Update: William R. Johnson Coliseum remodel

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - For the first time in 40 years, the wood at the William R. Johnson Coliseum has been stripped of it's original setting.

Stephen F. Austin Board of Regents members approved the project to be done for less than $400,000. The original floor was taken up in May and has been coming along as scheduled.

The court will be outlined in purple and each base line will read "Stephen F. Austin." The SFA logo including the state of Texas has been placed in the center.

The court will also be two-toned. Inside the arc, the wood has been stained a darker complexion than the lighter wood of the court.

The new playing surface is expected to be finished within a week so that the basketball teams can train on the court when they report for summer workouts.
