular new floor design today further emphasizes our campus setting in the heart of D.C.,” said Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero in a press release. “When people around the world are watching our games, we want them to immediately recognize and understand the university’s unique setting in the middle of the action in this world-class city.”

The released design includes #RaiseHigh. It will be interesting to see how this goes over with the NCAA, who recently banned the use of hashtags on football fields.
