FIU basketball court damaged in CrossFit competition

Monday September 15th, 2014

Florida International will need to repair its basketball court after it was damaged in a CrossFit competition, which often involve heavy weights.

FIU issued a statement about the court on Monday, from the Miami Herald:

"As a result of an outside event held at FIU Arena this past weekend, the court was damaged. The event was fully insured. We anticipate repairs being complete over the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately, the September 17th volleyball match between FIU and Florida Atlantic will be affected and will be played at the FIU Rec Center."

The school completed a beach-themed redesign of its basketball court last year.
