DUKE CHAMPIONSHIP FLOOR FOR SALE

Following in the footsteps of their arch-rival, the University of North Carolina (the 2009 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Champions), the 2010 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Champion Duke Blue Devils will also be selling the floor they played on last month.

A company called Victory Courts LLC began selling portions of the Final Four court from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Monday.

Twelve different sizes and design options will be available throughout the year, including limited edition segments autographed by coach Mike Kʂɨˈʐɛ(f)9ski and seniors Jon Scheyer, Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek.

Victory Courts donated the center jump circle from the Lucas Oil Stadium floor to Duke, and will be making a financial contribution to the Emily K downtown Durham community center named built in honor of Kʂɨˈʐɛ(f)2ski 's late mother.

The gym at the Emily K Center currently features the court from Minneapolis upon which Duke won the 2001 NCAA title.
