The Washington Huskies on Thursday unveiled a new basketball court design featuring the Seattle skyline on one side of the Alaska Airlines Arena floor.

The highlight is a silhouette of the Space Needle rising near midcourt. The new design also features filled-in three-point areas that match the wood tint of the skyline.

The Huskies began playing at the facility in 1927 and have 946 wins there, which UW boasts is the most of any Division I program at its current home arena.

Simmons goes to Saint Mary’s

Former Washington forward Desmond Simmons is transferring to Saint Mary’s to play his senior season, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

The 6-foot-7 Simmons announced in late March that he was leaving UW, looking to transfer to a school where he could have a more significant role.

He becomes the second Pac-12 player to transfer to Saint Mary’s, joining Bellevue High product Aaron Bright, who started 54 games at point guard over parts of four seasons for Stanford.

As graduate transfers, Simmons and Bright will both be eligible to play for the Gaels during the 2014-15 season.
